Sound and recording engineer Jerry Kee holds an esteemed place in the local music community. For well over twenty years, he's been a go-to guy for local bands looking to cut a quality recording without breaking the bank, with a roster that includes Superchunk, Two Dollar Pistols, Polvo, Schooner, and several dozen others; through that spell, Kee has had eight different iterations of Duck Kee. But at the end of January, a fire struck Kee's home and studio, destroying almost everything. A crowdfunding effort has raised a few grand to help get Kee back on his feet, and several friends of Duck Kee have organized a benefit at Kings. The Saturday night show features The Vibe Killers, The Church, Pinto, Phatlynx, and Soft Boys, and on March 17, the venue hosts another rally for Kee that features The Bellbats, Maldora, Dana Kletter, and more. Duck Kee might not be a cat, but a ninth life is well-deserved.
