Ken’s live performances showcase his outstanding musicianship on guitars and mandolin, award winning original songs and his powerful vocals, called "...a cross between Pete Seeger and Tony Bennett on 11!" Whether leading his own group, solo or collaborating with peers at blues, folk, children’s festivals and concerts of all sizes, his “...deep knowledge and infectious passion” guarantee good times for all. As a producer of over 140 recording projects, Ken’s productions have garnered 10 Canadian Gold and Platinum records, 4 American Gold records, 22 Juno and 2 Grammy nominations, and sold over 8 million copies.


Whiteley Wednesdays @ the Jazz Bistro...

Our Whiteley gig at the Jazz Bistro will unfortunately NOT be happening in May, because of scheduling issues. Our final show of these series will be happening Tuesday, June 18. Note this is re-scheduled date and is a Tuesday!  Featuring Chris, Jesse and Ken Whiteley we'll be playing and singing a unique assortment of jazz standards and occasional originals all tinged with swinging blue notes.  Our first night in April by this Whiteley trio, brothers Chris (trumpet, guitar, vocals) and Ken (guitar, vocals) with Chris’ son, Jesse (piano, vocals) went great and it's only getting better from here.   The Jazz Bistro is located at 251 Victoria St. and the shows start at 8 p.m.

Meanwhile I'm busy in the recording studio with my own new songs and new recordings by Njacko Backo, Russell Sprout, Jesse Palidofsky among others.
