Kelly Zullo

Incorporating machine-gun acoustic guitar skillslive drumming and simultaneous 'foot pedal bass', Kelly Zullo takes the art of singer-songwriter to a new level.   She breathes fresh air into the 'one man band concept' by using it as a vehicle to support her uniquely frenetic acoustic guitar playing, live looped drums and quirky life-bent philosophy acoustic funk jams that take the listeners ears off with her speed, accuracy and syncopation.

Michael Kelsey

A one-man version of STOMP, reminiscent of Michael Hedges/Phil Keaggy, his performance blends multiple musical genres and vocals along with some techno fun to create a sound all his own.  

He has shared the stage with many of guitar legends such as Santana, Steve Vai, Eric Clapton and toured nationally with Blind Melon and Dishwalla, as well as opened shows for The Doobie Brothers, 38 Special, Rodrigo and Gabriella and the California Guitar Trio. After performing an opening set for folk artist David Wilcox, David described Kelsey's show as “Cirque Du Soleil on acoustic guitar."  A finalist in Guitar Player Magazine's national competition and winner of Guitar Center’s "Guitarmageddon," he was chosen as the best unsigned guitarist out of over 3000 entrants nationwide.
