Keith Shapiro

I was preparing a post on DJ’ing when I heard the sad news that Austin DJ and event promoter Keith Shapiro passed away last night.

I only met Keith very briefly many years ago, but he touched many lives through his work in our community. He was also host of the Blues podcast Confessing The Blues.

You can offer condolences and support to his memorial Facebook page.   A number of his friends are also paying tribute to him online.

My condolences to his friends and family especially to his wife Summer and his two daughters Anna and Ella.

    Thanks for making mention of him. He was a wonderful person and a true giver. His contributions to the Austin dance community alone will be felt for years to come. He was one of those passionate “do-er” types. Definitely a huge loss for the world.

    On top of the Facebook memorial page, there’s also a fund set up to help Summer and their kids shoulder the costs of his passing:
