Kenny Wayne Shepherd to Tour with Experience Hendrix


Sign in to view read count
Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band has released LIVE! In Chicago, which showcases Kenny and his band, Noah Hunt, Chris Layton, Scott Nelson and Riley Osbourn, along with special guests, blues legends Hubert Sumlin, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Buddy Flett, Bryan Lee and Tommy Shannon (of Double Trouble).

While Kenny's musical career has been nothing short of phenomenal, his passion for cars easily matches his passion for guitars. To celebrate the release of LIVE! In Chicago, Roadrunner Records has posted a video of Kenny giving fans an exclusive look into his custom-built 1970 Plymouth Duster.

The brilliant cast of musicians on LIVE! In Chicago is evidence of Kenny's commitment to uniting older and younger generations of bluesmen on one stage. His reverence and awe for blues tradition is only made clearer by listening to the single “I'm a King Bee," a swamp blues song first recorded by the legendary Slim Harpo in 1957.

Kenny is also going on the road as part of the Experience Hendrix tour.

Over the course of his storied career, Kenny has amassed four Grammy nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville H. Gibson Awards, the Blues Foundation's “Keeping the Blues Alive" award and a Blues Music Award. In 2008, Fender released the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Signature Series Stratocaster. 2007's CD/DVD 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads was nominated for two Grammy Awards, aired on PBS television nationwide and has been certified RIAA Gold as a Long Form Video.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
