TC Ortberg & Kenni Holmen

TC Ortberg is a Minneapolis guitarist, vocalist and composer. In addition to performing and recording CDs of solo original music, he also plays is a several Twin Cities groups, covering a wide range of events and musical styles. 

The music is a engaging mix of current and contemporary rock and jazz that fits well in a club, or for weddings and events. 

The band is scaled to match the event, so for smaller or more intimate events, he will often play in solo or duo format, or an all-acoustic show. But for larger clubs or dances and weddings, he will bring his main group TC Ortberg and Friends, which often adds a rhythm section and saxophone or a full horn section to the rich sound.

Kenni has performed with Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, T.C. Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Higgins, The Rev, Billy Graham Crusade, The Glen Miller Orchestra, Doc Severinson, Garrison Keilor, The Minnesota Orchestra and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra just to name a few.

Kenni has recorded with Janet Jackson, Rod Stewart, Prince, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Ben Sidran, Baby Face David Haas, Marty Haugen, and many others...

In addition to recording album projects and jingles, Kenni also writes, co-produces and has performed with New Age artist Lone Line since 1993.  This includes a performance at The White House in the fall of 2000.
