Based in Boston MA

The Charlie Keating Band celebrating their 14th year together features New England's premier slide guitar player Charlie Keating playing that Boston Boogie. The band delivers a unique combination of Blues, Boogie,Rock and Funk.  Charlie has a brilliant slide guitar style that channels Johnny Winter, Duane Allman and Elmore James. Many have compared Charlie's playing to early Stevie Ray Vaughan due to Charlie's ability to combine lead and rhythm guitar simultaneously. The band is well-known for its big sound and driving rhythm section. 

Charlie is a gifted and prolific songwriter. He is a member of SESAC. The band's CD "Slide On Over" has gotten consistent international airplay. The band is equally comfortable playing its unique versions of covers, or doing a set of originals.                      
The Charlie Keating Band represented the Massachusetts Blues Society at the 29th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN in 2013. The band has opened for Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard and Toni Lynn Washington.
