KUVO Studio Club welcomes former Colorado resident and drummer, Kenneth Brown and his Quartet to the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio on Friday, September 15 - 5 to 6pm. Band Members: Kenneth Brown – Drums, Will Boyd – Saxophone, Daryl Gott – Alto Saxophone, David Becher – Bass, and Tenia Nelson – Piano
Born into a musical family Kenneth's household was filled with music led by his father and later his brother Keith also a pianist. It was also during this same time period that Kenneth started to gain exposure to all kinds of music which has always paid big dividends!
By the age of 4 Kenneth was already playing drums and within a couple more years was studying piano "to gain a harmonic foundation in the music". With lots of practice and informal playing by the age of 14 Kenneth had established himself as a working musician and has since maintained a steady career within the genres of jazz, R&B, blues, funk, and rock with performances with David "Fathead" Newman, Curtis Fuller, Steve Nelson, Warren Wolf and Greg Tardy to name a few!
His performance background in those varied musical settings along with his musical influences of Prince, Elvin Jones, Stevie Wonder and Tony Williams to name a few has prepared Kenneth Brown and readied him to record 3 Down!
Prior to recording his debut CD Kenneth has appeared on recordings with Ravi Coltrane, Wallace Roney, Kenny Garrett and Donald and Keith Brown to name a few!
