The Eldridge Band
The Eldridge Band is an all original Southern Rock, Soul and Funk band based in Denver, CO. The core members of the band are from South Carolina, Mississippi, and Brazil, all meeting together in Colorado through frequent visits to Guitar Center and in the music scene. With a shared love of analog and the blues, they are currently recording their first album at Muscle Shoals Fame Studios. The band members are: Jon Eldridge on keys, B3, vocals and guitar, lead guitar, Jami McNeill on vocals and bass, Will Morrison on drums and percussion, and Pedro Abdalla on vocals, guitar and lead guitar. The first release is a song titled “My Home” which pays homage to the southern rock Americana style and is about the positive transition from a native land to another place for the better. It paints a picture of a love of two places and a freedom of choice. The Album “Someway, Somehow” will be released in 2018 featuring 10 original songs that vary from Funk and R&B, Soul and blues, Americana and southern rock, and even a British infusion. Keep an ear out for The Eldridge Band in 2018.

Most recently, the addition of guitarist Joel Cheney and Joe Lilly on saxophone has even furthermore contributed to the group's dynamic.

It’s a commonly held belief that the mind and body must work together to accomplish life’s tasks, large or small. Whether it’s getting dressed, cooking dinner, or pursuing a dream, the way we put the pieces together determines the outcome. Connections become the all important matrix of our desire. Brian Bourgault was going about the business of his daily life as a guitar player and owner/operator of Curtis Park Music, a musical instrument store in Denver, when his body suddenly stopped making a routine connection. A year later, at age 33, he was diagnosed with an untreatable, progressive neurological disease. That was 2005. Now, twelve years since that fateful day, Brian has been reunited with his passion, making music, and there is no stopping his renewed determination. While physically limited in his ability to play music, he’s found that creating it comes as much from the heart as the hands. When life restricts mobility, the energy of the mind and heart have proven to be a powerful force in resurrecting the purpose that lies within the soul. With every blow that threatens to kill his spirit, Brian continues to get up and walk bravely down the path he finds himself on, letting music lead the way.
