Kelly's Lot was formed in 1994 by Kelly Zirbes, a folk singer/songwriter with a heart for the blues. With 15 CDs and lots of touring in the USA and Europe, the band celebrates 28 years since the first night the band hit the stage at the Roxy in Hollywood. Kelly Z met guitar player and soundman, Perry Robertson in 1996, who soon after produced ‘Kelly’s Lot - Live at the Troubadour’. Within a year he joined the band, started writing songs with Kelly Z and added the southern rock and Texas influences that have helped shape the Kelly's Lot sound. In the last 15 years they have played and toured as a Duo, Trio and a 5 piece band, while adding horns, keys and harmonica at different times. Some of the larger festivals they have played are Waterfront Blues Festival, Simi Valley Cajun and Blues Festival, Nuits de Sologne and Lavaudieu Music Festival. Their songs have been heard in movies and television and covered by other artists. Perry has recorded and produced most of the band’s music including the 2019 release 'Can't Take My Soul’ which brought the Duo back to it's Folk/Rock roots. They recorded 2 more albums during the 2020/21 pandemic. ‘ANOTHER SKY’ which features a variety of Americana genres including the folk song 'Foolish Try' which was placed in the new Ghostbusters movie Afterlife. And ‘WHERE AND WHEN’ which took the Duo back to the blues in a LIVE and acoustic fashion. Kelly and Perry hit the road in August of 2023 and brought their music to folks in France and Croatia and plan on returning there on a tour next year. Kelly Z recently wrote and released a single with her keyboard player Mo Beeks called 'I Gotta Sing The Blues' and is busy with Perry writing and recording a new Kelly's Lot album for an early 2024 release. Stay tuned, we are just getting started after 29 years.
