About Street Party
Street Party is comprised of three friends who first met in 1980, played together for a while and then went their own way. Fast forward to present day, and thanks to Face Book, Kelly, Chris, and Jeff reconnected and decided it was time to get back together again as a group.
We believe that music is an important part of life. We are three guys who enjoy making good music together and are very happy that we are able to share the music we create with you.
Meet the Guys……..
Kelly Craver – Guitars/Vocals
Kelly has been playing guitar for more years than anyone can count. He has been writing and performing original songs for decades.

Kelly plays guitar, mandolin, harmonica, bass guitar, piano and will from time to time has been known to hit drums to keep time with life.
Chris Fowler – Bass Guitar/Vocals
Chris’ love of music began by imitating the bass playing style of Gene Simmons. He joined the jazz band in high school where he quickly learned to read music. Soon afterward, he teamed up with a couple of older guys and became a part of Street Talk. From there, Kelly and Chris joined forces with the cover band Zerox. Twenty-five years after Chris laid down his guitar; he has now picked it back up and has been playing and rehearsing with former members of Street Talk. A year later he’s back into laying down those smooth bass grooves.
Jeff Lewallen – Percussion/Vocals
Jeff joined the school band in the 6th grade and hasn’t stopped drumming to this day. He played in the Jazz band in high school where he met Chris and also played in several triad bands in the later 70's and early 80's including Harvest and later Street Talk where he met Kelly. Classical, Jazz, Rock, Country, no matter the genre, he has enjoyed listening and performing a variety of music over the years and doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon.....
