Kenny received his first drum when he was 6. He practiced day and night until his parents sent him to a boarding school in the Mariana Islands. They decided that was far enough away that the pounding in their heads could subside. The USAF brought Kenny to Abilene and, after hiding out for almost a year, he was contacted and enlisted by the Abilene Pipers. Kenny has appeared on numerous television shows and holds the distinction of being killed in every episode. Strangers often greet him with, “Oh no, they killed Kenny”…….for some unknown reason.
