$200 - $750 per event
Having live music can make any event magical. For decades, Ken has delighted audiences with his own style of folk, blues, rock and jazz. From intimate dining venues and coffeehouses to college concerts and outdoor festivals, Ken's warm voice and acoustic guitars create a unique space with great songs and a warm vibe. He connects with his audiences and as one person said... we feel like we're listeining to an old friend in our living room.

In a solo performance, expect the unexpected. You might get a Beatles, James Taylor or Steve Goodman song followed by Cole Porter, a delta blues or an 18th century folk song... nothing is off-limits. But you can always expect a fun-filled evening of music.

Consider booking Ken for a private party, house concert, gallery opening, wine tastings or any other event where solo acoustic guitar and voice would add that special touch.

Ken can also booked as a solo artist or as a duo or trio. Ken & Sara, the violinist, provide an elegant touch for wedding ceremonies, cocktail parties and small corporate events. Ken also fronts the Nite Hawks which plays jazz standards (a tribute to Tin Pan Alley composers including songs recorded by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, etc. They are ideal for wedding receptions, corporate events, libraries and food festivals.

Ken was friendly, professional and a great singer and muscian. He played so many older familiar songs from our era - James Taylor, Eagles, etc. Our neighbors who are talented, part-time musicians got up and jammed with Ken, and he welcomed them like a true professional. All in all, a magical, friendly evening, and Ken was the centerpiece of it all. We highly recommend him to anyone - a family party (like ours), a wedding or a corporate event. He's a gem.

Ken and Sare were exactly what we wanted.. we were 100% satisfied and everyone totally enjoyed Ken and Sara's music. Prior to the event Ken took the time to collaborate with my sister in law to have her sit in on a few songs playing the violin as a birthday gift to my wife. It was extreamly special for my wife's parents to see something so personal and wonderful happen in this kind of setting,,, they could not have been happier and it would not have happend without Ken and Sara's cooperation and effort. Folks from ages 12 through 92 were there and all commented positively. As far as I concerned you could not ask for better result.
