I can heartily recommend Ken O'Malley both as a talented and entertaining performer as well as a consummate professional who works cooperatively with management and others to present a high quality show.

Ken is a good looking guy with real Irish heritage, having been born in Ireland, and an excellent knowledge of the history of that country, right up to the present. He is well educated in languages and music. He brings Ireland to life. Ken will inspire anyone listening to him to play the instruments he brings along.

He is extremely professional, having been in the business of entertainment for over 30 years. He is warm, friendly, and easy to get along with and realistic about playing and singing anywhere. I have him at my venue often. My patrons pay a ticket price to come in and watch and listen. Everyone leaves happy.

I have been presenting "real" music of quality for 50 years. I owned and operated The Ice House for 20 years discovering multitudes of future stars, and making dozens of acts famous. I am well known for having good taste in my selection of entertainment. I, also, insist on an entertaining show and performers who exhibit a gracious attitude toward my staff and audience. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Yours,
