You might as well be messing with my mama! And nobody messes with my mama...

Kevin Richard Reed is one of the two tritagonists in How to Rock. He may rock the drum solo with the band but he has another love --- food. Constantly hungry and always munching on snacks, it's safe to say that he's got a thing for eating. He's super close with Nelson Baxter and you'll never see the two apart, and if you do, just know that is the weirdest thing ever. Don't be surprised if you see them high fiving each other over lame jokes. They're practically brothers.

Kevin is portrayed by Chris O'Neal.


In "How to Rock a Messy Bet", Kevin (and Nelson) fight the urge to play their new game obsession, Furious Pigeons.

In "How to Rock a Guest List", Kevin was whining at training because all the food was plastic.

In "How to Rock a Statue", Kevin and Nelson unsuccessfully try to prove they are smarter than hamsters.

In "How to Rock an Election", he runs for president and he wins after Kacey drops out in order for him to win the election.

Relationship with Others

Nelson Baxter

Status: Best Friends/Bandmate/Practically Brothers

They are best friends with tons of inside jokes and hand shakes. And in almost every scene they are in, they are talking to each other. They are also known to be obsessed with Furious Pigeons and love doing crazy things together. (See: Kelson

Kacey Simon

Status: Good Friends/Long Time Crush

They are shown to be good friends and don't seem to be annoyed with each other. In "How to Rock a Statue", when Kacey smiles at Kevin, Nelson, and Zander, he says he really likes that face and they both look at the floor and smile shyly. In "How to Rock a Love Song", he says he is willing to leave the band for Kacey, and he wishes that Zander's love song is for Stevie, as he likes Kacey. (See: Kavin)

Stevie Baskara

Good Friends

The two seem to care for each other. After Kacey left Gravity 5 in How to Rock Braces and Glasses, Kevin and Stevie were comforting each other in one another's arms. (See: Kevie)

Zander Robbins

Status: Good Friends

Molly Garfunkel

Possible Crush and Admirer (Sometimes)
