Tom Kammer and Kent Moore found Dan Sullivan to play bass and spent 13 years playing NE Iowa bars as “The Basics“, doing basic 70’s and 80’s, in a 3 piece rock band.
THE BASICS were a popular northeast Iowa band originally formed in 1988 by Kent Moore and Jim Hines. In 1990 Kent Moore re-formed the band with Dan Sullivan & Tom Kammer. They performed all over Iowa, Minnesota & Wisconsin. They opened shows for Rare Earth, Johnny Preston, Cub Koda (Brownsville Station) & Highway 101 among others. THE BASICS stopped performing in 2003 after 13 years together without a change in personnel.
“The Basics are a good three-member rock band.”
Des Moines Register
“The Basics had an overall bluesy feel which reeled me in and kept me listening.”
