Had a Baby ‘- Richard Clapton `Prushan Blue’, Joe Walsh and The Party
Boys, of which Kevin was a founding member.

(in that order) performed the Melbourne International Music & Blues
Festival. In recognition of Kevin’s contribution to Australian music and
blues culture he was inducted into the Australian Blues Foundation Hall
of Fame. 2004 and more gigs, more touring, more festivals and a new CD -
Kevin includes a 1930’s National Steel
acoustic guitar in his show. This “laid-back” acoustic style is a very
well received addition to Kevin’s performance on a selection of electric
guitars, including his Fender Stratocaster and Gibson Firebird slide
Due to popular demand, Kevin has
independently produced and released his CDs.
`Live at the Big Kahuna’ - a blues-based double live CD which shows
Kevin’s versatile guitar style.
’Heart Starter’ - strong powerful and
sensitive playing from guys who have tons of cred, Harry Brus (bass) and
John Annas (drums) and on 2 tracks Kevin's son Lucius Borich (drums).
'Nomad' - a mighty experience of the combined musical talents of KB,
Lucius Borich (drums and bass) and Mark Kennedy (drums and percussion)
