The Blue Moxie Duo happened by accident. Al booked a show for another project they were involved in. After working really hard to get into this venue, Al and Kelly just couldn't cancel the show when their guitar player was unable to commit to the date. Al, who normally plays bass and hasn't picked up a guitar for almost 20 years, grabbed Kelly's acoustic and started working on a rough set list. They just needed enough material to get through the night. They worked on it for two straight weeks and managed to pull off what seemed impossible. Afterwards, they decided to work on tightening up their sound, adding interesting new music and booking themselves as a duo. After much thought and consideration, they came up with the name Blue Moxie. It is said that the color blue has many soothing effects, while also representing a calm and steady strength, and to have moxie means you have guts. Blending these two words together was a perfect fit for what Al and Kelly managed to accomplish in such a short period of time. They are set to hit 100 or more shows in one short year of performing together.
AL & KELLY
Al & Kelly have extensive musical backgrounds going back as far as high school. It was when they started performing together that they realized that they'd both been in cover bands that all played the same music. With that in mind, they started working on making it a point to pick music that other bands weren't covering. There are decades of music out there to choose from so the task was to find music that isn't being covered by other bands, and to perform them in a unique style all their own. Being able to work on music and add new sounds to their line up is is a daily activity. While keeping some staple songs that everyone loves and asks for, they've set forth a task to include music that is not being overplayed by other bands.
