Awesome Job!

Kenny was accommodating, professional, and a great guitar player/singer. We hired him for our wedding on short notice and, not only did he exceed expectation, he went above and beyond to make our night a huge hit! Hire this guy!!!

FACTS:
Looking for that 'special' music for your wedding ceremony/reception(?) or, you want great entertainment for a company event but don't want to pay the [thousands of] bucks for a full band(?) or, you're throwing an annual soiree/party and you want a segue of great music that each & every guest will enjoy(!?). Whatever entertainment needs you have I will make sure that they are fulfilled. Rest assured that, by hiring me, you get not only a top-level performer (one who's always prompt, personable, captivating & courteous) but, also... above all... a consummate professional with decades of 'know-how' and entertainment experience. Please do contact me today!


***WEDDING CEREMONIES:
If you prefer traditional music for your wedding ceremony I can perform "Canon in D" or perhaps you would like to walk down the aisle to a more contemporary selection like "Marry Me" by Train. I will work with you and assist you in selecting the perfect music for your most important day.

***HISTORY:
My Dad started me playing guitar at age 10 and I've continually developed my guitar-playing skills, having written more than 150 original songs and special pieces of music. In my career, I've supported such major acts as: The Goo-Goo Dolls, Matchbox Twenty, Glen Frey(The Eagles), John Waite, Eddie Money, Tonic, & Pat Benatar, having also performed at venerable venues like: the Bren Center, Coach House, Galaxy Theater, the Roxy, Verizon Amphitheater & Whiskey-a-GoGo.. and all the memorable gigs in between.
