The Kecks have rapidly established a reputation as an enigmatic must-see live act after only completing their lineup in October 2018 after a chance encounter on board a Berlin bound Flixbus to see The Growlers.
After throwing raucous bunker parties in their rehearsal room and several other Guerilla gigs, a buzz is beginning to bubble - culminating in two consecutive sold out shows at the renowned Astra Stube and European dates already in the calendar for 2019.
Drawing from a wide range of influences, not least the Australian, French, Austrian/German, and British nationality of its members - The Kecks offer a fresh and exciting take on guitar music. Delivering sophisticated yet spikey tunes that are expansive in ambition but remain authentic and raw by nature.
