In Honor of Our Special Friend, Mike Kelly

Our amazing bass player and very special friend, Mike Kelly passed from his long battle with cancer.  He loved to sing and play music which he started at a very young age and became a consummate bassist who was sought out by the best bands around including a long term engagement with the Michael Gregory Band.  His early musical influences included Tower of Power, R&B, and Motown.  At the age of 17 he started playing in garage bands and in his mid twenties he lived his music dream by going on the road with various bands.  Recently he married his long time girlfriend, Brooklyn who has stood by him through both good and bad times and brought much joy into his life.  

Cherry Bomb had the honor of sharing the stage with this very talented musician and cherished friend who always kept us in stitches with his humor and up beat personality.  We are grateful to have had the opportunity to play music with and to know, Mr. Mike Kelly.

Forever Rock Our Friend!
