About Kelvin Roy
Kelvin grew up in Flint, Michigan. His father was from New Zealand and relocated to the United States after travelling there as a Fulbright scholar. Kelvin had copious lessons on piano and trombone, plus some voice training from an early age. He attended Flint Central High School, playing in many school bands and he was active in drama as well.

Later, he went on the road with a couple popular funk and jazz bands playing clubs after attending Michigan State University....
