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 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.
