Check out my chat with Wayne Kennedy!

waynek

“Wayne Kennedy has all the defiant passion and mad vocal energy you would hear with a punk band but performed by strumming the ever-loving-sh*t out of an acoustic guitar. For 11 years, Wayne Kennedy has been heavily involved within the independent music scene of Southern Ontario. From performing in punk bands, The Red District, and Television Warfare, to being a well known music promoter. Most notably, he was behind the infamous $2 Punk Shows at The Spill in Peterborough, and the Moustache Club in Oshawa, from 2012 to 2016. Wayne Kennedy started performing as an acoustic punk songwriter in 2014. He has performed at various festivals across Ontario, such as KOI Fest, Broken Arts Fest, and Peterborough L.I.V.E. Wayne has also spoken at high-schools, colleges, and universities, about songwriting, and his experiences building music scenes from the ground up and adhering strongly to a D.I.Y. work ethic.”
