Feeling a bit camera shy


Kenny Stinson as been performing professionally in the Bluegrass Circuit for over thirty years now. At the age of 16, Kenny signed a major recording contract to sing Southern Bluegrass Gospel music with his family. After touring and recording ten projects Kenny decided to go in a different direction.

It was in 1996 that Kenny began working for Gary Brewer playing bass and singing baritone. He left Gary to play for the King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin, also playing bass and backing up the King with his baritone vocals. Jimmy stated, “ Kenny was the best baritone I have had since J. D. Crowe.” After touring with the King for a season in 1998 Kenny started playing with Gary Waldrip. Kenny likes to say “he was taken to school” and learned how to really entertain a crowd by the one master. While performing with Gary, Kenny polished his skills, and in 1999 moved on to play with a long time friend, Dayle Eskridge and became a member of “Dayle Eskridge and Changing Times,” playing his all time favorite, the mandolin. The wind of change blew through again and Kenny found himself working for James Monroe. He was James’ right hand man assisting with the business side of the Bluegrass music business as well as playing and singing. After
six years Kenny decided he needed to take a break from the music business and focus on his young family. The love of Bluegrass music was in his blood and could not lie dormant for long, so in 2008 Kenny realized it was time to fulfilling that life long dream of having his own band. Kenny stated, “I have found some of the best pickers and singers in the business. Individuals who want to play Bluegrass the way I feel it. My music is different, and they know where I’m coming from.” Kenny believes that everything has a place and God always works things out in His own timing hence the band name “KENNY STINSON & PERFECT TYM’N.”

Joining Kenny, this time on the road, is his wife of twenty plus years, Ronda Stinson. Kenny and Ronda met at a concert Kenny’s family band was hosting, and asked Ronda’s Southern Gospel group, “New Hope”, to also perform. Once Kenny and Ronda found their common ground in music, Kenny likes to say he received his life sentence, Ronda. Ronda sings lead and harmony vocals. When she sings she puts her whole heart and soul in it. Although her background was Southern Gospel you will never know she hasn’t been singing bluegrass all along. She jumps into it giving it all she’s got, and she’s got the lungs.

Kenny then knew exactly who he wanted to play banjo for him, one of his oldest and dearest friends, Dayle Eskridge. Dayle had his own award winning band for years, “Changing Times”, but he had also had taken a hiatus from music, but when approached by Kenny he was eager to get the dust of the banjo strings and burn it up once again. “Life on the road with Dayle is never a dull moment. He keeps us laughing from the time we leave until we pull back into home. He is just part of our family now. Once you get to know him you can’t help but love him.” states Ronda. Dayle really adds the drive to the music while his vocals adds the honey to the sweet three part harmony you are bound to enjoy and love.

Then Kenny and Ronda’s son, Gavin, always wanted to be just like his daddy. He started learning to play bass all on his own and now has been playing for several years. Gavin is a remarkable young man who puts on a performance all his own. He puts a whole new spin on being a bass player in a band with his dancing and head bopping style. He really keeps everyone together and provides the solid backbone to “Perfect Tym’n”.

The newest member to the band is Chuck Sharp. Chuck is a very talented young man who plays the guitar with such ease and smoothness that not many can master. He played rhythm and blues for years before also becoming a member to “Changing Times.” He performs weekly in Louisville with the Bluegrass band, “Relic.” Chuck also has a voice that is truly a blessing and amazing. His background includes lots of different styles of music giving him the talent to bring in a unique sound to “Kenny Stinson & Perfect Tym’n.

Listening to this band you will not be disappointed because they bring it to their show every time. They love what they are doing and believe in just having a good time doing what they all love, Bluegrass!
