"There's no boogie-woogie-blues piano man out there today who pounds the 88's with the conviction of Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne."...Chicago Sun Times. A big statement from a town that has produced it's share of Blues Piano Legends. Originally from Washington, moving to San Francisco Kenny move on to New Orleans, where all the greats come from or spend time. Fats Domino, Huey Piano Smith, Dr. John and in that line up, Kenny Wayne. He has also shared the stage with the likes of Sly and The Family Stone and The Doobie Brothers “Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne is a monster piano player, imaginative songwriter and soulful singer who captures the essence of old school blues and boogie, while simultaneously sounding totally fresh and contemporary.” Blues Icon Duke Robillard (Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Roomful of Blues) Wayne’s musical journey began with him soaking up the sounds of gospel music, as his dad was a preacher. From there it was into jazz and latin music, before the doors opened to R&B and soul. Living in Wayne continued to wade into a variety of sub-genres including swing, bebop, standards and dance music. “Gospel is the foundation for this gumbo. Venturing down different avenues was what I did,” states Wayne as he points to Duke Ellington, Ray Charles and Cal Tjader as major influences.

“Ray Charles could do it all so incredibly well, and soulfully. I also credit my dad for instilling in me that: if you are going to do something, be successful at it. The musical gumbo that Wayne refers to has simmered and marinated for a long time, with all the elements complimenting each other perfectly. A worldwide treasure.
