Suncoast Emmy® Award-winning Belle and The Band combines masterful song-writing with instrumental prowess to deliver an acoustic sound that is thought provoking, melodic, and memorable. While Kathryn Belle Long's many years of experience as a professional vocalist and Walt Disney World performer has seamlessly transferred into prolific song-writer, the "Band" also includes some of Florida's most recognized and accomplished acoustic musicians -- Mickey Abraham, Kevin Robertson, and Mike Snelling. The results are meaningful songs with layered arrangements. Woven into their songs' worldly themes and eclectic sounds exists a clean pop sensibility, which explains why listeners easily fall in love with Belle and The Band.

Belle and The Band has performed at several premier roots music festivals in the southeast including Roots Revival, The Florida Folk Festival, Suwannee Springfest, Magnolia Fest, Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival, Baygrass Bluegrass Festival, Florida State Bluegrass Festival, Southern Music Rising, and Gamble Rogers Festival. 
In January of 2018, Belle and The Band's song "Tallahassee"was named as theWill McLean Best New Florida Song.
