This is a simple two word musical reason RECKLESS KELLY. RK is a wonderful Austin based band that are poised to become a national juggernaut. Their sound is pure Texas Rock and Roll with just a few subtle hints of country in the instrumentation I.E. Those uber-cool touches of fiddle and dobro. The band still play local gigs all the time– these pictures were taken at a free concert during Batfest in 2013. What is Batfest? Easy partner it is going to be reason number four to live in Austin! Ckeck out Reckless Kelly on their website www.recklesskelly.com or better still watch one of their videos on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=R49zEpTtjAo
Great reasons to live in Austin. Number three. Reckless Kelly.
The last time we saw Reckless Kelly perform was in Hollywood at the World Famous Troubador and I am happy to say that they kicked ass on the West Coast–BIG TIME!
Reckless have a great new album available called ‘Long Night Moon’ which is very well worth checking out. This is a band that just go from strength to strength. They are wonderful live, however there are many subtleties to pick up on their studio recordings!
Oh, and Hank Williams 3 was also working on the free stage for Batfest! Not Bad!
