Welcome to KeyboardKeith.com, the online home of keyboardist Keith Chelm. I am a Cleveland, Ohio based musician with over 40 years in the industry that performs in various musical projects in and around the Northeast Ohio area.

I am a member of The Recyclers and Jump the Gun playing rock, pop, blues, R&B and soul.  I am pleased to announce that in addition, I have recently joined Harvest, an electric and acoustic tribute to Neil Young. You would think that playing in three bands would keep me busy enough, but I also freelance with other area bands from time to time!

This site features information about  my bands, live gigs, keyboard collection, as well as stories of backstage brushes with celebrity and more.  If you are interested in joining my email  list, click on the contact link below left.  I invite you to come out and hear me play live at one of my gigs below.  Thanks for visiting!
