Brad has enjoyed international sales of his first album "Just a Step Away," and has currently composed most of the music for his follow up record.
If you're looking for some great, classic blues or rock n' roll inspired blues for your club, private event, or festival, the Brad Kelsey Band is the PERFECT CHOICE.
Brad has loved Blues music from an early age, influenced by the greats like: BB King, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. He picked up his first guitar at age 10 and never looked back. Now Brad is joined by Kent Snyder on bass, Brandon Ford on drums, John McCorkle on keys, and Steve Lunn on tenor sax and rhythm guitar. The band's style mixes their blues roots with a rock n' roll edge that makes the music cutting edge yet classic at the same time.
Brad's goal is to keep blues music alive by introducing, and making it relevant to a younger audience, while still entertaining fans who have loved the blues for years. Over the past 8 years the band has entertained audiences throughout the northern Indiana area and has shared the stage with artists such as: Joe Bonamassa, The great Blues Harp Master James Cotton, Carl Weathersby, Mississippi Heat, Root Doctor, Stacy Mitchhart, Bart Walker, and more.
The Brad Kelsey Band is available as a 3, 4, or 5 piece band to be flexible for varying venue sizes and budgets. The 3-piece has that classic power trio sound. The 4-piece version adds John McCorkle on keyboards, and the full 5-piece band includes Steve Lunn on tenor sax and rhythm guitar. No matter what instrumentation you choose, you are guaranteed to have a great show!
We provide all of our own sound equipment, and take only a couple of very short breaks, depending on performance length.
The Brad Kelsey Band's tight sound and exciting stage presence is perfect for club dates, festivals, corporate events, and private parties!
Thank you for looking at our press kit, and we look forward to working with you, and exceeding your expectations.
