Profile
Kalaban was an American progressive rock together from approximately 1983 to 1997. The nucleus of the band was Randy Graves, Michael Stout, and Gary Stout. Many talented bass players helped create the energy of the band. Dave Wilbur, Kent Underwood, and Rob Johnson were some of the more durable of this parade. David Thomas did most of the vocals but Doug Lyman was an early singer. After years of inactivity, Graves rebooted the project nearly 20 years later with drummer Kyle Nish.
