Eastern City Blues are a 4 piece band whose influences range from the Allman Brothers to ZZ Top and everyone one in between. Their music is dynamic and melodic and draws heavily on songs that groove and swing, perfect for dancing and entertaining the most discerning blues aficionado.
From the laid back JJ Cale, the folk stylings of Neil Young and Van Morrison, the late 60's UK driven blues sound and sweet Chicago soul into the tight groove driven southern rock bands of the 70's, ECB with their twin guitar, Hammond lineup can move from barn storming rockers back to sweet soul gospel.
Sets are designed for the venue, clientele and the occasion to ensure the night is always an event.
ECB can supply professional sound, lighting and all equipment to take the worry away from the venue depending on the requirements.
