Kenny Baum’s musical career started at the age of 12 when he played bass in his bother’s band in
Russell, Kansas. At age 21 he moved to Colorado Springs where he worked in the night clubs. It was
about then that he started playing bass for the incoming Nashville Stars that appeared in the Colorado
area. In 1961 he moved to Denver, Colorado and played bass in the Club Zansabar where the cast of
“How the west was won” appeared nightly. Some of Clint Eastwood’s movies were also made here.
It was later that he worked the big club “Four Seasons” where the Nashville stars appeared nightly, a
week at a time. There he met such stars as: Stonewall Jackson, Jimmy Dickens, Kitty Wells, Ray Price,
Bobby Lord, George Hamilton, Webb Peirce, The Lovin Brohers, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Johnnie Cash,
Billy Walker, George Morgan, Faron Young and many more. Kenny left the music business in 1965 to
pursue a career in the tele-communications field and help his wife, Nancy to raise their children. It
was not until 2005 that he returned to playing music as he had retired from that business. After doing
mostly church services, he started playing around different “Jam Sessions”.
