The deep pocket grooves of drummer Barry Eldridge can be heard across an array of musical styles. His diverse skills cover wide territory: from high-intensity jazz-rock to world beat fusion and hip hop; from folk-grass Americana to one-drop reggae and second line and to backing a host of the region's top singer-songwriters, Barry’s ability to support the music and bring inspired playing to the stage has earned him a reputation as one of the most versatile and in-demand drummers in Northern California.
Riding momentum off their critically-acclaimed release “Garcia Songbook”, Barry continues work with Joe Craven & The Sometimers in 2019. After reaching #2 on the Relix Jambase radio charts, the quintet will continue to push their record (and the stylistic envelope) at festivals and venues nationwide.
The long anticipated trio release led by virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist Adrian Bellue takes flight in 2019. With backing from Candyrat Records, the Adrian Bellue Project will be forging their network of festivals and performances both at the national and international levels.
After yet another award-winning year, the Jessica Malone Band drives forward with the release of their new live album and an assurance to continue inspiring audiences at their shows. With her eclectic songwriting, magnetic vocals, and powerhouse backing band, Jessica’s live performances are not to be missed.
Having performed throughout North America at hundreds of venues and festivals with dozens of artists and bands, there is always something eclectic brewing in Barry’s creative cauldron. Keep tabs on his calendar to catch his next performance!
