Judyth Piazza chats with Kenny Watson, Multi-Instumentalist

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

From a soulful "Csardas" to a toe tapping "Orange Blossom Special" to a spellbinding "Fiddler on the Roof". Kenny thrills audiences with his violin virtuosity.   Critics have dubbed him "...the Victor Borge of the violin....." but he doesn't stop there. Add mandolin, trumpet, and a few "unique" instruments, a spectrum of characters as wide as the music they entertain you with, a generous measure of laughter and you'll see why Kenny has brought audiences to their feet on a variety of Cruise Lines that span the globe, Corporate Conventions in many major cities in the USA, the Bavarian music Festivals in Michigan, the Calgary Stampede in Canada, numerous County Fairs, and on a smaller more intimate scale, private Christmas, Birthday and Anniversary parties.

Watson's high energy change of pace of music, instruments and characters keeps audiences of a all ages on the edge of their seat, waiting for the next amazing musical accomplishment of the next uproariously funny antic that will keep the laughter alive.   The surprises keep coming right up to the end of the show!!

THE ULTIMATE SHOW ....... Thrill to the classics with "the professor"; take a toe-tapping trip to Kenny Kountry with "Kenny Bob" , groove with the "Jazzman" to ever-popular show tunes and international favorites, keep romance alive with the haunting strains of the violin when "The Gypsy" makes his violin cry.

Kenny grew up in Central California, playing the violin at the age of 7; he was the youngest member of the symphony at age 13. With years of concert experience behind him, Kenny made a the Marines. While completing a 4-year tour with the Marine Band, he gained international experience by performing in Japan, Okinawa, China, the Philippines, and Mexico.

After continuing his education in music composition, Kenny was able to do his own writing and arranging to keep his shows fresh and unique and geared toward any audience.


He has been doing "Pops" concerts with the symphony, not only performing, but writing the arrangements as well.

During his career, Kenny has taken his unique talent and brand of entertainment to 52 countries and 48 states and 7 provinces. Kenny performed for several years in Las Vegas and has recorded with "Lynard Skynard" at Capricorn studios for Warner Brothers Records. He has been the opening act for a wide range of performers, again showing his versatility. David Brenner, Phyllis Diller, Hank Williams Jr., Shirley Jones, Tommy Cash , Julius La Rosa, Jimmy Roberts, Debbie Boone, and Boots Randolph, to name a few.

His years of performing internationally have fine-tuned his ability to captivate any audience with his virtuosity. Kenny transcends all language barriers with his dazzling musical technique, unique comic characterization and his Grouch Marx-like appearance. He brings a new meaning to the quotes "music is a language all its own" an "laughter has no language barrier".

Most recently, Kenny has just completed several months in the Baltic, and finished off his tour with five sellout concerts in Coral Springs, Florida with the Coral Springs Symphony conducted by Sy Sugar.

Kenny spends most of his professional time performing on Cruise Lines, for Corporate Conventions and at Music Festivals.

  "WATSON"................ exceeds all your expectations!!
