Blues, Brews & BBQ Menu

 

Very few musicians are said to be extraordinary examples of excellence in any one genre of music. Even fewer can be described as exceptional across multiple genres. Chris Eger fits into the latter category as both a guitarist AND a vocalist, an especially rare gift. The band’s high-energy performances always pleases crowds and are constant signatures of what the cast brings. The band is tight, fun and dishes out plenty of soul! It’s no wonder they constantly attract new fans as well as amaze longtime followers.

 

Written and recorded in Nashville with Chris’ guitar hero, Eric Heatherly, as producer – The CEB’s latest offering “Show Me Where to Sign” is a breath of fresh air in a prepackaged, fast-food type of music landscape. It features tunes penned by Eric, Chris, Nashville Blues great – Stacy Mitchhart, as well as co-founder of Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, MS – Gary Vincent. Notable musicians include world renowned vocalist extraordinaire – Bekka Bramlett, Rock & Roll HOF inductee – Double Trouble’s Reese Wynans and some of the most prolific studio players in Nashville. This high-energy record blends straight electric blues with blue-eyed soul, Hendrix-inspired classic rock and horn-infused funk. It is a fresh take on vintage guitar music for the 21st Century!

 

A bonafide “quadruple threat,” Eger is a multi-instrumentalist, accomplished songwriter and kick-butt showman, as well as a sensational vocalist for which he has been nominated three years in a row for Best Male Vocalist by the Washington Blues Society. Chris is backed by bassist and father Randall Eger, who has over 35 years of live performance experience. Drummer Mark Clark is a veteran of the Northwest music scene, playing with the likes of the New Deal Rhythm Band and the Chryslers. Clark brings a solid, funky foundation to the group and always delivers. Rick Jiles, keyboardist and leader of the local favorites Midlife Crisis & the Alimony Horns, is a tasteful and scintillating addition to the rhythm section. Finally, Pete Kirkman and Mike West lend their talents as the noteworthy and eponymous Powerhouse Horns.
