Like Father, Like Son: Greg Kihn / Ry Kihn

Veteran Rocker Greg Kihn recently passed along this note: "My son Ry grew up listening to the Greg Kihn Band and when he stepped into the lead guitarist role it was no sweat. He had some pretty big shoes to fill (Joe Satriani, Jimmy Lyon, Gregg Douglass, Dave Carpenter) but he never blinked. The boy can flat out play! I can't tell you how proud I was of him out there, on stage at the recent Kihncert."

The second generation of Kihns are making their mark in the Bay Area music scene. Ry Kihn, whose father is Greg Kihn of the Greg Kihn Band, is an accomplished professional guitar player. Playing guitar since he was 12 years old, he's now lead guitar for the Greg Kihn Band, and also the front man for Big Fun USA, a local San Francisco Bay area band.

A classically-trained Jazz guitarist, Ry has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience on the guitar.
While still in high school, Ry studied privately with Joe Satriani, and went on to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, eventually graduating from California Institute of the Arts with a BFA in Jazz Guitar Studies. He has grown to adopt a wide range of styles including rock, blues, jazz, classical, country, and metal.

Ry has performed with major artists including Eddie Money, Joe Satriani, Billy Idol, Greg Kihn, Mike Reno, Jimi Jameson, and Bobby Kimball. He is also a regular guest on his dad’s KFOX morning radio show, where he often jams with other musical guests.


When not playing and touring, Ry is a staff guitar instructor at Showcase Music Institute in San Jose, CA. Click to check out the photos on Facebook of Ry and Greg Kihn playing together with the Greg Kihn Band at the 2010 Kihncert at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.
