Keith Pulvermacher LIVE/Happy 50th Anniversary Outpost! @ Outpost's Facebook Page

Keith Pulvermacher grew up three doors down from his grandparents in the town of Butler. Being brought up around so much family with strong roots in music and love, the inspiration for his music was instilled deep within his soul. He likes to say his music isn’t country, It isn’t blues, It isn’t folk, It isn’t rock. It’s distinctly “Midwestern” music inspired by Wisconsin.
