Originally from a small town in PA, Ive been playing guitar, singing and writing songs since the age of 15, playing in bands and performing solo.
In my career I have shared the stage with The Goo Goo Dolls, Glen Frey (The Eagles), Matchbox Twenty, John Waite, Eddie Money, Tonic, Robben Ford, and many others.

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 years of entertainment experience. Please do contact me today!



***WEDDINGS:
I can provide all the music for your 'special day', including light cocktail & dinner music and will even learn any special songs you might want as part of your event! 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 also assist you (if requested) in choosing appropriate song selections for your wedding ceremony (processional, bride entrance, sand or candle ceremonies, recessional and first dance). I understand how stressful your wedding day can be. I can guarantee that I will return your emails or phone calls PROMPTLY and will always be available to discuss any details or concerns you might have. I will do my part to ensure that the music on your wedding day will be beautiful, inspiring, and above all memorable!

***COCKTAIL HOUR:
I play appropriate song selections tailored to the favorite music style of the bride and groom. I keep all of the music happy and upbeat and of course romantic as well. I will also take requests from the guests. Most importantly I always perform at a volume level that is not overpowering and will allow the guests to easily converse with each other in a normal manner.



***EQUIPMENT:
I have ALL of the musical equipment required for ANY event.



Sincerely,
Kenny Earnest

I had the honor to have Ken be our musical genius at my wedding this past Sunday. Ken was very professional, he came a few hours early to ensure everything was set up on time, he was dressed to impress and he was such a friendly and lively person. Ken seemed to know the exact mood we were going for at the wedding, I felt comfortable letting him just do his thing! I truly hope I can have another event soon just to book Ken, he is truly talented at what he does and I wish I could have heard him perform even more. Thank you so much Ken for making our wedding day that much more special, you are awesome!!!

Kenny Earnest was fabulous ! He played for my daughter's wedding and reception at the Chart House in Dana Point, and I had a number of guests ask me for his name and number. He was MOST accommodating and very professional. He even accompanied the groom's 10-year-old nephew, while the little guy played Canon in D on his violin for the processional ! His music was wonderful . . .just what we wanted, and not too loud. Perfect background music for a wedding. He was easy to communicate with prior to the event, and stayed longer than I expected at the reception. I would definitely use him again, and I would highly recommend him.

Kenny was fantastic! We had him play during our wedding and reception. Nearly all of our guests commented on how talented he was and how much they enjoyed him. He took requests as well as played all the songs we asked him to. He was very accommodating and responded right away to any questions I had leading up to our big day. I would hire him again and recommend him without hesitation. -Sarah & Randy
