    Biography

    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.

    By their late-teens, the Brauns had been bitten by a rock and roll
    bug and started their own band in high school. After their first
    incarnation hit the skids, they ran into Nazz and formed a new
    alliance, one that would shape their sound. The band played one
    final show in the Pacific Northwest before packing the bags for
    Austin, Texas.

    For a band weaned on monthly gigs in the few venues Bend,
    Oregon, had to offer, Austin created a whiplash effect, with stages
    available seven nights a week. Prone to familial musical habits,
    the members of Reckless Kelly took up residence in the same
    home, leaving only for nightly gigs, including the acoustic sets
    that Willy says helped the band further define its identity. The
    band later picked up guitarist David Abeyta and bassist Jimmy
    McFeeley.

    Their self-released debut album Millican (1998) sold over 20,000
    units, and the Austin Chronicle named them the "Best Roots Rock
    Band" three years in a row. Following a live album and another
    studio album on their own label, they released Under the Table
    and Above the Sun on Sugar Hill in 2003. The band is named for
    the 19th century Australian bank robber Ned Kelly.
