Kelly Bell Band



Blues Revue Magazine describes the Kelly Bell Band (KBB) as “Among the most genre-expanding acts on today’s blues scene. Who else can combine elements of hip-hop, funk, and blues-electrified here” Originally formed as the back-up band for rock and roll pioneer, Bo Diddley, KBB has been touring the world ever since entertaining fans in Japan, Spain, Italy, Greece, Cuba, Germany and more.

The band has won two prestigious Maryland Music Awards, including “Best Blues Band.” In 2018 they were been nominated for “Music Icon”. KBB has been voted “Best Blues Band” in the Mid Atlantic Region (12 years in a row), and was recently named “Best Band” by Baltimore Style Magazine.

“The Kelly Bell Band is exactly the kind of genre-bending, rule-breaking, and color-smearing group the music scene of 2019 desperately needs. The Kelly Bell Band lives outside of all the lines and freely mixes blues, funk, rock, metal, hip-hop, and more into a compelling fusion of musical styles.” – Mike O’Cull, Rock And Blues Muse


Opening Acts

National Anthem

Shelby and Alexis National Anthem

Shelby Kuhn and Alexis Sauer are two vocalists from West Virginia with a shared love for making music together. They met during their time in Washington High School’s Camerata Chamber Choir under the direction of Ken Cooper, and since graduating high school they have always found the time to keep singing together.

Alexis is a 2022 graduate of Shepherd University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, and Shelby is currently earning her Bachelor’s in Music Therapy from Shenandoah Conservatory. They are both honored to have the opportunity to sing at this year’s Fireworks Celebration, and are excited to share their love of music with everyone there.

Music has always been a part of my life.  As my Mom likes to say, I have been singing literally since before I could talk! I was obsessed with guitars as a baby and the word "guitar" was among one of my very first (actually, I pronounced it "tar" back then).  But the moment I stepped out and sang in front of a group of people, I was hooked.   I started singing karaoke with my parents when I was 7 years old, then moved on to acting and singing in several productions of musical theatre, as well as one year of show choir and two years of playing cello.  When the pandemic hit, having not much productive to do, my Mom suggested that I (well, more like told me to) start playing my guitar for an hour a day.  I did that, and also started learning to play songs with my Dad, who also plays guitar.  The rest, they say, is history.  I am thankful to have parents who instilled in me a deep appreciation and love for all kinds music, from the jazz of the 40's (thanks, Mom) to the grunge era (thanks, Dad), and far beyond.
