Kelly Bell Band
Kelly Bell Band
It remains one of the best selling CDs in Mid-Atlantic region history. The band followed with the equally successful studio albums Ain’t Like it Used to Be in 2001 and Chasing the Sun in 2002. In March 2004, the KBB released their first live album “Live From the Recher Theatre…Finally” to much industry acclaim. Reincarnated, released in 2007, shows Bell’s diversity as a vocalist, taking fans from the Phat Blues rendition of the cartoon favorite “SpongeBob Squarepants” to the soulful, breathtaking acapella rendition of “No Different (Inside Kelly)”.
In 2008, the KBB released Live from Dr. Unk’s (DVD). In addition to the high energy show, the DVD includes bonus footage of Bell as an MCW wrestler, and interviews with the band. In addition, in their characteristic zealous style, the band released the CD’s That’s What’s Up and I’m Just Sayin’ that same year. In addition to his role as one of the premiere front men in the music industry today, the KBB’s success has also been promoted by Bell’s presence in Baltimore.
Bell is a regular on several area radio shows, performs as a professional wrestler, has written, recorded and acted in commercials, and has several television and movie appearances to his credit. Backed by keyboardist Kirk Myers, guitarist Ira Mayfield, bassist Freddie Louden, and drummer Spencer Brown, the KBB is always working on their next album, and rehearses regularly. Bell doesn’t take any show, song or phrase for granted. His goal remains to put on the best show every night for every fan, and strives to make personal connections. The band can often be found conversing with fans before shows, during breaks, and staying to sign every last CD after shows.
The band is active on several social networking sites, including Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. “As timeless as the blues may be, Kelly Bell’s success stems from his ability to take such a classic form of music and add his own touch to it, combining rock, funk, and a head full of dreadlocks, with old fashioned Muddy Waters’ blues.” Chris Terry, The Towerlight Read more on Last.fm.
