This Tuesday, August 17th, the guys welcome the great pianist Kenny Banks Jr. back to Park Street Tavern for a rare Columbus appearance. Don’t miss this jazz jam as Kenny is an incredible musician and we’re excited to have him perform in Columbus. The jam begins at 8:30pm and musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments and sit in. Here’s what local jazz great, Christian Howes has to say about Kenny Banks Jr.
21 year-old Kenny Banks Jr. is one of my favorite pianists. I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with him alongside Cedric Easton (drums) and Hamilton Hardin (keys), every Wednesday at Dick’s Den for the past couple months.
Those familiar with the Columbus jazz scene will remember the name because Kenny Banks Sr. used to play around Columbus before moving to Atlanta roughly 10 or so years ago. Kenny Banks Jr. shares the soulfulness in the playing of his father, with the boundless energy and guts of youth.
