Kenny's Prog Rock Jukebox on Twtich
Being a musician is a funny thing. The first 25 years of my life, my only exposure to other musicians was mostly other guitarists or drummers. Occasionally, I'd hear a piano player or someone who played a decent Hammond organ. But in the summer of 2020, I was watching the Fantastic Plastics Twitch stream and they were interviewing Kenny Friedman. Kenny hosts his own Twitch channel called 'KennysProgRockJukebox' ( Here's a link ) on twitch.tv. Twitch is a live streaming service for mostly gamers, but in the late 2010s, they opened it up to other types of streams like IRL (In Real Life) and Music. Musicians can host live streams where they play originals or covers and viewers can chat, tip and interact with the streamer.
Kenny is unlike any other musician I've seen. His piano (and guitar) playing are amazing. It would be one thing if he was this amazing keys player, but on top of that he plays guitar as well. Not just any guitar songs, he plays Steve Vai. That's no small feat. Also, his song list of covers is well over 4000 songs and he often plays songs 'cold' (meaning he doesn't know them or hasn't ever played them). His ear is amazing. Please check out his live stream below You can view his schedule here.
Stay tuned for the feature on Kenny's 2nd channel, TheJukesters!
