May 29 Kelly Zullo / Funk-slap-hammer-on acoustic guitar

Guitar World Magazine calls her music "An energetic acoustic guitar assault by this skilled, funky speed demon." Zullo approaches the ‘one man band set’ with a focused frenzy on the acoustic guitar technique and songs they are centered around. A standout from many one-individual shows, Zullo slaps and picks her acoustic at lightning speeds, weaving in and out of the loops on live drums she played just moments earlier. Her feet simultaneously play the bass via midi foot pedals.
