The Kel-Tones!! Together as a duo Dave & Rob perform a timeless list of easy listening tunes consisting of an eclectic mix of pop, jazz and light rock mixed with a few originals. A sample set would look something like this;

  • Sunny                             Bobby Hebb
  • Fly Me To The Moon         Sinatra
  • Love's in Need           Stevie Wonder
  • Love Will Keep Us Alive    Eagles

  • Since I Fell for You      Lenny Welch
  • Rainy Night in Georgia     Benton
  • Hello It's Me                      Rundgren 
  • Sammy's Song                     Kelley
  • Blue Bossa                          Dorham

A live performance consists of the duo accompanied by professionally pre-recorded instruments and background vocals. All instruments and vocals are either performed or programmed by David and/or Rob. The result sounds like and has the vibe of a much larger ensemble and maintains excellent fidelity at any volume
