New England's Premier slideman
Charlie Keating Band with the Rhythm Regulators
Charlie Keating Band with the Rhythm Regulators are celebrating 14 years together featuring New England's premier slide guitar player Charlie Keating playing that “Boston Boogie.” The band delivers a unique combination of blues and boogie.

“Charlie could be compared to Clapton and Buddy Guy… yes he's that good" - Craig Venske/Concert Photos Magazine

Members are Charlie Keating on guitar and vocals with the Rhythm Regulators Lenny Turnquist on bass and K9 Jones on drums. Charlie has a brilliant slide guitar style that channels Johnny Winter, Duane Allman and Elmore James. Many have compared his playing to early Stevie Ray Vaughan due to his ability to combine lead and rhythm guitar simultaneously. The band is well-known for its big sound and driving rhythm section and are equally comfortable playing unique versions of covers or originals.

"Keating is a wild man on the guitar and his mighty rhythm section know how to keep him afloat and anchored at once" - Bill Copeland/Bill Copeland News

Their most recent single, “The End Of Us" written by Keating/Turnquist, is a slow soulful ballad shifting gears from their usual rocking blues-infused sound, and showcases their versatility.

Charlie is a gifted, prolific songwriter and a member of SESAC. The band's CD, Slide On Over, has gotten consistent international airplay. The Charlie Keating Band represented the Massachusetts Blues Society at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. They’ve opened for Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard and Toni Lynn Washington.

“This is a boogie band... and these cats can play” - Aj Watchtell/The Noise
