Kelly Richey is not your average guitarist. She is a hot guitar player who's one of the brighter emerging stars on the blues scene today.
Opening with "Gonna Leave This Town," the Kelly Richey Band immediately started winning over new fans. The next song "Brick," featured a guitar run by Richey, and a good bass run by Jeremy Armstrong. "The Blues Don't Lie" kept all the blues fans happy. "Hey Joe" featured Kelly doing a little behind-the-head playing. The Derek and the Dominos tune, "Mean Old World", was a very interesting choice. The blues classic "Crossroads" ended the first set to a delighted crowd.
Rob Brockman's bass drum started driving the band's second set. A few songs in, the band played "Gonna Leave This Town" again, it was requested by a fan. "Angel From Heaven" and "Tears In The Rain" were fine examples of the quality of this band. Nina Simone's "Nobody's Fault" was another good choice of a cover.
The Kelley Richey Band turned it up on an instrumental that lead into Neil Young's "Down By The River". The extended blues jam on this song surprised and impressed everyone in attendance. It was a great way to end the show.
