Ken-Mill Cafe

The Ken-Mill was so named because it was at the corner of Kenton and McMillan Streets in Cincinnati. In the early and mid 1960s, it had bluegrass six nights a week with Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys, which in 1963 included Earl on mandolin, Jim McCall on guitar, Vernon (“Boatwhistle”) McIntyre on bass, and Vernon (“Junior”) McIntyre Jr. on banjo. Other band members at various times included Walter Hensley, Jim Hensley, Frankie Short, Josh Graves, and Benny Birchfield.
