Our good friend and extraordinarily talented musician, Kerry Kearney takes residency at Thai Rock the 1st Sunday of the month bringing with him guest musicians amalgamating a unique acoustic ensemble. Performing songs we grew up with and can sing along to, you will feel that warm embrace of good vibes and happy times in an inviting atmosphere while gazing the panoramic scenic views of Jamaica Bay.
Kerry Kearney, a slide guitar master, plays and works his instrument to limits that amaze even the most seasoned musician or cultured music fan. The sounds Kerry creates from his vintage, stock and custom made guitars are as unique as his song writing and original melodies. Kerry was voted "Best Guitarist of 1999" by the LI Voice and “Bluesman of the Year 2004” by the LI Blues Society. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Long Island Sound Award (L.I.S.A.) from the LI Music Hall of Fame and most recently, in 2013, he and his band mates were each inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame. He has toured nationally and internationally with the Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts, and has performed with such contemporaries as Sonny Landreth and Robert Randolf. Kerry and his band have shared the stage with the great BB King at the NYCB Westbury Theater and at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY. They have also opened for the Robert Cray Band with the Blind Boys of Alabama,the Blues Brothers starring Dan Akyroyd and Jim Belushi, and most recently for Legendary ZZ Top front man Billy Gibbons in New York and Washington, DC. Kerry and his band can also be seen performing on the main stage entertaining the blues crowd at the annual Great South Bay Music Festival on Long Island. Kerry Kearney’s style, music from the “Psychedelta”, is his own brand containing an upbeat mix of American Blues & Roots, created from writing and performing on the circuit for over 40 years. Along with his band, he has continued to experience an overwhelming and positive response over the airwaves and especially when performing live. His wailing upbeat style of blues, driven by tasty, inspired guitar riffs, electrifying slide and infectious rhythms, has allowed Kerry to amass a huge loyal following.
We welcome these accomplished musicians to Thai Rock and look forward to a great evening
