SOLD OUT!
Kenny Maines house concert
January 21, 2012

Kenny Maines performed an awesome HubCityMusic.com house concert on Saturday January 21, 2012 to a packed, sold-out house.  Accompanied by special guest, fiddler Blake Whitmire, Kenny and Blake kept everyone spellbound throughout the evening with spectacular musicianship and vocals.  Thanks, Kenny and Blake!  Video will be posted soon, so check back for a sample of their performance.

Kenny Maines needs no introduction to Lubbock music fans.  As a member of The Maines Brothers Band, Kenny has been a singer/songwriter his entire life.  Reaching great commercial success during the 1970’s and 1980’s, The Maines Brothers Band recorded a total of eight albums, two of those for Mercury Records in Nashville, Tennessee.  The band shared the stage with Alabama, Reba McIntire, Barbara Mandrell, Ronnie Milsap, Dr. Hook, The Judds, and many other artists of the era.

Known as a consummate musician, as well as music fan and a bit of a music historian, Kenny hosted the PBS series “StoryTellers & MusicMakers” on KTXT-TV.  (http://storytellersandmusicmakers.com/home.html)  In two seasons, Kenny interviewed a number of musicians whose careers were shaped by West Texas, and whose careers have shaped the West Texas music scene.  Of course, few of these have had more influence than Kenny Maines himself, both in West Texas, as well as on a national and international level.

But more than anything else, Kenny loves connecting with an audience.  As he said in his own words:  “If Ed McMahan knocked on my door tomorrow and gave me a check for ten million dollars, I swear it wouldn’t change me at all.  I would continue to do the same thing I am doing now.  I would just have a lot more fun doing it!  I can want for money, love and stuff.  But, one thing I truly need is to play my music, look out into the crowd and notice someone is listening.”
