Kenny Grohowski

Brought up in a musical household in Miami, 24-year-old drummer, Kenny Grohowski has been performing since the age of 14. His rich musical background is demonstrated through the growing list of his collaborators, including Vernon Reid, Peter Cincotti, DJ Radar, Bobby Sanabria, Bill T. Jones, Rory Stuart, Cassandra Wilson, Richie Ray & Bobby Cruz (Kenny’s grandfather), Giovanni Hidalgo, John Benitez, Domingo Quinones, Alex de Castro, Bobby Valentin, Jose Madera, and Candido. Grohowski has been a member of bassist Lonnie Plaxico’s band since 2003 and performed in the 2007 Latin Grammy Awards with the award winning group RBD. He has appeared on several recordings, including Plaxico's hit “So Alive” [Sony, Japan].

Grohowski is also a composer and member of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s Young Composers Symposium Development Program, who premiered his string quartet in 2005. The New York Times praised the piece as “insightfully combined dark Shostakovich-like harmonies with an edgy rhythmic drive.” He is currently working on a solo CD “Second Last Minute”, which blends a multitude of influences ranging from Weather Report, Allan Holdsworth, Meshuggah, Miles Davis, Gonzalo Rubalcaba NS Brand X. Grohowski is currently endorsed by Latin Percussion and Factory Metal Percussion.
