The Story of Dovetail

John & Joreen Kelly

We met in high school, fell in love and have been partners ever since. We were musicians before we were a couple, and when we got together we began singing together, and have never stopped. We have been making music for all these years, separately and together, in other bands, choirs and living rooms and cars going down the road.


We use a keyboard, a guitar and two voices to entertain ourselves and anyone gracious enough to listen to us. Although we are officially baby-boomers and know the music of that generation, we have never stopped listening, learning and writing songs. We're just as comfortable doing music from the 90's, 80's and even the 30's, 40's and 50's. We cover artists such as James Taylor, Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel as well as Adele, Lady Antebellum and Steve Earle. We often perform "deep tracks" from popular artists and others who should be popular but are not yet. We excel at pleasing a crowd, and love the challenge of live requests. If we don't know a song yet, give us an Internet connection and a few minutes and we will learn it.

"Dear John & Joreen, Thank you again for performing at our annual awards ceremony for the PA Department of Community and Economic Development. Our attendees enjoyed your music and told me so on multiple occasions. Your song selection was spot on and you fit right in with the schedule of the event. Thank you also for the use of your PA system for the presentation. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable evening." - Sean
"We've had terrific feedback on Dovetail's performance at the holiday auction. Everyone loved your performance. Thank you so much for chosing some special numbers to go with our theme. You were just right for the occaision. Hopefully we'll have another time when we can invite you back. Thanks again! Happy holidays!" - Ellie Myers, RSVP

We were born to sing and to play together and we'd love nothing better than to sing and play for you. Call John Kelly, 717-979-2904 or email for booking information.
