Nominated for: BEST Local Bands
Ladies and gentlemen, this band is the real deal. Forget about the bells and whistles and laser light shows and Britney Spears with a cowboy hat performers; this is a true country connoisseur's band (though we'd prefer to just say that Bryan Keith Band is pure country. Plain and simple.) Here's a little history: Bryan Keith has always been fascinated by country music, and his passion for the genre shows in every song he performs. Bryan’s family contains a wealth of musical influence, and his grandfather had even played with legends like Ernest Tubbs, Gene Autry, and of course, Merle Travis. When Bryan was eight years old, his grandparents surprised him with a Christmas gift which would set the course of his future as a musician: his very first guitar! From that point, Bryan learned his first chords and lead licks from his grandfather, and then on his own worked like a mad scientist to master the guitar and develop his own unique style. Through years of developing as a guitarist, as well as singing country with a uniquely honky-tonk inspired sound, Bryan now performs regularly on the West Coast, covering everything from classic 70s rock to top 40 country in addition to recording original songs which will be available here before anywhere else! The Bryan Keith Band is about providing great country music to all venues, large or small, and creating an atmosphere in which people of all ages can have a good time. Bryan Keith is a no bull musician who doesn't find himself imitating the pop sensation du-jour - country music is all about real feelings, real music, and remaining true to your guitar and what's in your heart. That's pure country, and that's Bryan Keith Band.
