Keith Douglas

I've played on a number of manufacturers' pro models over the years and never before has a trumpet felt so well-rounded, yet laser-sharp on upper register attack and ease of range. The 1600I has truly been a game-changer for my confidence on stage - I just can't play it enough!
Keith Douglas


Keith has been playing trumpet professionally for over two decades. He got his start with the international touring ensemble, Mad Caddies. He then went on to round out the indescribable, San Francisco-based sextet, King City and in 2011 he joined the highly acclaimed, Mariachi el Bronx. The latter went on to become somewhat of a staple on late-night television and remains his primary focus to this day. Douglas has guested with many highly renowned live acts, from NOFX to Manu Chao. He, individually, as well as with el Bronx, has lent his talents on a number of studio sessions for artists such as Madness and TV themes and performances for programs like Showtime's Weeds (and even Yo Gabba Gabba!). Most recently, he and the band celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the release of 2009’s eponymously named debut studio album with a pair of packed Southern California shows. Next up is a direct support slot on an LA, hometown Halloween show with hip-hop legends, Cypress Hill; followed by appearances at the 18th installment of the Fest in Gainesville, FL and Flogging Molly’s, Salty Dog Cruise to Key West and the Bahamas. 2020 holds promise for some early moves in the songwriting process and an eventual return to the recording studio for another effort from the band.
