As some may know, Will, our dear companion, compadre and beat keeper left us; left us on warm, fuzzy terms but, you know, breaking up is hard to do. He's still our bud but he left a vacant hole in our hearts and in our band.  We miss you man! To fill the heart hole, we're following that "time heals all" thing (whatever, eh) as well as accepting any and all invites to party with the man. As for the hole in the band we've gone out and not only filled up the missing bass line but also added another drummer/percussionist to the troupe.  So, Introducing......

Introducing Jon Doll and Nakia Keathley, ta daa

Ishtar-2012 Jon is covering the boom, boom, thump, thump, thump part; Nakia is joining Dan in filling out the drums of all sorts part. They're both accomplished musicians bringing performance experience, enthusiasm and new angles and perspectives to Keshvar Project. More details to come in their upcoming bios. For now, we hope you come out and welcome them to the family.


And, you'll have the chance in a few weeks because we'll are welcoming them to the stage in a big way, throwing them right into the fire on a big, hot sizzling skillet of events.
