The Kenya B Trio lays down jazzy blues and funk originals, and original arrangements of blues, jazz funk and soul from great artists of the 1960s through the 1990s and beyond.

Kenya (guitar and vocals) is the composer of the band’s original music and musical director for the band. His eclectic taste in old-skool music makes it come alive for today’s audiences of all ages. Whether it’s blues, mellow jazz, Memphis soul from the famous STaX music label, or classic funk, Kenya’s arrangements are a fresh take on familiar artists including Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Guitar Watson, James Brown, BB King, Muddy Waters, Bill Withers, Isley Brothers, Parliament and more.

This is how Kenya describes his musical vision for the Kenya B Trio: funky, experimental, danceable grooves. Sparse vocals, shredding funk and blues guitar solos. Syncopated bass lines routed in funk and blues. Funky old-skool drums with heavy backbeat focusing on the “1” and “2”.
