TrueFire Educators Kelly Richey and Freekbass on Tour Together!

We’re excited to share that two super talented TrueFire Educators, Kelly Richey and Freekbass, will be on tour together this spring! If you happen to be in one of the cities they are stopping through, do yourself a favor and grab up some tickets for you and some friends. Trust us, good times will be had by all. Check out the promo video below for a taste of what you’ll experience.

The Kelly Richey band features heavy, riff-soaked blues guitar that is driven head first into incendiary funk bass lines and powerful rock/hip hop infused backbeats and sports a new, first-class line up for 2013.

Kelly Richey’s wicked fretboard prowess and husky vocals meet up with the legendary Freekbass, one of the best funk bassists in the world today, and female powerhouse drummer Jyn Yates. These masterful players deliver solid, in-the-pocket monster grooves that forge the backbone for Richey to fly on.
