BAD KEYS OF THE MOUNTAIN
A Quick Look
Formed in December 2017, Bad Keys of the Mountain is a Rock and Roll band out of Charleston, WV. Started by David McGuire (Songwriter/Singer/ and Guitarist) and Joey Lafferty (Bass Guitar). Shortly after, they were joined by two seasoned veterans of the Charleston music scene, Chris Hudson (Drums and Percussion) and multi instrumentalist Josh Cannon (Guitar, Mandolin, and Vocals).
Together, they create a diverse palette of sounds which range from driving Rock and Roll to acoustic textures filled with light and shade. Influences range from the raw energy of the Blues and Rock to the sophistication of Jazz and the sensitivity of Singer/Songwriter. This, combined with the honed artistry these players display, following melody and harmonies into new improvisational territory, makes this a band you NEED to see and hear.
