Started singing on the street corners of Queens at 13
years of age where he learned to sing the five parts of 
Doo Wop Harmony;
Base, Baritone, 2nd Tenor, 1st Tenor, & Last but not 
least, Lead Vocals.

Simultaneously, Kenny was learning  to play Jazz Drums, playing in basement and garage jazz quartets. Favorite drummers were Buddy Rich, Elvin Jones, and Grady Tate.

By the age of 18, Kenny was singing and playing drums
professionally.  Performed in his own Doo Wop group which came close to signing a recording contract but no cigar.  Played jazz in the famous Greenwich Village Five Spot and was in one of the youngest jazz bands to play in the legendary Birdland.
