Why hire Ken Sherman?
With over 50 years experience, I can provide music for all events and parties. I have the following bands: Piano single, duo with horn or vocalist, add a bass for a trio, another horn or vocalist makes a quartet, additional musicians all the way up to a 9-piece "little big band" and 17-piece swing dance "big-band".
...Or, lets work together and custom-build a band to suit your needs.
I also am a classically-trained performing artist on flute. We can provide "quiet" ambient music, dinner and dance music, shows and entertainment.
My #1 priority is your satisfaction, because if you like us you'll re-book in the future.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 120 - 300 minutes
If we are doing a concert performance such as a jazz concert, we have the very best musicians, all of whom are "big names" in the jazz field. If a dance band is needed, we will help make that event a success, and keep the floor full of dancers. If background/ambient music is called for, we will add to the atmosphere without intruding.
stage size depends on size of group being booked
We bring all equipment and our own sound system. As long as we have access to electricity, we are complete.
Song list can be furnished on request, and is determined by the type of event and what style music is most suitable
