Evan Ryan Band

Evan Ryan Band

BandPopAcoustic

"The Acoustic Jukebox." Ever wondered what Top 40 Radio would sound like performed live by a singer/acoustic guitar player and an electronic drummer? Throw in a few top-shelf original songs and you have an Evan Ryan Band show. A real rock'n'roll show, for those who still care about live music.

Biography

We are the band that every musician envies.

Imagine:
1) Your drummer is your girlfriend who just happens to have years of experience and great timing.

2) You get to play ANY song you've ever wanted to play but couldn't because your macho band mates refused to play Cher

3) Total melodic control. If, in the middle of a song, you feel like changing to another song, changing words, melodies, chord progressions; you just do it! All Along the Watchtower ends up as Stairway to Heaven or What is Love ends up as Ridin' Dirty, it's anyone's guess.

The Evan Ryan Band plays nothing but amazing material. If an original song is written that stands up to the arsenal of Top 40 cover songs, it is included into the live show.

As a performing band, there are no influences, no style or technique biting; we are entirely original. There is no formula, no predetermined poses or movies, just two people with tremendous talent. And if you look away from the stage for a moment, it's like you're listening to an MTV Unplugged record... with 808's thrown in.
