BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH FLORIDA – Coastal Breed, one of central Florida’s most talented rising bands, will perform a concert during the Space Coast Seafood and Music Festival on Saturday, February 17 at 2 p.m at Space Coast Daily Park in Viera.
“We play to give people hope and inspiration,” said Guilermo Lopez del Castillo, the band’s dynamic drummer, who often dances as he plays his drums.
“We love to express ourselves through our music – and playing for packed venues is a rush. You can expect a new album coming from our band this year.”
Coastal Breed is another example of the creative talent that seems to continually spring from the people who live along the Space Coast of Florida. Whether it is the history of innovation and imagination that the Space Coast is known for or a result of the eclectic population, Coastal Breed defies reason and creates a great feeling among their audiences.
Matt Hunt: Known for his exciting guitar solos, Hunt’s strong and consistent work ethic is what keeps Coastal Breed in motion. “Matt is the motor that constantly pushes our team to grow,” said Lopez.

Austin Lerch: the former lead singer and face of the band has been replaced by Dustin Kicinski, a seasoned performer, who has brought his own flavor to the band by expanding the group’s arsenal of music – including a lot of originals.
“Austin is one of the most outgoing and funniest people you will ever meet – a must-see on stage. His charisma always gets people involved emotionally with our shows. It was tough to lose him but we are stoked to have Dustin join us,” said Lopez.
Chris Jeffries: Home grown in Melbourne, Florida, Jeffries is a father who shares his love of the ocean, coast and music with his young son.
Jeffries has brought a whole new feel to the group and has revamped the style of the band. He is a highly talented musician, composing music for the band and blends well with the band’s energy on stage.
Coastal Breed’s impresario and enigmatic drummer, Guillermo Lopez del Castillo, is a big part of the band’s performance, as he dances and inspires the audiences during the band’s gigs.
Much of the band grew up together, forming a house-party band in 2013.
“We would hang out at parties and freestyle music with acoustic guitars,” said Lopez.
“As people started to crowd around to listen, a drum set was introduced into the mix. One of our buddies owned a clothing/bar shop at the time and that is where we started playing shows.
Coastal Breed is a one of a kind. When they play it seems natural and free – like they are not playing for the crowd but rather playing with the audience.
“We like our gigs to be like a party with instruments and a stage,” says Lopez.
“One of the most special moments we have shared as a band is when a fan came up to us after hearing our music on the radio. She said she had just lost her grandfather and our song “Stay” helped her get over the hard time she was feeling. It meant a lot to be part of something that actually had a positive impact on someone.”
