The bulk of EB Fraley gigs are private events, so there isn't much "press", but here's what the client's have to say -

Eric’s performance was the highlight of our CEO retreat – the perfect way to wrap up our weekend at the Bacara Resort.
-Sterling Lanier, Chairman, The Executive Committee

We took a big risk hiring a band that 10,000 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference attendees had never heard of. But the EB Fraley band blew everyone away. In fact, the response was so overwhelming that we had to bring them back the following year! EB even wrote a custom song each year to match the theme of our conferences, which had a lasting impact with our partners and staff.
-Allison Watson, Vice President, Partner Sales and Marketing Group, Microsoft Corp.

I’ve hired Eric Fraley for several events and projects for companies like AT&T, DHL, Wall Data, and Russell Investments, to name a few. He always exceeds expectations and impresses everyone who hears him.
-Jim Angelo, Partner, Maverick Productions / Touch Worldwide

We’ve had Eric Fraley at many corporate events. The last time he played for us, our crowd was having such a good time that we asked him to stay an extra hour, and he was able to be there for us. It doesn’t matter if you’re twenty-one or fifty-eight, Eric’s tune selection and arrangements will strike a chord with everyone. I only get rave reviews from people that attend functions he entertains for, and that’s why he’s our first choice when we want live music.
-Derek Morris, A.J. Kirkwood

The EB Fraley band was the perfect fit for the show I was producing for the Travel Channel. His music is terrific.
-Keith Cornell, TV producer

Eric was without a doubt the most popular component of our corporate reception. He has an amazing voice, is a gifted guitarist, and has a very personable demeanor. His music definitely and positively influenced the atmosphere of the evening... This is the 2nd event we have hired Eric for, and - based on the comments we continually receive on how much everyone enjoys his music and presence - it will not be the last.
-Debbie Sanders, GlaxoSmithKlein

Eric did an outstanding job! He was very professional, but more importantly... he was great. Everyone enjoyed his music & talent. We received a number request for his contact info after the party. I would absolutely recommend Eric to anyone trying to add the perfect touch to their event.
-Cody S, LAFD, Glendale, CA

Eric was absolutely wonderful … his performance was nothing short of outstanding!
-Deborah S, Santa Ynez, CA

EB was a terrific addition to our annual corporate holiday party this year. He was very professional and is an extremely talented performer. He has a great voice and is a wonderful guitarist ... I would definitely hire him again in the future. Thanks, EB!
-April Rotondi, ILFC

Eric was just fabulous! I have yet to send out my post-event survey to my convention attendees and exhibitors but from what I've been hearing, everyone just loved him. Many folks were coming up to me and asking where I found him...very cool. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone!!!
- Sherry Hall , California Association of Health Facilities

I want to host another event just so EB can be there!! He was wonderful!
-Denise C, Visalia, CA

He's the best!!! He was the hit of our event and people stood in line to tell him how great he was and to get his card for themselves. We are now HUGE fans of his!!!!!!!!!

Bio

EB Fraley picked up a guitar at the tender age of fourteen, and he hasn't put it down since. Well, not literally, but EB without a guitar in hand is like a poet without a pen.

"I didn't know you could play guitar like THAT!"
-Jimmy Stafford, guitarist for Grammy Award-winning band Train, to Fraley after the EB Fraley band opened for Train

There's a lot more to EB Fraley's music than just virtuoso guitar work, as his new album "Becoming Nothing" demonstrates. You'll find moving poetry in songs like "Sunshine," a glimpse of his blues roots in "Along for the Ride", and even some rare piano and Rhodes work on "All About the Money."

"It's like, he's back."
- Overheard from an audience member at a Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute concert in Santa Cruz, California

Born and raised in California, EB Fraley began playing piano and guitar as a child, inspired by a diversity of influences, from Stevie Ray Vaughan to AC/DC, from The Beatles to Duran Duran. While still in his teens, he was a regular at blues clubs all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Wanting to branch out, Fraley hit the road for half a year just months after his 18th birthday, and never looked back.

"A tasty blend of blues and pop."
- San Francisco Examiner

Now, over a thousand shows later, and having played in hundreds of cities in more than 30 states, Fraley's accomplishments include:

• Six independently released albums.

• Original songs and live performances for the corporate events of some of the world�s most prestigious companies, including Microsoft, DHL, AT&T, and Wall Data.

• Producer credits for Grammy Award-nominated artists like Tanya Tucker and Ty Herndon, and for numerous rising stars, including Sara Haze, Chelsea Lena, Tyrone Wells, Raining Jane, Scott �Twitch� Anderson, Levi Kreis, Waylon Payne, Evanne Riskas, Emily Jaye, Noah Needleman, James Hamilton, Tonya Watts, Dave Sorrendino, TJ Stafford, and Aimee Osbourne (to name just a handful).

• Vocal and guitar work on dozens of songs featured on television shows and advertisements, including MTV's Newlyweds, CBS's The Young and the Restless, The WB's High School Reunion, ABC's One Life to Live, commercials for the Yamaha "Star" line of motorcycles, Fox's 30 Seconds of Fame, CBS' Star Search, ABC's All My Children, CBS's Jag, The WB's Charmed, and NBC's Passions (domestic & international).

"Fraley has enough talent to go all the way to the top"
- Doug Aley, Stanford Concert Network

In 2002, EB Fraley and Evanne Riskas, performing as the duo "57 Views", won UCLA's Spring Sing Best Overall and Best Duet for the performance of their song "Someone Has to Be" (past Best Overall winners include Sara Bareilles, Tyrone Wells, and Raining Jane).

Recently, EB has been out performing songs from his album "Becoming Nothing" everywhere from Minneapolis (where he opened for the legendary B-52s). to Boston (opened for Grammy Award winners Train), and all over California.

"He puts on one mean show."
- Bridget Harcey, CSM
