Kelly n’ Troy on the Bandstand – 8:30 PM Saturday, September 20

Kelley n' TroyKelly Carvin, a raw, rebellious Jersey girl and Troy Walls, a down to earth country boy from West Virginia partnered up to pursue their music careers in 2012. Vastly different from each other but somehow this duo pairs up for musical magic! Kelly, raised on rock n’ roll and pop, has been pursuing her career as a solo indie pop/rock artist for the past 5 years playing clubs in and around the North East and more recently the Southeast. Troy, on the other hand, has been playing clubs in the South, singing and writing country songs since he was 10 years old. When the two come together as writers, pop rock and country mix in a very organic way with a splash of soul reminiscent of Motown. With Troy’s country voice and Kelly’s rockin’ pop voice, the team is undeniable.
