We stopped off at In a Pig's Eye in Salem this past Saturday to pick up our Furs tickets from our wonderful pal Terry Brenner AND to catch a couple sets of The Darlings....man every time I see them I am amazed at Kelly Knapp's fabulous voice...and I must relate this story: Well as you know there was this band called the Bristols..... ahem, I love Kim, Michele and Kelly but, let me just say that I don't think Kelly was singing anywhere ever NEAR her full potential to say the least....then I had a party at my house and I hear this amazing, strong, woman's voice coming from the other room....I walk over to take a peak at who it might be!....to my complete surprise it was Kelly Knapp!! I had NO idea she could sing like that!! And I have been blown away by her voice every time ever since.....of course there also one of Boston's BEST guitarists in the band; Billy Loosigian and the most fabulous Simon Ritt as well..so needless to say it was a great night of really well preformed country tunes....all the stuff my parents used to listen to as a matter of fact!! Really excellent show....The place; In a Pig's Eye gets packed but it's a very cool and friendly crowd, we had a most awesome time there!!
