About your musicians: Texas guitar legend Ace The Gambler has been thrilling audiences and laying down perfect boot scootin' music for decades. He received his first guitar as a gift at age 6 when his grandfather, Johnny Anthony, presented him with his own personal 1950 Martin. Fame and talent run in the family. Johnny Anthony played rhythm guitar and toured with Western Swing sensation Spade Cooley. Raised and trained by his grandfather and all of his professional music associates, Ace began touring at the age of 14 and has never slowed down. He has opened for a multitude of national and regional artists, performed on countless albums and has been a professional sound technician for 30 years. He has shared stages with a vast array of artists such as Redd Volkhaert, Steve Wariner, Waylon Jennings, T. Graham Brown and Gene Watson. His trademark guitar is a 1999 Nashville Deluxe Telecaster B-Bender, specifically crafted for him and signed by Merle Haggard. Ace lovingly named this guitar Miss Kitty and she has achieved a following all her own. Ace The Gambler is known for his entertaining stage presence, his remarkable guitar riffs and his pitch perfect harmonies. International recording artist Kelly Kingston was raised in San Angelo, Texas, and is the daughter of Texas Piano Man David Kingston. A documented child prodigy, Kelly started with formal training in violin and piano and from age 4 to 9 competed in fiddle contests all over Texas. It was about this age when Kelly was bitten by the bass fiddle bug. She began touring with her dad at 9 and progressed through the San Angelo school district's award winning orchestra programs under the direction of Fred Handley and David Phillips. Kelly performed in the “All City”, “All Region” and “All State” Orchestras throughout. At 13 years of age, Kelly auditioned for and was accepted to the San Angelo Symphony and also performed in the Abilene Philharmonic, Big Spring Symphony, Temple Symphony, Midland/Odessa Symphony and became a studio musician for Angelo Civic Theater and the Angelo State University Theater Dept. She toured with the ASU Jazz Band and has played for orchestras all over the western half of Texas. Kelly has been the vice president of the San Angelo Blues Society since 2007, is a regular with the National Cowboy Symposium and was recently a hit at the State Fair of Texas. She has toured and recorded all over the US, Canada and Mexico. A few more of Kelly’s notable accomplishments include performing with Michael Martin Murphy when she was 15, filling in with the Time Jumpers (Vince Gill's band) in Nashville, getting a standing ovation at the cowboy church of Nashville, playing in the church band for world renowned ministers Monte Stephens and Janice Brown in Jefferson City, TN and playing the State Fair of Texas with the Cowtown Opry. She has had two appearances at the Grand Ol' Opry alongside John Conlee and George Hamilton 4. She has also performed on Austin City Limits. Kelly is a regular at the national cowboy symposium in Lubbock, Tx, performing with Billy Cate, Scott and Leigh Ann Matthews, Devon Dawson, Royce Smithey, the Gillette Brothers, David Waddle and countless others and has played for George W. Bush once before he was president. She is currently touring and performing across the US with Texas legend Ace the Gambler, providing well polished classic country dance music with a band made up of the top professionals in their fields. Kelly’s main instrument is a custom 5 string upright bass, one of the rarest instruments in the US.
