Kenny Margolis is best known as the keyboard/accordion player for
the popular and critically acclaimed rock band, Cracker, but
Margolis is much more than the man the New York Post called
"the master of the stomach Steinway."
From his days with Mink DeVille when that group broke out of the original CBGB scene to become a sensation in Europe, Margolis has been highly sought after as both a recording session player and a member of touring bands.
In addition to his personal projects with his zydeco rock band, Lucky 7 and Joe Hurley & Rogue's March/the Gents, Margolis has recorded and/or toured with Elliott Murphy, Camper Van Beethoven, The Smithereens, The Silos, and most recently with Willy DeVille again as well as continuing work with Cracker among others in the U.S. and Europe.
Margolis is always looking for new challenges and opportunities. He is available for hire for studio work, touring, and local New York area gigs.
