“We feel the Keatings are a perfect fit for our theater and we know that our guests will fall in love with not only their beautiful voices, but with them as well. They are friendly, genuine and extremely gifted performers. When we first heard them sing, they knocked our socks off! Their live band of musicians are top pros in the business, and the back up singers are stand outs themselves. It’s going to be an entertaining show that audiences of any age will enjoy. We are honored to have them appearing at our venue in 2010.”

Audiences are captivated by the unique combination of powerful voices from a father and his 18 year old son. Recently, The Keatings performed on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon and in February, 2010 they will be making their debut appearance on a world-class Crystal Cruise Lines ship.
