Kevin McCarthy

The Pharaohs are Sacramento-based and contrary to musical folklore, don't walk like an Egyptian. Founded in 1999 by Harvey Livingston who brought in Markel Sadler (UC Davis) and Jason Barton (Chico State) to coach the initial team, the squad continues to this day under Barton's tutelage.
