Kenneth Thomas "Kenney" Jones (born 16 September 1948, Stepney, East London) is a veteran English rock drummer best known for his work in Small Faces, Faces, and The Who.

Kenney Jones was one of the founding members of the English pop-rock-R&B/mod band Small Faces. Active from 1965 to 1969, Small Faces were part of the mod revolution of the 1960s. Their hits included "All or Nothing", "Sha-La-La-La-Lee", "Itchycoo Park" and "Tin Soldier". Small Faces have been cited as a major influence on musicians for the past 35 years, including Paul Weller formerly of The Style Council and the The Jam also Noel Gallagher of Oasis.

In 2007, the Small Faces were honoured by Westminster Council with a plaque placed at what was Don Arden's offices in Carnaby Street, the band's "spiritual home". Kenney Jones unveiled the commemorative plaque. In a BBC interview an emotional Jones said: "To honour the Small Faces after all these years is a terrific achievement. I only wish that Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane and the late Don Arden were here to enjoy this moment with me".
