Performing with many different professional ensembles in the

Santa Barbara area

and throughout

Southern California,

For any occasion from informal house parties to large venue concerts,

Kim is connected with a group that fits perfectly.

Variety is the Spice of Life...

• For over 35 years Kim has delighted in performing with his wife and music partner, stellar Jazz pianist and internationally published author Debbie Denke

• For over 30 years he has directed, arranged for, and sung with a favorite

SB area holiday caroling group, The Santa Barbara Noël Carolers

• For several years now, he's been having a ball with the exciting Gypsy Jazz band The Idiomatiques, a rollicking good time sure to give you your happy fix!

The Santa Barbara Noël

Carolers have been a

holiday mainstay in SB 

for a quarter century.

Anyone looking to bring

the joy of the season to 

their event need look no

further! In a variety of 

costumes, the quartet

makes any party a fun-

filled festive occasion.

In the style of Django Reinhardt, the legendary Belgian guitar innovator from the first half of the 20th century, Kim's band THE IDIOMATIQUES plays Gypsy Jazz and Hot Swing, both traditonal and 

modern. Please enjoy this finely captured video of our original composition

"Sado Manouche"
