080813 Jimmy Keys at Franklin Opera House Friday Night (280)

FRANKLIN — Jimmy Keys, internationally known pianist and comedian,  will perform at the Franklin Opera House on Friday, August 9 at 7:30 p.m.

Jimmy Keys was born in Kent, England and as a young child he studied classical piano. At the age of twelve Jimmy started playing in school bands. He soon graduated to the local music scene, working in clubs and pubs with numerous pop, soul and rock groups, singing and playing keyboards.
Later, he "went professional" and headed off to Germany with a local group, to seek fame and fortune following after dozens of other post-Beatle bands! In the early 70's he went on to work with many top artists including Ben E. King, Eddie Floyd and Percy Sledge. Later, with his own band, he worked extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East.
In 1981 he decided to return to his first love, the piano, and become a solo entertainer. Since then he has developed a very unique and highly entertaining comedy and musical act. He's a cross between Elton John (in that he sings and plays the piano) and Robin Williams (in that his comedy is off-the-wall). His show is packed with comedy, impressions and favorite Broadway songs, wrapped around some of the most exciting piano playing and audience participation that you will ever witness.
Good seats are never a problem at the historic Franklin Opera House, an intimate, 300 seat theater located in downtown Franklin, in the City Hall building. There are no obstructed view seats in either the orchestra section or in the balcony, and ample free parking all around. Tickets for Jimmy Keys are now on sale at www.franklinoperahouse.org, byvisiting the box office Mon-Fri 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. or by calling 934-1901. Reserved tickets are priced at $20 each.
