Kenny shocks you with his talent and ecstatically high, rich and complex guitar skills, which grab your soul and never let go. The band keeps tight and the tunes stay steady in their mission to satisfy the human need for deep rhythm and speed, and ever so gently he also raises awareness and consciousness of social issues among the audience, providing a rare glimpse at a guitar Jedi Master.

What to Expect
The Sundowners can play acoustically for quiet events or turn up the volume for big events! No matter where we play, you are going to hear music that comes from four guys that love to play. Kenny Lee writes songs that speak of real life and the struggles that many of us experience. You will hear Ken M. play some of the most beautiful guitar solos that you will hear anywhere. Marcos and Alan lay down the grooves that get people up dancing!
Kenny Lee and The Sundowners originated in Tillamook, OR with a dream by Kenny Lee to write songs and create a band. After many configurations, the current line up is by far the tightest and most versatile that the band has ever been.
Kenny Lee plays rhythm guitar, lead guitar, lap steel and acoustic, writes songs and is the lead singer of the group.
Ken M (Mortellaro) is our lead guitar player. Originally from New York, Ken is a fantastic guitar player with very tasty licks.
Marcos Ferrez is from Brazil. His bass playing is unique in that his influences create fantastic grooves for the band and he is a monster on the 6 string bass!
Alan Wicks on drums. He is as solid of a drummer as they come and creates the beats that hold it all together (and does a little back up singing too).
Additional Booking Notes
The Sundowners can supply their own PA and lighting. They have professional equipment for any event.
