Biography

Bill Eaton always wanting to play the blues in clubs but, could never seem to find a band that wanted to do the same. One christmas Bill bought his nephew Geoff Eaton a bass guitar. Well geoff recieved his training by on the job training as Bill took him where ever he could find a drumer to play with. Soon enough Geoff was playing well and The ESBB was on thier way. Several personel changes with musicians coming and going The ESBB now has a winning combination. Tom Collins on Blues harp and Steve Fortuna rounding out the rythym section on drums. We now have a large song list we think is both entertaining as well as virsitile. "With enough songs that it's no telling what we might do" according to Bill. "We might be doing Robert Johnson or Son House one minute and the next we could do a song by Waylon Jennings or The Talking heads. We cover a lot of ground". This is true as I have witnessed seeing these guys play on consectutive nights and they do two almost different song lists. I never get tired of these songs.
