Profile

Chris
After finishing his University Degree in Fine Art, he started performing professionally, with Paul, in a duo called Silhouette, which took them off to Crete for 2 summer seasons at Thomson’s new resort, Sensatori. They also worked for Thomson Gold venues in Majorca. After deciding to be based in the UK for a while, they formed the band, The Keytars!
As well as rocking it up with the Keytars, Chris writes and records his own acoustic music, check out his new single, ‘Blackpool Scars’ available now on iTunes!

Paul
Paul started playing in bands at 15 years old at high school. The band was called Paradox and Chris who fronts The Keytars now was also the lead singer back then too!

After completing his degree in contemporary music in 2002 Paul & Chris decided to start a professional duo – Silhouette. They performed all round the North West in wine bars, restaurants and pubs before upping their game and taking themselves abroad with it. Next thing they knew they were working for Thomson Holidays in Crete and Majorca.

In 2014 they decided to get some roots down in Lancashire and start a party band – The Keytars, with Andy hall and the rest is history as they say 🙂
Andy
Andy is widely respected and considered to be one of the most talented guitarists in the area. Having been a finalist at the National Guitar Show @ the NEC Birmingham back in 2000 you can imagine what he’s like these days! He’s no stranger to summer season work either, playing guitar with super popular local covers band the Deadbeats he’s worked for Butlins and was a regular on the Walkabout circuit. As well as playing in covers bands Andy has also had 2 publishing deals with one of his many bands, The Sea Monkeys. He has also played support slots for rock legends Reef and Bafta award winning Emily Barker and the red clay halo. Andys musical influences range from Folk to Heavy Rock, having studied Jazz and Classical this makes him a very versatile guitarist.

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your fellow band members for performing at our Christmas Party at The Hilton Hotel, Blackpool last Friday night.

The feedback seems to be that everyone appears to have had a good time and we have received some lovely comments regarding your choice of music etc.

Once again, thank you very much and we look forward to perhaps working with you again in the future.
