Ranked as one of the "Top Nine Unsigned Bands in the World" by the International Blues Challenge, Memphis, TN, the Ken Rhyne Band plays Blues/Blistering Blues Rock/Southern Blues Rock & Roll the way our "Forefathers of Blues" intended it to be. From the juke joints and taverns in Memphis, New Orleans and the Delta Blues of Mississippi, to the night clubs and casinos throughout the US and Canada, Ken Rhyne emerged as one of the most accomplished Blues/Blues Rock/Southern Rock & Roll artists of our time. His dedication to musical perfection is something he is well known for, unsurpassed by most and heard in every recording and live show. He is a multi-talented Blues/Blues Rock singer/songwriter and one of the top harmonica players in the world.
“Caught You White Handed”, the title song on Ken Rhyne's first album release was featured on the “Skin Tight Blues” compilation from Sweetgrass Records, hit #1 on the Aboriginal Charts in Canada and was nominated for a prestigous Native American Music award. www.airplaydirect.com/KenRhyne

The Ken Rhyne Band also features drummer Ned "Bad Boy" Suddreth, Ken's brother from another mother, guitarist Will Alvarez and guitarist Mr. Van Miller as himself.
Ken Rhyne has been able to pun-fully turn the table on the color coded slurs within white America, while at the same time uniting all people of spirit through his high energy harmonica and well crooned tunes. He is an ambassador to the legacy of great Blues artists, an embodiment of a people, and an era of suffering that washed up on the shores of this continent some 500 years ago with a cargo of disease and subjugation. Ken Rhyne serves to represent an even broader segment of oppression in his delivery of the Blues.He has written commercials for adult beverages and casinos, performed at the New Orleans Jazz Festival and other major arenas around the US.
