Natalie’s presents Kelly Zullo and Michael Kelsey, two outstanding guitarists who will share the stage for a very special evening of music.
Incorporating machine-gun acoustic guitar skills, live drumming and simultaneous ‘foot pedal bass’, Kelly Zullo takes the art of singer-songwriter to a new level. She breathes fresh air into the ‘one man band concept’ by using it as a vehicle to support her uniquely frenetic acoustic guitar playing, live looped drums and quirky life-bent philosophy acoustic funk jams that take the listeners ears off with her speed, accuracy and syncopation. She was recently in a video feature in Guitar World Magazine, and performed in the “Woodchopper’s Ball” at the Kent Stage, which featured 9 of the top acoustic guitarists from around the country.
Michael Kelsey brings a free-flowing improvisational style to the guitar that involves every inch of his instrument. From his funky, percussive playing style that conjures an image of a one-man version of STOMP to lush instrumentals reminiscent of Michael Hedges/Phil Keaggy, his performance blends multiple musical genres and vocals along with some techno fun to create a sound all his own. He is the winner of Guitar Center’s “Guitarmageddon”. Chosen from among 3,000 entrants, the singer-songwriter performed at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads 2004 where he shared the stage with many legendary guitarists.
