Kelly Overdrive has gone through quite a bit of changes in the eight years since its inception back in 2002. The band continues to be fronted by Eric Battestelli, who plays guitar and writes music in addition to lead vocals for the group. The rhythm section also continues to be supported by his brother James, who has been playing drums for over 20 years now (since age 5). Now in 2010, they welcome the addition of Daniel J. Galley, a wonderfully talented keyboardist with an awesome voice. Kelly Overdrive have been busy since recording their debut CD, “827”, in 2006. They have played the main stage at the famous Grape Street Pub before it closed its doors. They have played multiple gigs at the Northstar Bar and the Kyhber, headline spots on WYBE's "Wild About Philly Live!" and the main stage at the Trochadero in 2008. The band took over a year off while Eric settled in to his fatherly duties (he is a new dad!). In that time, the band lost former members Paul Curcio (bass) and Frank Baldino (rhythm guitar) to personal responsibilities. In that time, the Battestelli brothers teamed up with Daniel J. to return to the stage. They marked their return with a March show at the Draught Horse on Temple University’s main campus. Kelly Overdrive is aching to infect the Philadelphia area with their unique sound and blow them away with their bittersweet melodies and amazingly fun, mature rock.
