The opening act
About Ken Post
Ken has played the streets and squares since 1989. He recorded most of his work while being on the road. He started out by playing covers, but this gradually changed into playing his own compositions, while whirling around and jumping all over the squares of Europe.
During this time he recorded 'Atomic Bomb Babies, and 'On The
Road'(later released as 'Freeway')
He did not go unnoticed in the media as well because of his exuberant attitude, an attitude not much found in streetmusicians, which mostly play on save and try to please the crowd, while Ken mainly tries to amuse. He appeared regularly in the newspapers, including 'The Gazette van Antwerpen'and the local Luzern papers.
He also was able to open up as solo act on some of the bigger stages in Belgium, like the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels which is among the most prestigious in Belgium.
Ken Post likes to be seen as a modern protest singer, and joins protest marches like the 2002 Marijuana Liberation day Parade in lower Manhattan and the 2002 anti-globalisation march in NYC.
In 1996 he started to integrate his songs
in a play named Tightrope, and organised open readings in Antwerp, Belgium,
from which a group of performers were gathered.
In 2002 he followed the Rolling Stones tour in Europe, and played for the people lining up to get into the stadia. He filmed the tour and made a rockumentary of this which he tries to sell to TV stations.
