About Matt Keen

“My name is Matt Keen and I am a singer/songwriter from Chicago, IL. I would fancy myself an eclectic with regards to my music and can’t specifically label myself into any particular genre. However, I play rock, folk, gospel, R&B, and the blues. I love to stay limitless regarding the possibilities of tunes I can share when playing in a live setting. I’ve had a number of great experiences at a wide variety of venues throughout my career. I have played at The Chicago Theatre, The Sandpoint Idaho Music Festival, The Marblehead, MA Music Festival, The Bluebird at Indiana University, and a wide array of clubs and bars all around the Midwest. A number of venues a bit less prestigious but none the less great! I am all about big crowds but am still enamored with intimate audiences, and play at listening room venues as well, such as, Di Luna’s, Sandpoint, ID. I can connect with 50 people just as seamlessly as I can with 5,000 and it is a serious strong suite of mine which keeps my fans intrigued and my non-fans wanting to become ones! If I am traveling outside of Chicago and it is not within driving distance (250 miles or less) I will need someone working sound at the venue to ensure the quality of the performance from a listening perspective. Within driving distance if necessary I possess a quaint and effective SHS Audio P.A that will comfortably power a performance for around 400 people. I currently don’t have any sort of light show but can stimulate a crowd regardless of antics and it’s something I pride myself on. Dependent on the venues location I can ensure a varied range of attendance. However, I always expect that if I make the venue money I am making myself money and so my drive to bring an audience is always high.”

50 Years of Gino’s East

This year, The Original Gino’s East of Chicago celebrates the 50th anniversary as a family brand serving their famous deep dish pizza across 10 Chicagoland locations, in Wisconsin, Texas and Mexico City, and with shipping nationwide!
