Biography: Key West Band
Key West is the band to have for a high-energy night of Caribbean influenced music. Voted the number one party band by the Roanoke Times and Best Local Band of 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 & 2005 by the Roanoker Magazine, Key West has opened for many national acts including The Tams, The Drifters, The Coasters, The Kingsmen, Jan and Dean, The Box Tops and Cravin’ Melon.
With a large supply of Jimmy Buffett songs as well as Reggae’, Creole, Latin and original songs this band can turn the darkest of winter nights into an island party. Their music crosses so many boundaries they have become a staple in the corporate, festival and college markets. The typical Key West audience is a multi-generational, energetic, loyal group of followers known as Island Trash.
Not a bunch of city-bound Caribbean wannabees, the members of Key West are sailors and divers who have lived and worked in Florida and the Caribbean. When the band finally takes a vacation you can expect to find them in the islands or living on a sailboat not only relaxing, but doing research for new band material.
The bands’ 1995 CD, “Postcards From Paradise” continues to sell well due to the timelessness of its music and has gone international with distribution in the Caribbean. Their current release, “Island Trash...Looking For A Party” has out sold the first disc, produced a #1 song in California and is currently in rotation on Sirius satellite radio.
