"Blues pianist and vocalist Tommy Keys may be a Long Island native, but his music feels more like gumbo with a shot of bourbon than fried clams and iced tea." Jon Kleinman - Elmore Magazine

“Tommy Keys has done his part to preserve the traditions of barrelhouse boogie and stride piano. His first solo CD features five first-class originals. Though devoted to historical piano styles, Mr. Keys is no slouch as a singer either, lending his warm tenor to the original blues tunes…” Jon Sobel - Blogcritics.org
