Ken has been a performing musician for over thirty years, cutting his teeth on the streets of Stuttgart with a six string and a harmonica taped into a coat-hanger. From 1988 to 1997, he played mostly religious music with over 75 songs written during that time. Once he transitioned into writing, he played occasional room concerts and parties at conventions. But in 2012, he started playing regular gigs as a one-man show and bringing his guitar on book tours.
In Fall 2016, a musical miracle occurred when he met jazz musician and luthier Keith Hendrix. They started playing together and soon decided to form a band, playing a wide mix of covers and original music. Hendrix plays an eight string guitar/bass hybrid of his own making plus keyboard and percussion.
Ken Scholes and the Hendrix Happening is available for gigs — both traditional venues and non-traditional venues like conventions and workshops. They plan to cut their first album, Back Into the Land of Living, in Summer 2017.
