The Keith Walsh Experience is an eighteen-piece one-man band who performs deeply rhythmic alternative drum- and-guitar-driven rock 'n' roll. It's ear candy with an edge and a great beat! Walsh sings and performs his huge catalogue of original compositions, and covers ranging from early and psychedelic rock 'n' roll to standards. His baritone vocal style expands upon the Sinatra-Morrison-Iggy-Beefheart school of crooning.
Price Range: $200 and up
Gig Length: 45 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
What you get with the KWE is unique rock 'n' roll music that is generally at a reasonable volume (it's not meant to be background music), with "clean" lyrics. The kit is unique, as are Walsh's synchronic ergonomic actions, so there's a lot to look at!
Los Angeles visual artist and musician Keith Walsh began his one-man band adventure, The Keith Walsh Experience (KWE) in 1995. He is a self-taught musician, composer and lyricist, and a long time enthusiast of rock ‘n’ roll, punk, jazz, avant-garde and world music. He has released eleven albums of music since 1995. His kind of music taps into the direct DIY spirit of rock and roll. The KWE is included in Chicago’s Roctober Magazine One Man Band Encyclopedia, published in 2002. For almost twenty years he has performed live at numerous Los Angeles area nightclubs, universities, and art galleries. KWE music has been aired on US college radio stations from coast-to-coast, and is collected by listeners from Denmark to Australia. KWE’s Nebula X, Motorik, and Back to the Pyramids albums are available on CD Baby, I-Tunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and other sites.
