Kelly Richey solo ... Live!

Experience KELLY RICHEY & the BAND!!!
- Kelly has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” That’s an apt appraisal of the Lexington, Kentucky native who’s been based in Cincinnati for many years. Richey has often been compared to such greats as Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan because of her ability to capture and entertain an audience with ripping guitar leads that both sing and astonish. Since establishing her own label, Sweet Lucy Records, Richey has released 11 albums and a live DVD. Checkout her music videos..."LOVE" by Kelly Richey" and "Afraid to Die"

Buoyed by critical praise and fiercely loyal fans, Kelly Richey only performs a limited number of shows each year.  9:00pm / $ 10 cover
