WE ARE KELROY

A five-piece rock band from Chicago. Our music is a mixture of many things, but for sake of argument, lets say post rock, psychedelia and punk. Regardless of the genre we fall into, what we share with you is intense, thoughtful and unique.

Kelroy was conceived in 2007, but we've been friends, in and out of different bands (Uno De Mas, Egregor, Descarga), & have had the luxury of making music with one another for about 20 years or so. Its been a trek with many more miles to go. 

We've played at a majority of Chicago's hot spots as well as many well worn venues here and there like Double Door, The Metro, The House of Blues, Empty Bottle, Beat kitchen, Cobra Lounge to name a few. Outside of Chicago we've played at some fine cities in New York, St. Louis and Denver and recently travelled to Austin Texas for the 2018 South by Southwest Festival. 

We welcome the opportunity to let loose and allow the distinction between the studio recordings and live performances reveal two sides of the same kelroy. Playing live and recording in studio are two very different beasts, but ones we love dancing with as often as possible.

We're hoping this site becomes as much yours as ours so visit often, spark conversations, share your thoughts and contribute as we work towards the 4th album (that one coming in 2018), some more shows and maybe even hitting the road. Till number four is out, look forward to seeing you later
