The Kelly Richey Band Photos with Heart and Boston

This has been a very BUSY past few weeks!!!  The Kelly Richey Band kicked things off by playing “The Bash” in Middletown, OH on Wednesday of last week.  On Friday, I entered a week long retreat with WWf(a)C and slipped out for a 24 hour period to join the band to open for Heart in PA and once the retreat ended yesterday, Thurdays at noon, I headed straight to Kettering, OH to the Fraze Pavilion to open for Boston last night.  Today we get back in the van and head to Thunder Bay, Ontario for one of Canada’s largest blues festivals where we play tomorrow night!

Here are some photo highlights from the Heart and Boston Concerts– I will write and reflect on our journey’s when I return!

The Kelly Richey Band LIVE – WE WILL ROCK YOU!

The Kelly Richey Band LIVE – WE WILL ROCK YOU!

This past weekend the Kelly Richey Band hit the road for two festivals– unfortunately, the festival in Indiana was rained out, but the festival in Alpena, Michigan was alive and well. The weather was a little cooler than we expected, but once we started playing we warmed up quickly! The crowd was great, and we really appreciate all those who came out to see us! Check out the photos for KRB in action: Rikk Manning on bass guitar, and Tobe Donohue on drums (and DJ scratching) are two of the best matches for my guitar work to hit the stage yet! I’m thrilled to be playing with these two masterful musicians– we have a great time off stage as well as on, and I couldn’t be happier! Check out the photos below: (Photos by Sonya Ziegler)

Boston-The Band

Back by popular demand, Tom Scholz’ band BOSTON will embark on another highly anticipated tour. Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the extraordinary sound that is faithful to their studio recordings.

BOSTON became an iconic classic rock fixture when they joined the music scene with their self-titled album in 1976. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Smokin’,” rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second album, Don’t Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” With over 31 million albums sold to date, BOSTON has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live audiences that span generations.

Fans can expect to hear all the classic songs they have grown to love, and will be treated to some new additions to their set list based on recent requests. Enjoy wild Hammond organ work, soaring harmony guitars, and exceptional vocal arrangements, as well as BOSTON’s unique visual stage presentation and plenty of extra-terrestrial sounds heard nowhere else on Earth.

Kelly Richey Poster_11x17.indd

Kelley Richey is a no-holds-barred, serious axe grinder. Setting up her band as a power trio (drums, bass, and guitar) showcases her muscular, incendiary leads and masterful guitar chops. Playing live is where Richey shines, literally bringing down the house at every show she plays. Cognizant of the emotionality in her live shows, Richey steamrolls; she hits the audience hard and fast, grabs on and doesn’t let go.

Making music that’s hard rocking, blues-based, and guitar driven, she blasts her audiences with jaw-dropping lightening fast riffs and a muscularity of playing that even many of the best male guitarists don’t possess. Her soulful voice– a big, powerful alto, provides the arc that completes the circle for a total sonic experience that is not to be forgotten.
