I had the opportunity to play a gig with Bill and it was excellent. His overall presentation included great sound, huge song list of all types of music, fun stage banter, and more. If you want someone to energize your party or get together, hire Bill Roberts. I promise your guests will be talking about the music long after the party is over!” Tod E


The AcoustiCats is the acoustic duo of Bill Roberts and Keith Horne. You know Bill by browsing this website and through his work with his band, Cat Daddy, his solo act, recording projects and more.

Bill Roberts & Keith Horne Perform at Carr Bros

Keith Horne has been a Richmond phenomenon since his high school days. Also a multiinstrumentalist,  Keith’s skill on the bass is legendary in his excitement and incredible speed. Keith’s playing style is unusual in that he is left-handed and adapted his playing to a right handed guitar. Instead of playing a guitar or bass made for lefthanders, he upturns a righthander’s instrument and executes his playing with incredible speed and precision. You must see him play to believe.

As a teenager and in his early 20s Keith had a highly popular Richmond band called Secrets. As many musicians dream of doing (but most never actually do or upon arrival find it is too competetive) Keith moved to Nashville and almost immediately found a position with a nationally known band. For the next 20 plus years Keith toured with big name acts from Tricia Yearwood to Peter Frampton and Luke Bryan. He has been ranked in music industry publications as “The Third Best Bassist In The World”. Even with his tremendous success Keith stayed accessible to his friends back home and came home often for gigs and jam sessions.

Once again a  Richmond resident, Keith is involved in various projects, among them The AcoustiCats, paired with Bill Roberts. Together, Bill and Keith draw on their many decades of experience and deep repertoire of material, fashioning their arrangements for guitar and bass with rich lead and vocal harmony.

The AcoustiCats are an excellent act for restaurants, parties and events requiring music that’s less loud than a full band, a seemingly endless well of material delivered at the highest quality.

The songs below are examples of what you will hear at an AcoustiCats show.
