AND THE STALKERS :: BIO
Bluesman, Ken Sorensen, A.K.A. Stringbean Wheeler, is a veteran
of the Jersey Shore/New York City Blues scene. Entertaining folks
at venues as diverse as the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, B.B.
King Blues Club in New York, the Ragin' Cajun in Belmar and outdoor
biker rallies, Stringbean is comfortable with an audience. He is
a regular performer at the Clearwater Festival in Asbury Park, has
played on boat cruises, in parking garages, at NYC street fairs
and at book stores. He is always looking for new and different places
Whether your passion is blues, funk or classic country, you'll find
a smattering of all three genres at a typical performance by Kenny
"Stringbean" Sorensen and his band, the Stalkers. Aside from Sorensen
on vocals, harmonica and guitar, the Stalkers include Sonny Kenn
on guitar, Dave Meyers on bass and Victor Bayers on drums.
Stringbean has opened for B.B. King, James Cotton and Dickie Betts.
He has played with the members of Blues Travelers, the Spin Doctors
and with Joan Osborn and Rob Waserman. He often sits in with Billy
Hector, Sonny Kenn and Castel Brown but his heart lies in his humble
acoustic ensemble. So whether it's an outdoor jazz/blues festival,
a smokey blues bar, a quiet coffee house or a backyard BBQ, give
him a call...he will be happy to play. MORE
