Sean Kelly & Tom Askin of The Samples performing an intimate acoustic show
The Samples are more than a band – they represent a culture of fans and music that go beyond who happens to be playing in the band at any given time. Based out of Boulder, CO, this alternative rock group infused with reggae, pop and folk influences have been selling out venues for over 25 years.
Sean Kelly, founder, songwriter and lead singer of The Samples, has been delighting fans for decades with music that transcends genres, age and shatters the rules of the established music industry. With his crisp, melodic, ethereal vocals and unique fluid guitar playing, Sean’s signature sound remains current and engaging.
Tom Askin, a seasoned music industry veteran, performed as a touring and recording musician for 15 years with his folk-rock group Alaskan before joining The Samples. The owner and chief sound engineer of PonderRosa Studios, located in Sussex County, Tom has played with local favorites including Patrick Fitzsimmons and Denny Tilton.
