Kenny Sara & The Sounds of New Orleans Appearing Live

Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, located in Downtown Disney at Disneyland features regular live entertainment every evening. For the next three weeks, former New Orleans resident Kenny Sara will be entertaining the weekend masses with his band, The Sounds of New Orleans. He has been regularly playing at the Jazz Kitchen since December 2002, after a stint in New York appearing in the play One Mo' Time, among other accomplishments.

According to Sara's website, he began playing professionally at the age of 14 with "seasoned musicians" and has played with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Bo Diddley, James Earl Jones and Woody Allen. A multi-talented performer, he plays the drums, sings and acts. He has also spent time backstage acting as an assistant conductor and producing.

CindyH on Disney's DISBoards recalls her experience at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen when responding to the question posed by Ember, "Any romantic ideas for Disneyland?"
Kenny Sara and his band were playing, and they are really good! The night that we were there, someone put in a request (there's a tip bowl in front of the band) and they announced that someone had just proposed and she said yes! They played We're Getting Married or some other song, really fun and nice.
A review from Still Fumin' News gave Kenny Sara and The Sounds of New Orleans high marks along with Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen itself. The reviewer found it an excellent, all-around experience worth checking out.
