SIMPLY JESSICA: MeKai Curtis talks about season three of ‘Kirby Buckets’

MeKai Curtis is a teen actor and a musician who plans to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston. He plans to learn as much as he can about music so he can be a music engineer and a music producer.

Curtis plays Fish on Disney XD’s “Kirby Buckets” and Zack on “Milo Murphy’s Law.”

It was actor-singer Tyrese that showed him that he could have a career in music and acting.

“I thought I would have to pick either acting or music,” Curtis said. “Until I looked at Tyrese. Then I realized I could do both. Tyrese is successful at music and acting. I have learned so much from him.”

Curtis enjoys obtaining knowledge from different people that he meets along life’s journey. He likes having fun and having serious conversations. He is open minded to what life brings him.

He sees music as therapy that allows him to express himself.

“Music allows me to express what I’m feeling,” Curtis added.

The future music producer would love to play Duke Ellington or any musician from the past. His father is a music producer who has toured the world and worked with countless singers. It was his father that noticed that he had passed his music gene to his oldest child.

“He noticed that I loved music,” Curtis said. “I’ve been playing drums since I was 9 months old. I play music in a band that I started with my younger brothers. We play for fun and we really enjoy it.”

The high school sophomore also loves abstract art.

“My room is full of abstract artwork,” Curtis added.

Curtis is super excited about season three on “Kirby Buckets.”

“This season will take a left turn for Kirby,” Curtis said. “It stays true to the show being about trying not to get killed on a crazy adventure. You will get to see a different side to Kirby in season three.”

Curtis is similar to the character Fish that he plays on Kirby Buckets.

“Fish is there for his boys just as I am,” Curtis said. “He is fashion forward. I like to keep it simple but different. Fish is kind hearted and girl crazy.

“I enjoy playing PlayStation, going to the mall with my friends, but I also like staying home and just chilling.”

As we come to the end of our conversation, Curtis tells me about a new Disney XD series that he is starring in called “Milo Murphy’s Law,” which is based on the theory that anything that can go wrong will.

“Milo Murphy’s Law” will air Monday nights at 8 p.m. on Disney XD.

Curtis plays Zack Underwood, the new kid in Swamp City.

Curtis is enjoying playing in a live action television show and an animated TV show as he waits to attend Berklee College of Music.
