Keelin's musical awakening occurred at the time of the British invasion of 1964 and his repertoire is influenced by that as well as the rock, country, folk, blues, Americana and pop that followed.
Currently performing as a solo act, he has also performed as one-half of a duo, and in top 40, blues and classic rock bands, making him a well-rounded, seasoned musician who brings a degree of professionalism and energy to his performances that captures and holds the attention of audiences. Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar he performs a wide variety of popular tunes, from the early 50s to the 2000s, all chosen to entertain coffee house and restaurant/bar/pub audiences. His repertoire spans the musical landscape from the Allman Brothers to John Prine; the Beatles to Brooks & Dunn; Springsteen to Hank Williams and Zak Brown, and it covers a lot of ground in between. He's played clubs, coffee houses, bars, restaurants, libraries, picnics, private events, showcases, senior living facilities and more open mics then he'll ever remember.
