Steve Keenan is a Singer Songwriter/ Multi instrumentalist from Lethbridge Alberta Canada. He first picked up the fiddle at age 5 after watching his grandfather play, and this is where the musical journey began…
After playing his first professional gig at age 11, Steve started branching toward the guitar after listening to Chuck Berry and Beatles Records from his Dad’s collection. In 2004 after performing in several bands, Steve embarked on a Canadian tour which covered 5 provinces and over 120 shows. He has earned numerous recording credits as a session musician on various projects and in 2009, released an EP with the band Fat Baby Jake. After performing as a solo and session musician for a few years, Steve reunited with founding Fat Baby Jake members David Popovitch and Darwin Romanchuk. Dave’s solid bass lines mixed with Darwin’s tight grooves have always laid a solid foundation to the band’s evolving sound.
Most recently the band recruited guitar player Pete Watson. Pete’s expertise and musical sensibility has brought a whole new dimension to the band’s sound. Drawing from influences such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Clapton and Johnny Cash, the bands wide repertoire also includes several originals written by Keenan which range from blues to rock to southern country. The Steve Keenan Band continues to captivate their audiences with each performance.
This is a blues rock band you definitely don’t want to miss!
