Kevin 'kFigg' Figueiredo is an American drummer.[1]

He has performed with artists/bands such as: Satellite Party, Dramagods, Population 1, The Doors, Slash, Nuno Bettencourt, Chester Bennington, Perry Farrell, Lucia Moniz and Tantric. Kevin has also recorded with Dramagods, Population 1, The Satellite Party, Lucia Moniz, and Extreme.

In November 2007, Kevin joined the reuniting band "Extreme" including original members Gary Cherone, Pat Badger, and Nuno Bettencourt, with whom Kevin performed in both Satellite Party and DramaGods. Kevin effectively replaces mentor Mike Mangini, who took over drum duties from Extreme's original drummer, Paul Geary, from 1994 to 1996.
