Musician | Multi-Instrumentalist | Songwriter

Ken Hebert

Based in Western Massachusetts, I've been playing across the country for decades, exploring a myriad of genres and subjects. As an acoustic guitarist, saxophonist, keyboardist, and singer-songwriter, I am a versatile composer and artist.

I aim to incorporate funk, techno, and soul elements into the majority of my musical creations, drawing heavily from Earth, Wind, and Fire as well as other notable greats.

Beyond my musical pursuits, I have a joint interest in acting and theater. I'm no stranger to the stage, composing for local theater productions in the Pioneer Valley. I've had the privilege of performing in large regional productions of well-known plays like Guys and Dolls and Annie.


A lifetime of professional performance reaching back to the 70s

Funk, Techno, and Positivity2000s

After decades of cynicism, Ken has focused on pushing to write feel-good, narrative driven funk and techno songs. He is now playing with a local cover group, Off The Record, and has recently begun pursuing original pieces.

The Stop and Start of New ProjectsLate 80s

Ken relocated to the West Coast where he worked alongside Dick Peterson of The Kingsmen, after which he returned to the Pioneer Valley. He later settled down to start a family.

Elliot Finesse

Early 80s

Boston-based and heavy into rock and roll, he toured with Elliot Finesse and opened for Jose Feliciano, The Guess Who, and James Montgomery. While playing these shows, he met the woman who would become his future wife while acting together in the musical Guys and Dolls.

Disco Baby


Disco flooded the music scene and Ken's voice held all the masterful highs reminiscent of the Beegees as he played through New England and up into Canada.

Daybreak, Chicago Funk Roots

60s and 70s

Ken started his music career as a guitarist and sax player in the 9-piece Chicago-style funk band, Daybreak, that heavily featured horn covers, choreography and visual effects. With a Black lead singer, they had to negotiate clubs while protecting each other in the racially-charged time.
