Guitarist Brian Kahanek live in action!

Taken from Brian Kahanek’s website: Born in Columbus Ohio, Brian Kahanek grew up nearby on an 80-acre farm full of corn and alfalfa fields where his family bred beautiful Arabian horses and sold the yearly harvest. Helping his dad work the farm, feeding the horses and listening to music of all genres was part of daily life. When Brian was 10, the Kahanek clan moved to his father’s birthplace of San Antonio, a hotbed of Texas style rhythm and blues. It was here that a family friend purchased Brian his first guitar, a $100 acoustic from Ruston’s Western Wear store on the outskirts of the city. Even with strings so high that you could shoot arrows with them, he dove into the musical offerings of Jim Croce, Simon and Garfunkle, Crosby Stills and Nash, and a myriad of other 60’s and 70’s singer-songwriters. He was hooked, learning to strum and fingerpick right off the bat, and never looked back.
