KELLY'S LOT

The Garden Stage @The Harbour Bar

Sunday August 11th at 4pm - FREE

Plus Special guest Paddy Smith

 

Kelly's Lot was formed in 1994 by Kelly Zirbes, a folk singer/songwriter with a heart for the blues. With 15 CDs and lots of touring in the USA and Europe, the band celebrates 29 years since the first night the band hit the stage at the Roxy in Hollywood. Kelly Z met Texas guitar player and soundman, Perry Robertson in 1996, who soon after produced ‘Kelly’s Lot - Live at the Troubadour’. Within a year he joined the band, started writing songs with Kelly Z and added the southern rock and Texas Blues influences that have helped shape the Kelly's Lot sound. In the last 10 years they have played some of the larger festivals like BeachLife Ranch, Waterfront Blues Festival, Happoy Face Music Festival, Simi Valley Cajun and Blues Festival, Nuits de Sologne and Lavaudieu Music Festival. Their songs have been heard in movies and television and covered by other artists. Perry has recorded and produced most of the band’s music including the 2019 release 'Can't Take My Soul’ which brought the Duo back to it's Americana roots. They recorded 2 more albums during the 2020/21 pandemic. ‘ANOTHER SKY’ which features a variety of genres including the folk song 'Foolish Try' which was placed in the new Ghostbusters movie Afterlife. And ‘WHERE AND WHEN’ which took the Duo back to the blues in a LIVE and acoustic fashion.  Kelly and Perry hit the road again to Europe in August of 2023 and brought their music to folks in France and Croatia and plan on returning next year. Kelly Z and Perry are currently writing and recording 2 new albums for a 2024 release to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kelly's Lot. Stay tuned, they are just getting started! The Kelly's Lot DUO will be joined by the legendary Paddy Smith on Harmoinica.
