Kelly's Lot 25 Year Anniversary
Add to Calendar
Kelly's Lot was formed in 1994 by Kelly Zirbes, a folk singer/songwriter with a heart for the blues. With 14 CDs and lots of touring in the USA and Europe, the band will celebrate 25 years since the band hit the many concert stages of Hollywood, CA. Kelly Z met Soundman Perry Robertson in 1996 who soon after produced their ‘Live at the Troubadour’ CD. Within a year he joined the band, started writing songs with Kelly Z and added the Southern Rock and Texas influences that have shaped their sound. As a duo or trio, they have played at coffee shops, theaters and house concerts and in the last 15 years have created an 5-8 piece Blues band that is well respected in the American Blues Scene. Some of the larger festivals they have played are Waterfront Blues, Simi Valley Cajun and Blues Festival, Ventura County Blues Festival, Lavaudieu Music Festival. Their songs have been heard in movies and television and covered by other artists. Kelly Z is currently working on songs for a couple film projects while still grabbing some inspiration from her fans on facebook. Challenging them to look in their hearts and share just one word, she then challenges herself to chose a word and write a song in two hours. Perry Robertson, who shares the band leader title with Kelly Z, has recorded and produced most of the band’s music including the just released 'Can't Take My Soul’. This new CD features a lot of Blues but with a couple Folk and Roots/Rock additions. It’s a journey of messages, inspirations and some toe tapping rhythms. Kelly and her Lot will celebrate their 25th anniversary here at the Mint on Nov 2 where they played since they began their journey. With the current line up, most who have been in the band over 15 years, they will feature the songs they have been playing since the beginning and new songs they have just released.
