Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas.

The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice. Their father taught his four sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. They overcame hardships, struggled for recognition, and learned the lessons of the trial and error that defined them.

In one sense, it’s remarkable in the way of any musician, athlete, or businessperson who bucks the odds.

In another, though, it’s utterly natural that Reckless Kelly, born in the dreams of the two Braun brothers and their heritage but nurtured in the bumpy road of maturity, became the very essence of Americana music in all its far-flung glory.

“We came along in that second wave of the movement,” Cody Braun says. “Son Volt’s album Trace had a major effect on us. People like Joe Ely, Ray Kennedy and Robert Earl Keen were always big supporters. Our goal was to make music that had a country vibe but a solid rock edge.”

In the end, all the recipe required was to just add water. Water facilitates life. It enriches the soul.

As Music Row magazine proclaimed, “In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like.”

“This” is Reckless Kelly.
Adam Capps Band
Adam Capps Band
Adam Capps grew up listening to all genres of music and learned at an early age that good music is good music, no matter the genre. In his early teens he picked up an old, red, Danelectro guitar and began to pick away at it. It wasn't long after that, he had written his first few songs. During his attendance at Wichita State University, where he was an accomplished track athlete, he earned a degree in Spanish and Education. He used that degree to begin his first job as a high school Spanish teacher. During the last couple years of college he started performing at smaller venues and parties and gained a following in his hometown of Wichita, Ks. It wasn't until the age of 24 that Adam had the aspirations to pursue a music career.
In early 2014 The Adam Capps Band came together and put out their first single, "Play it Proud". "Proud" became a sort of anthem for the band to live by and they strive to take pride in every aspect of their music and performance. "Play it Proud" is a gritty sounding rock/country anthem that has the subtle sounds of an acoustic guitar and then explodes into a southern rock number with a formidable 33 second guitar solo. Give it a listen and it will give you the definition of what the band strives to be in their music! The band's second single release, "I Call it Home" was honored by being placed on the 2015 top 200 list of music on the Iceman's radio network, the largest radio platform for independent artists. Not much time after coming together the band was featured in the Kansas Proud Concert, opened for acts such as Dustin Lynch, Easton Corbin, Logan Mize, Cam, and performances at Kicker Country Stampede in the Summer of 2015, and Adam was invited to perform at a side stage at the CMA Festival in the summer of 2015.
The band consists of Adam Capps joined by a group of rockers who grew up in the 60's and 70's, during the golden age of rock music. Bill Hemmert plays a smooth lead guitar, Danny Burt pounding on the drums, and Chuck Simon thumpin the bass. Their blend of classic rock, country, and southern rock has become a hell of a sound that isn't like anything else on the radio today.
