A B O U T
Born in Denver, Colorado, but raised as a native of Orlando, Florida, Bobby Keller has been making his way on to the music scene with his unique style of guitar playing since 2009, and is considered one of the top guitar players in Florida and the south east. Inspired by guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix and Dimebag Darrell, Bobby combined both untamed speed and euphonic rhythm into his technique to create a truly individual sound.
Joining up with Meka Nism in 2010, they have toured together nationally along with renowned artists such as: Evanescence, Hellyeah, Mastodon, Gojira, Nonpoint, Jonathan Davis, Stabbing Westward, as well as Otep, Avatar and Trapt. Over the years Bobby has been endorsed with: ESP Guitars, EMG Pickups, Richter Straps, Fortin Amps, SIT Strings, WB Gear, Neural DSP, Graph Tech Guitar Labs, FU-Tone, Klotz Cables and JH Audio. In 2016, Bobby was also able to star in the Theater Works Production of Rock of Ages as the lead guitar player for the “house band” of the Bourbon Room in Hollywood, California.
In 2019, Bobby Keller decided to start a Solo Project with Ben Johnson, a talented drummer and engineer as well as owner of Reverse 13 Studios in Orlando, Florida. Together, they have been working on their first single titled, “Reign in Fire”, which will be mastered by Gene Freeman (professionally known as Machine), an American music producer and engineer who has worked with bands including Lamb of God, Clutch, As It Is, Crobot and Suicide Silence.
Today, Bobby is still continuing to make music on his eye-catching glow-in-the-dark ESP guitars and has also gone into starting his own businesses.
