“Eric Clapton is probably the biggest influence in my guitar playing career.”

Ever since Kenny plucked his first string at the age of ten, he dreamed of playing lead guitar like his heroes Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck.

After years of performing in the bars, clubs, and concert stages of Northern California as well as writing and recording music for the Sacramento Kings, Kenny decided the perfect vehicle to showcase his talents would be a band dedicated to the music of Eric Clapton. Thus, No Reason To Cry was formed.

When Kenny isn’t performing or teaching guitar he is constantly working to perfect the guitar style and tone and vocal delivery of the master, Slowhand himself, Eric Clapton.

As one of Sacramento's most notable guitarists, Kenny has been playing guitar for over 40 years and has taught and played professionally for over 30 years.  His thirty-plus years’ experience as a working musician includes performances at the Monterey Blues Festival, the International Pop Overthrow in Hollywood and in August 2012 Kenny performed in front of sixteen thousand people at Country In The Park in Sacramento, sharing the stage with major country music acts. His guitar talents have also been featured in numerous musical theater productions throughout the Sacramento area, where his playing has been described as “outstanding” and “stellar”. For the 1999-00 and 2000-01 NBA seasons, he wrote and recorded the music used by the Sacramento Kings during the team introductions. For the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons, his music was used for the Sacramento Kings' radio and TV broadcasts. In April 2016, Kenny had the honor of leading the National Anthem at the final Kings game at Sleep Train Arena. Kenny maintains a roster of approximately 50 guitar students each week.
