Singer/songwriter/saxophonist Ken Francis Wenzel will introduce his own roots-rock, country jazz-tinged take on love, learning and life in contemporary America to the Old Ox crowd on Friday night. Ken studied classical saxophone at the University of Illinois before graduating from UNLV in Las Vegas with a degree in jazz studies. After a decade of playing saxophone all over the world with renowned artists such as Frankie Avalon, Been Vereen, Bobby Parker, and Carlos Santana, he tired of being considered “just” a saxophonist. Ken decided to buy himself an acoustic guitar and began reinventing his own sense of musicianship. Preview Ken here.
