Kimbo's Studio
  about the studio
   With over 35 years in the music industry behind him, soulful vocalist, bassist extraordinaire & multi-instrumentalist Kim "Kimbo" Reichley is perhaps one of the most well-known and best-loved musicians & studio engineers in central PA, although his musical career has taken him across the country and to the farthest reaches of China. While the electric bass is his primary instrument in his beloved band, The Blind Chitlin Kahunas, Kimbo is also very comfortably at home on acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro and upright bass ... and he performs often as a solo act or in duos with talented friends Bryan Noaker or outlaw country boy Frank Wicher.
     Over the years, Kimbo has performed or recorded with
(most notably) electric violinist David Rose ('85-'94), The Front Porch Country Band (US & China tours), Daddy-O & The Sax Maniax, Frank Wicher, Bryan Noaker, Aztec Bronze, Brothers & Others, Voyage, Ann Kerstetter, Don Krech, Averie Clark and countless other regional friends. He has also appeared on stage with the likes of Randy Travis, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Brooklyn Bridge, EG Kight and more.
     Kimbo originally built his recording studio just for himself, to record his own music ... but it wasn't long before others started demanding his talent as a recording engineer. His laid-back, "no pressure" approach to recording has won the loyalty of almost every artist to ever record at his studio.
     Some of Kimbo's favorite listening music includes Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, Delbert McClinton, Keb Mo, Mavis Staples, Johnny Winter and Harry Manx, to name only a few. Kimbo's musical tastes cover every genre of music, with a particular fondness for blues, bluegrass, folk, R&B, soul and funk ... especially when they're all mixed together, with artists such as Little Feat.
     As for some of Kimbo's favorite things in life? A good song, a great singer, Dogfish Head 60Min IPA ale, hot wings, spicy chili, saucy ribs & BBQ ... and layin' down the groove with his beloved Kahunas. He's also an avid kayaker & cyclist, when he's not enjoying sitting in with musical friends at a local pub or experimenting with culinary treats in the kitchen. Kimbo makes his home outside of quaint Lewisburg, PA (adjacent to his studio) with his wife Dena and their two pooches, Sadie & Josie.
