Instruments: Guitar
Place of Birth: Mobile, Alabama

From Alabama's first Capitol, to the entertainment capitol of the world, Las Vegas, Ken Bozeman's flying fingers have had audiences ooh-ing and ahh-ing, amazed and spellbound since he took up the guitar at age 9.

By the time Ken was in his early teens he was performing weekly as a member of "Vernon Bozeman and the Happy Valley Gang" (a family gospel group) on a Jackson Radio Station, WABB.

Soon his pro career began in and around Mobile, Alabama, where he crossed paths with such talent as Ray Sawyer. His interests widened to include country, rhythm and blues, and even jazz. He led the first country band to appear regularly on New Orleans Bourbon Street, working at Pete Fountain's Showplace.

Ken's love of country music led him beyond Bourbon Street to working on the road with such stars as Johnny Carver, Billy "Crash" Craddock, Tanya Tucker, Little Jimmy Dickens, Del Reeves and others. His career also led him to play the rodeo circuit with James Drury and Doug McClure of T.V.'s "The Virginian", two or three stints on the Grand Old' Opry and his own recordings.

He is a six-time winner of the Instrumentalist of the Year Award in the Florida Country Music Association and five-time winner of the Association's Entertainer of the Year Award. Ken has been inducted into the Florida Country Music Hall of Fame as well as the Mobile County Country Music Hall of Fame.
