The Keane Brothers was an American pop music duo from 1976 to 1982, composed of pre-teens Tom Keane on piano and John Keane on drums. The duo released four albums and briefly hosted a television variety show on CBS. The brothers subsequently went on to solo careers as songwriters and music producers.
Tom and John Keane of Los Angeles, California, were the sons of Bob Keane, the founder of Del-Fi Records. After the elder Keane closed his record label, he promoted the boys as a bubblegum pop band.
The Keane Brothers’ first single, “Sherry” (#84) was released in 1976, followed closely by a self-titled debut album in 1977. During the summer of 1977, John who was 12 years and Tom who was 13 years, reportedly became the youngest people ever to host a prime-time variety television program. The Keane Brothers Show aired on CBS for four weeks in 1977 as a summer replacement for the Wonder Woman show.
Between the years of 1977 and 1982, the brothers released four albums. The second album, Taking Off, was released in 1978 with a disco sound and produced by song writer Lamont Dozier. In 1981, the group added Mark Moulin on guitars and Mike Millwood on bass and shortened its name to Keane. The third album was titled "Keane". In 1982, the group released the album "Today, Tomorrow And Tonight" with Moulin and Jason Scheff on bass. The brothers disbanded the duo, and instead pursued solo careers.
