2020 Dates

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ //////\\\\\ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Corona Virus Update ALL 2020 gigs now Cancelled (04/07/20)

Sadly, due to the ongoing uncertainty with when and how live music can return, we have taken the difficult decision to write off this year for ‘The Keith Howe Band’ and therefore we are cancelling all of our remaining shows (that haven’t already been pulled) for 2020.

Our thought go out to all the wonderful venues and performers that are also trying to survive through these strange times.

Hopefully (all things being equal) we might be able to organise dates some time in the future ?

This has been a hard decision to make but as three of us have ‘shielding’ health issues, we would obviously not want to put anyone at risk (so far we haven’t even been able to schedule rehearsals) and with the current situation so volatile, it seems the best decision to make.

I hope you all continue to keep safe during these strange times and hope to see you all on the other side.
