Kent "The Colonel" Knapp began playing in local bars at only 17 and took his licks, being referred to as "The Baby," "The Kid," "Jr." and so on. Over the years Milwaukee Blues legends have come to know and respect him.
The Colonel spent ten years in New Orleans playing with the best of the local scene including John Carey and Jack Cole as well as with some great national acts including Bo Diddley. The Big Easy gave him the time and space to refine his unique tone and find his powerhouse voice.
He returns home to Milwaukee, now known as "The Colonel" and is now the one throwing "the kid cracks" to the next in line.
