August 19 | Ron Keel Band

Sponsored by Margaritaville Margaritas

Ron Keel’s 35 year career in the entertainment business has taken him from the concrete jungle of arena rock to the dirt roads of country music… As the Badlands House Band, this group saw action in nine states in 2016, including: headline slots at major fairs and festivals – bike events such as the Sturgis Rally and a headline show at the Lone Star Rally in Galveston –

The lineup remains unchanged, with Keel front and center, lead guitarist DC Cothern, bassist El Diablo, Dakota Scott on keyboards and The Rev on drums. “These guys have been through hell and back with me,” Keel admits, “and there’s a special bond and chemistry that just doesn’t come along very often. Putting my name on it ratchets up the pressure and establishes us as a national act, which will give us more opportunities to get out there and play for more people.” The musical style and direction remains the same – RKB will continue to deliver the Right To Rock, the Badlands House Band classics, the Keel hits, and songs that celebrate the hard rockin’/hard workin’/hard partyin’ American way of life. While adding new material to the show, the foundation upon which the band was built remains the same: classic anthems that everyone knows and sings along with, music that reflects the hard rockin’/hard workin’/partyin’ way of life and the American values the band holds sacred. The Keel MTV/VH1 hits like “The Right To Rock,” “Tears Of Fire,” “Because The Night,” “Somebody’s Waiting” and “Rock & Roll Outlaw” are in the mix as well as songs from Ron Keel’s acclaimed solo album “Metal Cowboy” and other projects. The production mixes theatrics (playing upon the group’s “Apocalyptic Cowboy” image) with the band’s natural down-to-earth attitude – larger-than-life characters who could just be the guys next door after Armageddon threatens to wipe out rock ‘n roll…
