About

It's not just the sound. It's two people from opposite sides of the world connecting like long-lost brothers. Together they explode with a unique combination of intimacy and intensity that reaches right up into any crowd. One lives in the west and one lives in the east, they meet for one reason.

TO ROCK AND ROLL AROUND THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!

 

ぶっ弾き!ぶっ叫び!ぶっ叩く!

共鳴、共振エネルギー大爆発!!!!!

世界中をロックして回りに回る。

そんなライブ三昧生活から見えて来る歌、曲、熱を大切に、

生涯ロックバンドとして突っ走り切る、一つの新たな"カタチ"を表現したく思う。

Bio

Kenichi (Ken) Minami and Adam Aron Amram -- the Brooklyn and Tokyo based duo known as Ken South Rock -- have thrilled audiences around the world with their unique blend of Japanese and American rock and roll.

 

Adam and Ken began their first tour of Japan in March 2011, just three days before the devastating Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. They continued the tour despite the insistence of family and friends that they cut it short, their anthems of unity through rock and roll providing much needed inspiration and a musical escape for fans throughout Japan. Adam and Ken continued with a US tour and released their first LP -- Volcano -- with a 2012 tour of Japan and Taiwan. 2013 sees the brothers about to launch another world tour which will include major festival appearances in Taiwan, a trip to Hong Kong, and US performances with Japanther and Unstoppable Death Machines among others.

 

Ken South Rock performances -- equal parts intimate and intense -- are not to be missed. Clad in a red kimono, Ken commands the attention of the audience as he wields his electrified Hummingbird guitar as if a samurai sword. Adam, generally shirtless, pounds the drums to within inches of failure. Adam and Ken like to say they play as they did when they were children, and every bit of that energy is felt in their thrilled audiences. One fan, writing of a Ken South Rock performance in Taiwan, said he lost the ability to form complete sentences and could only muster this: “Wow. Energy. Cat. Samurai. Growling. Feedback. Dynamic. Fuzz. Urgent. Powerful. Raw. Life. Rock.” Powerful, raw, life, rock. This is Ken South Rock.
