Kenny Lavitz grew up in the musical melting pot of New Jersey and New York, and it was there that he learned the rudiments of music. In his early 20's, wanting to further his musical knowledge, Kenny moved to Miami where he became involved in intense and advanced musical studies and where the fertile mix of Latin rhythms, Jazz, and Blues guided him further along his musical journey. After his studies in Miami, Kenny attended G.I.T. in Los Angeles where he worked with and learned from some of the greatest musicians and teachers in the world. Upon completing his studies, Kenny spent several years touring with a variety of bands as both a lead guitarist and a vocalist. With that apprenticeship completed, Kenny formed his own band, toured successfully for five years before he decided to settle in Portland, Oregon. Kenny is an accomplished, in-demand guitar instructor and performs solo, duo, and with a full band. He is also a featured local artist on KINK radio and currently plays clubs, private parties, festivals and special events throughout the Northwest. Kenny is very excited about his original BluesJam/FunkJazz project called the Kenny Lavitz Kombo , featuring Rudy Battjes on Drums, Jon Hughes on Bass and Tim Bly on Sax.
