Kenney Holmes is Washington’s Premiere Act. He and his band have performed for the Presidential Inaugural Balls of Bill Clinton, George Bush I and II, Barack Obama and for the who’s who of DC Society. Kenney’s vocal style and instrumental prowess has wowed audiences for over 40 years nationally and internationally. Starting as a teenager in New York backing acts from the Apollo Theater to Musical Director for DC’s House Band backing Rhythm and Blues greats like ZZ Hill, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Don Convay, Phoebe Snow and many more.
Featured in the Washington Post Magazine and interviewed on NPR (National Public Radio), Kenny is the #1 sought after Wedding Singer in the Washington DC area. He has been compared to BB King perhaps because his choice of instrument is a gold gilded “Lucille” guitar inlaid with mother of pearl or maybe it is just that he plays the blues with the intensity of a seasoned blues man. He has also been compared to the likes of George Benson and Wes Montgomery as Kenney is an accomplished jazz guitarist and vocalist.
