Dan Kennedy

 

Saturday, August 16th at 7:30pm

Dan Kennedy, composer, pianist and recording artist plays Saturday, August 16, at 7:30pm. Classically trained, Kennedy got his start playing New Age/Contemporary Instrumental music at Oberlin College's Cat-in-the-Cream Coffeehouse. Now his music can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio (“Spa”) and his new album ‘Intuition' reached #7 on the ZMR Top 100, an international chart.

What sets Kennedy's music apart is that it is steeled with jazz and rock, along with rhythmic grooves and strong backbeats. His music conveys his forte with creating an upbeat, rhythmic brand of contemporary music in classic fashion. Bill Binkelman, of Zone Music Reporter says Kennedy plays “….a thoroughly enjoyable and instantly accessible mixture of light, friendly jazz and introspective acoustic solo piano pieces….”

A commissioned and award-winning composer, graduate of both Oberlin Conservatory and the New England Conservatory, Kennedy's music has been published by Dorn Publications (ASCAP) and Mt. Pollux Music (ASCAP). Kennedy's chamber music has been performed by the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Essex Chamber Music Players, at the Summer Institute for Contemporary Piano Performance and at the Aspen Music Festival. Kennedy's latest CD, 'Intuition' was produced by Corin Nelsen, a Grammy Award winner and was named as a Top 10 New Age Album of 2012 by John Olsen of New Age Music World.

Kathy Parsons, of MainlyPiano.com describes the new album as “an eclectic mix of Jazz, Rock and New Age genres, clearly demonstrating Kennedy's diverse composing styles.”
