Address: 1301 S East St, Amherst, MA 01002, USA
Sub Genres: Contemporary Instrumental
My name is Dan Kennedy and I am a pianist/performer from Amherst, Massachusetts headlining at the Corning (IA) Opera House on Sept. 16, 2017: http://www.corningoperahouse.com/calendar.html. I am looking for more solo piano shows to increase the size of this “Mini-Tour.” I am a modern solo pianist in the vein of Jim Brickman or Robin Spielberg. I have also worked with two Grammy winning producers. My relaxing but energizing Contemporary Instrumental music has garnered awards, including a Best Album nomination from OWM, a SENE Film Fest selection, and an RNA Video of the Month. My unique storytelling connects with my audiences on a personal level as well. Music, videos, & more: http://www.dankennedy.us/landingpagebooking.htm (This is a good starting place to learn more about my contemporary instrumental music infused with jazz, classical, and new age.) An award winning composer-pianist, I'm a graduate of Oberlin and New England Conservatories. I am a Whisperings as well as an Enlightened Piano Radio artist. Heard on over 250 radio stations, including Pandora, Spotify, Sirius XM, and Music Choice, my music has been produced by the legendary Will Ackerman (George Winston, Liz Story, Michael Hedges). I have played 100 engagements in the last 3 years – in New England and across the country as well. My last two albums have gone Top 10 on the ZMR Top 100 chart. I have worked with: Steve Holley, drums (Elton John & Paul McCartney); Premik Russell Tubbs, sax (Whitney Houston & Santana); Glen Velez, percussion (Steve Reich & Paul Winter); Greg Loughman, bass (Patti Page & Philip Aaberg); Charles Neville, sax (The Neville Brothers, BB King).
