The Dave Keller Band's Summer is Heating Up With Several Live Shows, New CD and "Release Party" Dates

MONTPELIER, VERMONT - Vermont's resident rhythm-and-bluesman guitarist, Dave Keller, is a busy man these days, with his latest CD on the cusp of being released and a slew of summer shows throughout New England, as well as a string of CD "Release Party" dates slated throughout September. Heck, there's even a newly-designed t-shirt ready to offer the fans. (pictured) When Standing Room Only last checked in with Dave, he had just launched his Kickstarter campaign as to help raise funds for his forthcoming new CD release... the follow up to his critically acclaimed Soul Changes CD released in 2014.

Dave brought his touring band into the studio for this go-around, which makes perfect sense in that these four cats have been on the road playing together for a decade strong, so who would understand more about what Dave is trying to capture with his music than Ira Friedman on keys, Brett Hoffman on drums and Gary Lotspeich on bass... that would no one.

In the meantime, The Dave Keller Band also has a bunch of shows booked throughout the summer and into the fall, leading up to the release of the new CD:

* Sat. August 6 at Spruce Peak in Stowe, VT. noon to 4 p.m. (under the awning of the new pavilion)
