Kelly’s Lot 'Don’t Give My Blues Away' - Self Release

Kelly Zirbes formed this band in 1995 and with 9 CDs already released, their finely honed blues style shines through on this latest collection of 12 tunes.

All tracks are written by Kelly, with her guitar players Perry Roberson and Rob Zucca, and the production is bright and tight, with plenty of talented experience showing through in the playing. The saxophone and trumpet playing of Bill Johnson and Dave Welch is a driving force behind many of the arrangements and the Hammond B3 runs of Fred Mandel are a joy throughout.

However it is the guitar interplay of Robertson and Zucca that entwines the strong vocal performance of Kelly Zirbes and their impressive playing channels BB King and Robert Cray in style and tone. The blues, with a lot of rhythm and soul.
