BIO: Riggsbee Road is an all-female country and "new" grass band based in Raleigh, NC. Covering pop, country, and classic tunes with a big banjo sound and smooth vocal harmonies, this is one unique and powerful femme phenom.
Shelley Kelly, former lead singer with Huckleberry Blue, had a dream of creating an all-female project with a banjo signature and full three-part harmonies. Long-time friend and keyboardist Laura Schuchart signed on immediately with a similar vision. Next, Skye Pixton joined on banjo, bringing the third harmony and a fresh bluegrass twist, followed by two dynamo musicians -- Amy Hall on drums and Megan Maloney on bass. They are having a blast covering your favorite tunes in their unique style!
"If you are looking a band to entertain your guests whether it is a festival, wedding, or a backyard celebration, I highly recommend Riggsbee Road. This all-female band rocks it and brings high energy to your event! Recently, Riggsbee Road performed in Mount Olive, North Carolina at the Pickles, Pigs & Swigs Festival followed by the North Carolina Pickle Festival. Believe me, lead singer Shelly Kelly and her band are a BIG DILL! As an event planner, I seek bands that engage the audience and Riggsbee Road does just that. At both of their performances, festival attendees (and myself) were singing, toe tapping, hand clapping and dancing to the tunes. I RELISH Riggsbee Road, a band that encompasses pop, country, bluegrass, and classic tunes. Call Riggsbee Road now and get on their schedule. You will be DILLighted you did!"
