Kenny and the Kasuals at Allen Public Library

July 26

7:30 pm

Are you ready to rock to the great sounds of one of Dallas’s early rock bands?

During the 1960s, Kenny and Kasuals released their singles, all of which became psychedelic classics and are now highly collectible.  At the famed Studio Club in Dallas, Kenny and the Kasuals opened for Sonny and Cher, the Rolling Stones, and the Beach Boys.

In New York City, Kenny and the Kasuals were designated to share the bill with the Beatles at Shea Stadium. In a last-minute decision, United Artists banned the group when they refused to give the label exclusive publishing rights.

Band leader Kenny Daniel was later drafted into the Army.   After returning from his deployment in Germany, Kenny and the Kasuals adopted a punk rock style.   The new band took advantage of the revival of their music by touring as openers for such acts as Pattie Smith, Iggy Pop and The Boomtown Rats.
