“I’m Bob Keeton, the piano/keyboard player in Hitchcock Railway.
I’ve been playing professionally around the Wellington region for 25 years as a solo jazz pianist.
Music has become the key point in my life, but then I guess it always has been.
I have performed as a member of rock bands, cabaret acts, show orchestras, various jazz and fusion combos, and done recording session work.
I’ve also performed as a singer/songwriter and have a degree in musical composition from Victoria University.
I’ve been with “Hitchcock Railway” for over 15 years and enjoy the challenge it presents, I love working with the other members of the band who have all become good friends.”
