City Winery New York presents Remembering Jeff Beck live on January 17 at 8 PM.
Remembering Jeff Beck featuring Kenny Aaronson (of The Yardbirds), Godfrey Townsend (of The Yardbirds), Vernon Reid (of Living Color), Wilbur Bascomb (Jeff Beck, James Brown), Steve Holley (Paul McCartney and Wings, Mott the Hoople), King Solomon Hicks and Musical Director Kirk Yano.
Kenny Aaronson was born in Brooklyn, New York. He started playing drums at the age of eleven, following in his older brother's footsteps. Kenny switched to electric bass at the age 14 after becoming enamored by the low end of the bass on Motown records that he would hear on the jukeboxes in local pizza joints. To this day, he is still a huge James Jamerson fanatic. As a teenager, he played bass for Brooklyn based hard rock band Dust, which included Marc Bell (a.k.a. Marky Ramone), which released two albums in 1971 and '72 on the Kama Sutra label. In 1973, Aaronson joined the New York band Stories, who's single,"Brother Louie", reached #1 on the Billboard, Cashbox and Record World charts.
