Reckless Kelly is set for two NC dates this weekend on Friday and Saturday night…
Reckless Kelly is an Austin, Texas based band with a history developed from musical inheritance while forging their own independent path. Brothers, Cody and Willy Braun originally hail from the mountains of Idaho and via Oregon found themselves in the heart of Texas – Austin, capital city of the Lone Star State.
This week, those brothers along with fellow bandmates Jay Nazz, David Abeyta and Joe Miller bring their sound to the capital city of the Tarheel State after a stop in Hickory of western North Carolina.
The inaugural show of the Music In the Mill series for 2018, The Crossing at Hollar Mill has developed an extensive lineup of red dirt, Texas country and Americana bands this season. Reckless Kelly kicks off a lineup that features other prominent artists in the scene like John Moreland, Shovels and Rope and Tyler Childers among others.
Named for the Australian bushranger, Ned Kelly, Reckless Kelly has been paving their own way since 1997. Growing from their original residency at Lucy’s Retired Surfer’s Bar on Sixth Street, the band performed both originals and covers on many a Monday night before releasing their first studio album, Millican.
Since, the band has released numerous albums behind worldwide acclaim and toured relentlessly building a rabid fan base across the country. Their latest, Sunset Motel, was released in conjunction with Thirty Tigers and their own record label, No Big Deal.
Their ninth studio album, Reckless Kelly has mastered the art of both ballads and southern rock with a personal blend and touch of additional flavor added to each. Their live show performances come with a reputation for energetic, crowd engaging performances and having rocked the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh before, expect another legendary show this time around.
With scheduled stops in both Hickory and Raleigh, fans across the state will have at least one opportunity for a local show and the option to see both. Get your tickets for each below and don’t miss the opportunity to see Reckless Kelly rock North Carolina this weekend.
