Not Your Typical Musicians!

String Bean traverses the Americana/Bluegrass musical map with infectious melodies and unstoppable rhythms. They sooth the spirit, rock the house and melt into a seductive, Americana groove ranging in style from bluegrass, folk, country blues, alternative country, to neo-traditional and roots rock. They play known classics with original spice, as well as originals that will get you tapping your feet and singing along.

Ask Kenny Selcer why it is that he plays music, and he's likely to respond as though he was on stage. Without missing a beat, he becomes electric.

He speaks of defying categories, breaking down barriers and fusing idioms and cultures. This musical project, String Bean, was started in 2006 with Rich Caloggero, one of his long-time musical partners. They wanted a group that would expand into the acoustic Americana/Bluegrass world. They eventually hooked up with some of the areas best musicians. The recording band brought a wealth of talent and experience drawing on all kinds of roots: from bluegrass to Cajun to blues to folk all blending into their own brand of Americana/Bluegrass a band called String Bean. In live performance, Kenny and Rich always play with some of the area's top musicians.
