Edward Ehrbar - Monitor Engineer (Rihanna, Ray LaMontagne, KE$HA,Tom Jones)
“In my opinion I have never worked with a Drum Tech of such a diverse nature. Kenny not only can tune the drum kit to have great tones with no rings on a daily basis under all types of conditions, but he could also play the parts of the person he was teching for to the "T".His vast musical knowledge of varying genres of music, enables him to reproduce whatever drum sounds are needed for the gig.”
Danny Leake - Stevie Wonder FOH
Urban Guerrilla Engineers
"Kenny Sharretts is one of the best drum techs I have ever worked with and that is over my 40+ year career. I would go on stage and the drums would sound perfect; tuning, presence, impact...I physically relax when Kenny is on the job. I know that a major part of my job is done.”
Drew Shoals, ( Drummer) Train
"Kenny Sharretts is hands down one of the best drum techs in the business. As the drummer for Train, I need versatile drum tunings to effectively play a wide range of rock and pop tunes. Kenny's tunings are consistent, precise, musical and powerful."
