Kenny began playing drums in college after playing trumpet all through elementary and high school. Early drumming influences included most of the usual suspects, especially John Bonham, Neil Peart and Nicko McBrain. Self-taught, he strapped on the headphones and tried to replicate everything he heard on great albums such as "Houses of the Holy" and "Exit Stage Left", to name a few. His first band experience was by accident with an oldies/motown band in the early 1990s, which is the band that gave him his first true gigging experience. After career and family took center stage, Kenny gave up drumming all together for about ten years, even selling all his gear, until the drumming bug bit again in the Fall of 2005. Since then, Kenny has remained active with various bands and projects in the area. Although his more modern influences include a lot of progressive and metal (such as Tool and Porcupine Tree), he enjoys the "old school" vibe of the bands of the 1960s and 70s, before music had become digitized, controlled and fabricated by technology.
During the summer of 2015, dynamic, killer drummer, Kenny Finger joined Xyra and company, creating a solid backbone for the current lineup, Flight of Odin. Unfortunately, after completing their debut recording, Kenny drifted away from the band. Happily, Kenny returned to us, after a respite, in March of 2019.
