Kenny is the founding member of Cold Sweat. The band was designed to be similar to Ringo Starr's All Star Band, where each member of the band takes turns singing lead and fronting the band; this way no one member of the group needs to sing lead to all the songs. Kenny says "It gives the audience a good taste of each band member's talents and makes the group into something that is much bigger than any one member. In other acts one members usually sings most of the tunes, but with Cold Sweat we all share this role which makes for a true partnership where we all have the opportunity to contribute on an equal basis."
