Acoustic Addiction
Acoustic Addiction
Dave and Keith traveled throughout the United States and Canada in a full-time band performing for crowds as big as 11,000 while sharing stages with major recording artists. In 2006 they started out down a new path and formed a two piece group called Acoustic Addiction. Through the years they've cataloged a mix of covers that you know and will sing along with. They are also songwriters and mix in a little of their own impressive original music. Their tight harmony and musicianship will make you believe there must be more than these two in AA. That's what you get from years of entertaining together. Come out and see for yourself how this two piece group can put on a show that rivals full band groups.
