Kelly Richey Band Kicks off Studio 89

2/15/13  -  WE HAVE A FULL HOUSE AND ARE NO LONGER TAKING REGISTRATIONS.

Kelly Richey has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.”  That's probably enough to make you want to register to see her band kick off the Spring 2013 edition of Studio 89, but we'll tell you a little more about what to expect.

The Kelly Richey Band features heavy, riff-soaked blues guitar driven head first into monster funk bass lines and rock/hip hop infused backbeats. The Kelly Richey band sports a new line-up for 2013. Freekbass and Jyn Yates have come onboard to join Kelly for a powerful blues- rock/funk power trio that aims to rock the house. Richey’s inimitable, incendiary guitar work and husky vocals meet up with the legendary Freekbass, one of the best funk bassist in the music world today, and female drummer Jyn Yates, a powerhouse player who lays down solid, in-the-pocket grooves that forge the backbone for Freekbass and Richey to fly on. These masterful players bring unparalleled energy and brilliant musicianship to the stage. Traversing new territory for the Kelly Richey Band will be the group’s agenda as they deftly meld blues-rock and funk for a dizzyingly potent wall of sound.

The 2013 kick off of Studio 89 with the Kelly Richey Band is not to be missed!  Of course, none of this year's sessions are to be missed.

This is a non-ticketed event, but we do suggest a $5 donation to help cover our costs.

WE HAVE A FULL HOUSE AND ARE NO LONGER TAKING REGISTRATIONS AS OF  2/15/13.

WNKU members will be given first priority for seating.  If you're not yet a member of WNKU, join today
