The Kelly Richey Band News & Updates:
Hello everyone! Even with the holidays approaching, the Kelly Richey Band has been busy as usual! We had a short break from our last mini weekend tour, then hit the road this weekend starting on Friday with an early morning (it was SO early morning, even Starbucks wasn’t open!) television show in Louisville, Kentucky at station WHAS. We were featured on WHAS’s morning show called “Great Day LIVE”. This was the second time we’ve been on the show, and it was great fun to be in front of their huge TV cameras! We got to play two songs live, “Fast Drivin’ Mama” and “I Went down Easy”, both songs off my Sweet Spirit CD. Thanks WHAS for having us on!
Later that evening I had a solo gig, a cameo appearance at a special wine/handcrafted beer bar and entertainment venue called The Art of Entertaining located in Cincinnati in the O’Bryonville area. According to owner Julie Renner-Dowty, this was the last “Vine and Dine” of the year, so it was really a special night for all. I sat in with Terry Metcalf’s rhythm section, the brilliant Pete Pemberton on drums and Ross on bass. We jammed hard for over an hour, until it was time to go; with no time to waste I loaded up and sped across town to load in and sound check at Legends Nightclub located on the West side of Cincinnati. We’ve played at this venue many times previously and were very happy to see a lot of our local fans and some old friends who came out to see us play that night. We had a blast playing, and hope everyone else did too! Thanks to everyone for coming out, we really, REALLY appreciate your support!

The band got a night of rest, then Saturday we had to leave Cincinnati by 6:30 PM to make our gig in Louisville at Stevie Ray’s Blues Bar – show time at 9:30. WOW what a night! We played hard, and gave it our all. The crowd was awesome and we saw some old friends and made some new fans as well. One couple even drove all the way from Minnesota just to catch our show! We love fans like that! There was a lot of energy in the room and we played till 2:00 AM…with the crowd still wanting more! We had a GREAT night!!! I want to extend a HUGE “thank you” to all who braved the cold to come out and see our show!

I want to announce that the next Kelly Richey Band show will be at held at a VERY special venue, The Blue Wisp Jazz Club, located here in downtown Cincinnati. We are SO pleased to be able to play here, as this club has hosted many a famous jazz/blues musician in its day. What makes this night extra, EXTRA special, though, is that we will be recording our show live!!! So we hope all of you can come out to this event! We’d LOVE to see you there! Our show will be held on Friday the 29th, with shows at 7:00 and 9:00 PM. See you there!

I also wanted to mention that Sonya, our photographer, is back in Cincinnati for a couple of weeks over Thanksgiving and my birthday (November 30th). She’s been on the road with us the last few days, getting photos of all of our shows and doing some portrait sittings before she heads back to California. Sonya’s work is unique and brilliant. Her many years as a fine artist have really honed her eye– in short, she makes us look good…! Thank you so much Sonya!
As winter closes in I want wish all of you a happy and safe holiday season! See you down the road!
