ABOUT

Hello, my name is Kenneth Benson and I'm an professional drummer/percussionist based in Dallas,TX. I have over 14 years of experience on my principal instrument (drums). I'm versatile in many styles but I specialize in funk/soul, pop, gospel,r&b, and jazz. I've toured with several artist (SoreLosers,Johnny Mac,Tim Clifton) and I'm also a on call studio musician at several local studios(The Kitchen). I also perform with different cover/variety bands (Intensity, Mi Diva Loca, Empire6) and teach on the side. I love to entertain/perform and travel. Music is my passion and I love what I do!
