Steve Kenny studied at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Among other projects, he has performed with What Would Monk Do and the Cedar Avenue Big Band. He’s best known as co-founder of the Illicit Sextet, an ensemble popular in the 1990s before taking a long hiatus, and now back in action with a new CD released in spring 2013. Steve also recently completed a run of 500 weekly gigs at Emma’s Bar in River Falls and five years of weekly gigs with The Bastids, then Group 47, playing the early Wednesday set at the Artists Quarter. These days he is often on the band stand at Jazz Central, the Black Dog, Sweet 317 and the Dakota Late Night. Steve has received a Minnesota Music Award, West Bank School of Music Jazz Composer award, and multiple honors as Best Jazz Trumpet at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival. This summer, Steve’s Group 47 will release Straight to Vinyl. And that instrument he plays? It’s a “flumpet”– a hybrid trumpet/flugelhorn.
