Eddie Clendening and the Blue Ribbon Boys

eddie clendening and the blue ribbon boys photo“Eddie Clendening brings with him over two decades of experience on the stage. Having appeared with early ROCK & ROLL greats like Scotty Moore, James Burton, Pat Cupp, Hayden Thompson, Billy Lee Riley, Earl Palmer, Dale Hawkins, Gene Summers, Jimmy Lee Fautheree, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and scores of others. Contemporary musicians are also taking notice of this explosive and handsome young front man for not only his vocals, but also his work on the electric guitar.

Eddie has toured extensively and successfully with his own backing group “The Blue Ribbon Boys” in not only the U.S. but Europe, Asia,

Australia, and elsewhere. He has also worked with other well-known groups such as Deke Dickerson’s Ecco-Fonics, Big Sandy, The Hi-Qs, Lloyd Tripp… the list goes on and on. He has been invited to perform at dozens of international music festivals, The Rockabilly Rave, Viva Las Vegas, Hemsby, Le Blues Autour du Zinc Rockabilly and so on… not only with his own combo but also as the vocalist for the reunion of “Go Cat Go”, one the largest selling roots ROCK & ROLL groups of the 90’s who tragically lost their singer in 1993.

He has appeared on several ad campaigns for fashion brands like W.H. Ranch Dungarees, J.S. Sloan, and Ralph Lauren. Coast to coast, prime time, and regional television programs such as, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The View, Today Show and more. He has also been a regular voice on various satellite/AM/FM/internet radio programs.

Eddie originated the role of and was featured as Elvis Presley in the hit Broadway musical “The Million Dollar Quartet”, where he performed 8 shows a week to packed houses racking up over 2200 performances! He also helped create and starred in the show “Heartbreak Hotel” that is currently the only Elvis Presley stage bio endorsed by the Elvis Presley estate, SONY Music and RCA and has had successful record breaking runs in Los Angeles, Ogunquit, Chicago, and Las Vegas. He’s continued to be seen on stage in plays and tribute shows to many of the other greats as well, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins to name a few. And he continues to be in demand wherever fans of ROCK & ROLL gather.

It seems Eddie is also beginning to get some much-deserved acclaim, thanks to the release of his four studio albums to date;

“Sometimes It Rains”, “Eddie Clendening Is… Walkin’ And Cryin’”, “Eddie Clendening Is… Knockin’ At Your Heart”, and “Eddie Clendening Is… The Rage Of The Teen-Age!”, as well as several singles and compilation inclusions.

He, along with The Blue Ribbon Boys continue to work hard spreading the gospel of genuine American ROCK & ROLL far and wide to anybody willing to listen.”

Ronnopiano Hosts Open Mic!

ronnopiano by michael gallagherHe’s Back!  Well, at least for a host gig and the Hold my Beer Band performance on Friday the 13th.  Ron Chilston lived here from 2005 into the pandemic years.  Ron is a keyboardist who will open with a couple of tunes then will coordinate all of the signups to perform.  Ask him to sit in and I bet he will!  Well, as long as he knows the tune you wish to play.

Ron and the Hold my Beer Band return every 6 months to perform here on the Spirit Room stage.

We hope to see you at open mic with your kazoo, mouth harp, flute or mandolin!  Whatever your instrument, (especially if it’s your voice), come on out to the Spirit Room and sign up for your open mic spot on the World-Famous Spirit Room stage!  Who knows what may happen in these three hours . . . musically anyway!
