Kerry Kearney

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.

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. 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 Marty Balin (as Marty's guitarist and music director), Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts, and has performed with such contemporaries as Sonny Landreth and Robert Randolf. Kerry and his band have also shared the stage with the great BB King three times as well as the Robert Cray Band with the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Blues Brothers starring Dan Akyroyd and Jim Belushi, Sam Andrew with Big Brother & The Holding Company, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and legendary ZZ Top front-man Billy Gibbons as the opening act during Billy's Big Bad Blues Tour. The Kerry Kearney Band can also be seen entertaining the blues crowd on the main stage at the annual Great South Bay Music Festival on Long Island, we're they've shared the bill with countless national acts.

His latest studio effort, Smokehouse Serenade, offers listeners the opportunity to participate in the continuation of Kerry's musical journey. He takes his audience from foot stoppin' smokin' hot blues to the rootsy ballad to the full-on New Orleans experience and back. His band, featuring Mario Staiano on drums and Gerry Sorrentino on bass, is as tight as his electrifying guitar sounds. The CD also features a host of special guests. This is sure to be a fan favorite!
