KEITH HUBBARD - Lead Guitar & Vocals

Keith began his career in various Merseyside bands during the mid 60s, before becoming a member of the original cast of the rock musical HAIR.

After 15 months of touring, Keith left the show to pursue his long held ambition of performing with his own rock band.

Before joining the chart topping group CHICORY TIP Keith formed CALIBAN, who were regulars at Liverpool's legendary CAVERN CLUB and played at the club's very last night.

After leaving CHICORY TIP he performed with a variety of bands until, in 1983, he formed SHOOTER, now recognised as one of the best 60s revival bands touring today.

One of the major contributors to the guitar sounds of the 60s was the FENDER STRATOCASTER. Keith, by adapting his own personal vocal and guitar style, with his faithful "STRAT", gives SHOOTER the strident sounds that were the essence of the era.
