The Kelly Bowlin Band has opened up for such noteworthy artists as: The Blasters, Soul Asylum, The Radiators, Dave Mason, John Clyne and the Peacemakers, and many more.

OC Register Critic "â?¦.The Kelly Bowlin Band has experienced an almost Cinderella type story over the past two years. Dwight Yoakam meets the Rolling Stonesâ?¦" - Newport News "â?¦.If you hurry, you can say you knew them when, but it's gonna take some fancy footworkâ?¦" - Sun Post News "â?¦.Dramatically arranged, heartfelt, grounded and realâ?¦" - Music Connection Often autobiographical, "Williamsburg" is a musical tapestry that blends the best of gritty rock-n-roll with the introspection, sensitivity, and organic ambience notable of bluegrass.

Forget the trite, fleeting, ephemeral sounds of today's mainstream music. "Williamsburg" is an odyssey into the Real Thing.
