Jonn Kelly

"I play rock, metal and modern music and the Bartolini tone complements me and my bass perfectly.  My Bartolini bridge pickup on my Traben adds that little extra something you just can’t get with other brands.  Couldn’t be more happy with trusting my sound to Bartolini."

Jonn is high energy touring and recording bassist from Syracuse, NY. He has been rocking a bass for the last decade and is currently in the metal band LEVEL VII (New York) and hard rock/punk band DogHouse Swine (New Jersey).  He sings backup/harmonies and is constantly practicing and learning new material for both the road shows and the latest releases.  Doghouse Swine just picked up a new record deal with SLIPTRICK Records and will be headed to Brazil in 2019 for a tour.  He plays across the country, sharing his high energy show and love of music. “There’s nothing more that I’d rather be doing than playing out live in front of real music fans.”
