The Kellys really, really, really, really, really, really need your help! :)

So, as you read in the last update, we have made it to the final round of a national competition through Maurices! Final round voting is underway, and we're holding the #5 slot. We were previously at #3 at one point but have dropped. We're asking from the way deep down bottom of our hearts. Please take 5 minutes everyday from now until December 15, to show The Kellys a little love. It's really easy to vote, and you can do it once a day per email address. All you have to do is visit the following link, listen to our brand new song Victory (recorded for the contest), and while doing so, click the VOTE link! Put in your information, and then confirm the email they send you. Easy as pie and simple as cake!


You can even take it a step further by sharing this link with your email contacts, or any of your social networks. Every bit helps! If we win, we play a festival with The Bangles and Sick of Sarah, and head to LA for a video shoot for Victory! 

Thank you all so much! We appreciate your help greatly! And remember, this Friday, we're back at Cedars with our ruKus radio pals The Royaltons! Hope to see you all there.

Vote for The Kellys!!

Hello once again everyone! Much love and thanks to everyone who helped push us into the Top 10 and Round 2 of the Maurices Small Town Sound Search on Sonicbids.com! The contest is looking for the best in small town sounds, and we've made it into Round 2! In round two, the finalists were asked to record a song with the theme of "small town charm,"and last Sunday we put some finishing touches on an amazing little ditty we'll be submitting to Maurices very soon! Round 2 voting opens on December 1 and runs through the 15th, and you'll be able to hear the BRAND NEW song, and VOTE ONCE A DAY PER EMAIL ADDRESS to help us win this thing! There is some stiff competition, and there's even another ruKus radio artist in the contest as well! Very cool! So, thank you all, and help us spread the word! Send the link to your friends and have them vote as much as possible for the first 15 days of December! Help give The Kellys an amazing Christmas gift! :)

Also, December 10 brings us back to our most favourite Youngstown venue, Cedars Lounge! We're planning on bringing the house down with our new pals, The Royaltons out of Twinsburg, Ohio! These guys have quickly become a ruKus radio fan favourite, and we're extremely excited to have them along.

And speaking of, if you've yet to check out the all-new www.ruKusradio.com, do it! Sign up and create a profile absolutely free! Our bass player, Moe, has been running ruKus radio since 2007. From podcasts to 24/7 streaming, it does a wonderful job of supporting the independent musician and artist. The ruKus crew is currently hosting a funding drive to help keep the station alive and increase quality, and they're only asking for a $1 donation from as many people as possible! Please, find it in your hearts this holiday season to support the starving independent artist! Visit the ruKus radio Kickstarter campaign to donate 100% securely through Amazon.com.

Whoa... an update?!

Happy Summer everyone! It has been a busy one thus far for your unsung musical heroes The Kellys! We have had some amazing shows already, and are lining up the rest of summer and fall as we speak. A quick thanks goes out to Kevin and Jodie Golier, the masterminds behind FarmJammaLamma, Jacob and the gang at Lemon Grove and Doug and the Party on the Plaza crew for some killer shows already this summer!

And we would officially like to throw up a huge blogtastic welcome to our new guitarist, Nick Rossi. It has been a seemless transition into playing with Nick, and we have opened ourselves up to a world of audible possibilities! Come dig the new sound soon, and you might just hear some new original material already being worked on for the new album!

Also, the online release of our DVD, Channel, will be coming very soon and will be coupled with some FREE GIVEAWAYS!! Stay tuned for updated info on a Kellys trivia contest where you may be able to score yourself some swag or a free copy of the DVD!

We will be in touch soon... stay tuned!

So... this is the new year!

Ok, so we just couldn't pass up stealing this blog's title from Death Cab For Cutie. But regardless, happy new year! Yes, we know it's February, but things have been a little crazy around these parts. We hope you all had a wondrous holiday season, and are well on your way to prospering in OH10! :)

We've got all kinds of goodness FINALLY coming your way this year. We're finishing up the DVD this month, and you're absolutely going to love it. With the live orchestra performances, videos for two previously unreleased tracks, and a whole host of bonus features and menu fun, it will be a must-buy! We'll keep you posted on specifics!

Our own Youngstonian Democracy, Opus, will also be blasting forth this year! We've got a few more studio sessions to get under wraps, and the finishing touches will be applied following! So definitely stay tuned for more info on that too!

We've got some live show ideas in the mental crock pot as well, so as always, be sure to keep tabs all over the intrwebs!


Oh, and be sure to search for us on Last.fm on your computers, phones and gaming consoles! Tag our songs to make the station better!

Stay tuned!
