Thanks to my parents, who watched the kids last night so I could go out for a change, I got to see the Kelly Richey Band live at Darwin’s. Kelly was awesome. If you get a chance to see her, you should. Here is a repost of a clip of Kelly playing Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe”:

When we saw her at Darwin’s, she played behind her head, just like she does here, and it was so cool.
I have to tell a little story — when we walked in the bar, we sat down in the back. I looked around the room a bit, then noticed Steve was sitting right next to Kelly Richey. She and the band were at the next table. After the show, I got a chance to meet Kelly and talk with her. She was very nice and approachable, and so gracious.
I’m a fan for life, and now I can’t wait to see her again when I get a chance.
