About Ken Kenndedy

A native of North Carolina and resident of High Point, Ken Kennedy has spent his lifetime singing and playing music. As the vocalist for the Piedmont Airlines, later the US Air Jazz Orchestra, he consistently amazed audiences throughout the world in his engagements at the Grand Casino, Deauville, and Paris, France; London; throughout Europe, as well as most major cities in the USA. He sang for a distinguished audience, which included then-Vice President George H. W. Bush when the Space Shuttle Enterprise was donated to the Smithsonian Institution. Upon the Vice President's recommendation, he later entertained at the Southern Governors' Conference in Charlotte. He also sang successively before then ex-President George H. W. Bush and then First Lady Hillary Clinton at the prestigious Congressional Medal of Honor Society meetings.

With the peerless Ken Kennedy Band, he has entertained widely. He was the featured artist at the Bermuda Jazz Festival and for many years at the Crosby Golf Tournament, as well as many other occasions in which he appeared as an "entertainer's entertainer." He has performed over the years with such musical greats as The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ben E. King and Branford Marsalis. He was the featured vocalist in the "Down Home with the Carolina Pops" tour with the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra, during which he performed the music of a number of North Carolina artists in styles ranging from bluegrass to jazz. He recently was a guest artist on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
