UNPLUGGED: Kenny Mann

Growing Up in Chapel Hill & Life Off the Stage

 

 

Wednesday, November 2, 2022

 

at 5pm 

 

Horace Williams House

610 East Rosemary Street, Chapel Hill, 27514
 

Kenny Mann is renowned for his ability to entertain; a consummate performer, he’s made a career out of bringing crowds of all sizes and temperaments to life through his music. With abundant charisma, humor and charm, Kenny, with his band LIQUID PLEASURE, has been a mainstay on the private event entertainment circuit for more than 50 years. His musical accolades run the gamut – inauguration performances for past Presidents Clinton and Obama, singing for crowds at more Carolina sporting events than he can count, umpteen nights at wedding receptions where he and his bandmates have inspired some of the best dance floor parties of all time, and – of course – their original “bread-and-butter” shows at fraternity houses near and far.

 

Although Mann is most often recognized in his role as LIQUID PLEASURE's Frontman, Kenny's ability to engage with an audience is hardly confined to his performances on the stage. Growing up in 1960s and 1970s Chapel Hill, Kenny has seen this town change, grow, and sometimes even remain the same, for more than six decades. With deep roots and ties to the community (his father was the cook at Chapel Hill’s famed Rathskeller restaurant from 1949 until he retired in 2003), an abiding love for all things Carolina, (but especially basketball and football), and his own lived experiences as one of the first Black students to attend Carrboro Elementary School when it integrated in the 1960s, Kenny Mann has many more stories to share.

 

Please join us on Wednesday, November 2, at the Horace Williams House to hear Kenny share his memories about life off the stage and growing up in Chapel Hill. A reception and light refreshments will follow.

 

This free event is open to the public, but space is limited.
