Take a good dose of rock, mix it up with some downhome blues, and you have Eddie and the Heifers, bringing you the best of both worlds.
Eddie and the Heifers is on a mission to bring you the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Bonamassa and George Thorogood, together with some of the older blues guys like Elmore James, Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters. Throw in some classic rock tunes from Bad Company, Free and ZZ Top and you have a recipe for sonic heaven!
Eddie and the Heifers features some great musicians including guitarist Rob Ransom and a killer rhythm section led by bassist Eddie Boys and seasoned Hilton Head drummer David Carroll. The band's frontman is Donny Schlieger on lead vocals, and Matt Di Benedetto fills out the sound on harp and keyboards - come out and hear us at a venue near you in 2019!
Our first gigs are now rolling in. Come over to Daufuskie Island to see us during May and June, and Fat Patties in Bluffton in July. More gigs being added all the time so watch out - the Heifers are coming!
Eddie and the Heifers? Where the heck did that come from? The band had its origins in Royal Blues Machine based in San Diego. When Rob moved to Hilton Head in 2014, he reformed RBM with some great local musicians including bassist Eddie Boys. After some personnel changes the band was looking at alternative names and Eddie and the Heifers was first mentioned as a joke. The funny thing was - everyone liked the name! So now Eddie has opened up the cowshed and there is no turning back.
