FRIDAY Oct 12th – Reckless Kelly w/ Jake Stringer and Better Than Nothin’ at Outland Ballroom. Doors are 8pm for this All Ages Show. Advance tickets at www.outlandcomplex.com.
Reckless Kelly’s roots reach back to Idaho and Oregon, where brothers Willy and Cody Braun paired their state-required education with a musical school of learning taught by their father. Muzzie Braun and the Boys (that also included other members of the Braun clan) took to the stage, playing western swing regionally, as well as on the Grand Ole Opry and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
After years of a life and career centered around drums, Jake Stringer decided it was time to try seeing and hearing things from a different perspective. In 2015, he decided to pick up a pen, paper, and a guitar, and start writing some songs of his own. After a few songs came along, he hooked up with guitarist and long-time friend Zach Mourning to write and record some ideas. Once the two had a few writing sessions between them, and a lot of questions as to whether or not they should give it a go, they decided to call on Cody Pilkinton to start working up some songs. With the addition of long-time friends Adam Clarke on bass and Austin Baker on drums, Better Than Nothin’ has pretty much become exactly what the name says… Better Than Nothin’.
