ABOUT KENNY'S CASTAWAYS: Opening in 1967, Kenny's Castaways immediately became the venue of choice among up and coming acts. It all started when a little known band called the New York Dolls began to play at Kenny's and it was during one of their shows that Joey and DeeDee Ramone met. One of the most memorable moments came when Bruce Springsteen took the stage for a one week run in 1973-his NYC debut with the East Street Band.
Kenny's became the place to play presenting acts such as Deborah Harry, Aerosmith, The Marshall Tucker Band, the poetic styling of Patti Smith, The Roches, Steve Forbert, Willie Nile, Spin Doctors, and Blues Traveler. In 1980, The Smithereens were the house band, and Phish played their first ever New York City show at Kenny's in 1988.
In 2007, Kenny's Castaways celebrates 40 years of great music. Kenny's Castaways has the edge in musical ancestry and remains a major force for talented newcomers. Kenny's Castaways is located in a spacious New Orleans style showboat in the heart of historic Greenwich Village in a building dating from the early 1800's. Kenny's Castaways is the place to showcase the finest up and coming musicians and bands in the country.
