Seventeen-year-old bass guitarist Paul Kelley, son of Donna Kelley of Crittenden, is heading to Nashville for what could be an important performance with Jetset Getset, the Greater Cincinnati-area band that has been attracting attention recently in the music industry.

The band, which was recently named by the Country Music Association on the list of “Who New to Watch in 2013,” is scheduled to perform a two-hour show at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, one of the most famous country-music nightclubs in Music City on March 1. The performance will take place during Country Radio Seminar (CRS), one of the biggest country music gatherings in Nashville of the year.

“CRS is a huge event that attracts radio and music industry people from all over the country,” said Kelli Jette, manager of Jetset Getset. “New bands always want to be seen in Nashville, but especially when CRS is going on. It’s an honor for us to be invited to perform at Tootsie’s.”

Jetset Getset recently released an album titled “Saturday Night,” which has received positive reviews. 

“It’s a lot of fun, being part of Jetset Getset,” Kelley said. “I love the social aspect of the band, meeting so many great musicians and playing live gigs. To be able to do something like this at the age of 17 is really amazing.”

His mother is proud of her son and all that he has accomplished so far.

“The whole journey has just been awesome. Paul absolutely loves playing. That’s his thing,” she said. A complete schedule is available on the group’s website at www.JetsetGetset.com and at www.reverbnation.com/jetsetgetset.
