David, not quite sure if this is the correct answer to your question, but
when combining mouse and key events I did:

EventHandler[ ....
   {"MouseClicked" :> If[CurrentValue["AltKey"], ..., ...]}]

So, I am assuming the following should work: replace "MouseClicked" with
"KeyDown" and use If construct to test the current value of multiple keys.
