The Keystones are an alternative bar-rock band based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Born in Waukesha, the very same place as the electric guitar, the members of this unique, out-of-the-box rock group hail from the golden era of grunge guitar, one that’s full of heavy tones and hypnotizing garage beats that dance between Brit-indie-rock and new-age modern rock sounds. They’re a far cry from the glitzy, indie pop groups that seem to fall out of the woodwork these days, and they’re okay with that. Why? Because their goal isn’t to find the glossiest sound. In fact, it’s much bigger than that: they want to make the town that created the guitar as we know it proud.



Got a stage, bar or music festival in need of a top-notch lineup? Contact us at: thekeystonesbandwi@gmail.com. We’re responsive, professional, and most of all, we love to kick back and have a good time — and that’s why our fan base loves our shows. We know you will, too.



The Keystones recently released their sixth single, "Blackheart", produced by sound engineer Derek Moffat, in May 2020. It can be found anywhere music is sold, streamed, or pirated (but we'd appreciate it if you didn't do that). The Keystones are currently auditioning a new vocalist after the departure of their lead guitarist/vocalist, Jack Sherman. They are writing their reformative EP, and will be releasing a mix of heavy rock/alternative in later 2020/21. In the meantime, check out our current releases:
