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 29 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 10 years they have played some of the larger festivals like BeachLife Ranch, Waterfront Blues Festival, Happoy Face Music 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 again in August of 2023 and brought their music to folks in France and Croatia and plan on returning to Europe next year. Kelly Z and Perry are currently writing and recording a new album for a 2024 release. Stay tuned, they are just getting started!
