Based in Los Angeles, California, Kelly’s Lot Acoustic Duo is making a holiday stop in Las Cruces to warm up the Saturday before Christmas! Kelly’s Lot was honored with the “Best Blues Band” award by Rock City News and named one of the Top 13 bands in the U.S. by Independent Songwriter Magazine.

Kelly Zirbes and Perry Robertson as Kelly’s Lot Acoustic, “combine blues and folk, along with some genuine bar room rock, to come up with a sound that is lively and wild, while also honest and sincere. Kelly and Perry put their heart and soul into every song.

Kelly is an alto, singing with a range close to Natalie Merchant and with the conviction of Marva Wright. Perry Robertson is a human metronome. That’s all there is to it. He plays the rhythm guitar as if he had a metronome surgically implanted into the wrist of his right hand,” wrote musician Scott Detweiler for

From the tour host of Kelly’s Lot Acoustic in Belgium:
“Was Kelly’s Lot Trio strong enough to bring the spirit of blues and confront their new audience ?

No need to wait for the last show to notice how the magic of Kelly’s Lot works. With an incredible energy and a powerful voice, Kelly Z draws the attention of the crowd and takes them for a ride on the highways of rock and blues. During an hour or two , Perry Robertson gave the perfect rhythm with his guitar and lifted Kelly up to find and show the best emotion on each song.”

Besides producing great music both as Kelly’s Lot Acoustic and with her full band, Kelly’s Lot, Kelly is an advocate for Hepatatis C awareness. Kelly’s Lot has played for countless benefits and Kelly started the Hep C Postcard campaign and began building a coalition of musicians and street teams to help her raise awareness on a larger scale.
