EDDIE FROM OHIO's FEBRUARY 2020 EMAILER
HAPPY FEBRUARY, EDHEADS!
It's the shortest month with the BIGGEST NEWS! First, thanks to all who attended our near Sold-Out weekend at the Birchmere. We're already set for next year's MLK Weekend, which will celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Speaking of 30th Anniversary, we've already been forward-thinking about the grand occasion and have decided to celebrate in style with another EDHEAD CRUISE! This will mark our seventh, and ten years since our last one, which was for our 20th Anniversary. While the previous six took us around various ports of the Carribean, we're going for a change of scenery with a cruise to Alaska! This will be a 7-night roundtrip from Vancouver BC, August 8-15, 2021. This will be aboard Celebrity Cruise Line's Eclipse. By all accounts, every experiened artist & passenger we've spoken with have been over-the-moon about their Alaska cruise experience. Like our previous trips, we will be working with the fine folks at Fan Club Cruises, who have always done us right.
For all the details, please visit
Please know that there is a special incentive for bookings made by March 3, 2020.
Our anniversary date is still February 3, and on that date, a Sunday eve in 1991, our foursome now known as Eddie from Ohio played our first-ever performance at the Roratonga Rodeo in Arlington VA. Twenty-nine years later, we're still playing.

IN LOVING MEMORY, KATHERINE LOUISE BURLEIGH MURPHY, 1933-2020
The week before our Birchmere shows, we sadly said goodbye to Julie's mother, Kitty. Behind the wonderful voice of our band's siren, was a pair of two of the most supportive parents any performer could ever have. From our earliest beginnings in crowded & noisy Fairfax Mexican cantinas to the big stages of Wolf Trap, Joe & Kitty were always there, and truly became regal status - adored by all. Many are more than familiar with ole Joe's antics, but riding shotgun through it all was a tremendous, loving, patient, and beautiful woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and bandmom. We love you to the moon and back, Kitty!

EDDIE FROM OHIO’S 1992 LIVE! AT THE BIRCHMERE CASSETTE RE-RELEASED!
Our first recording was a cassette - looong out of print, but it’s NOW AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD!
On April 14, 1992, EFO took part in the WAMA Crosstown Jam. Our multi-act showcase was at The Birchmere in Arlandria VA (its legendary 2nd location directly on Mt Vernon Ave, blocks from the current locale). The wonderful house sound engineer, Billy Wolf, honored our request to make a board tape of our set. We couldn't believe the results of his beautiful mix, and decided to make a cassette for sale at our shows - a tape we referred to as "The 6 Pack". We moved a whole bunch of units at 5 bucks each, and it marked the beginning of growing our audience around our original music, and not just our covers. It also marked the beginning of an incredible relationship with Billy, who essentially took us under his wing, mentored us, and worked with us in earnest in the studio (producing 8 albums!) as well as other live projects. BOOya, Billy!
This recording has been out of circulation for some time, but a recent discovery of a fairly clean copy inspired us to make it available again. Hear us in all our infant glory (two acoustic guitars & hand percussion -- as well as Robbie on some killer guirro on track 5).
Go back in time to the days of Robbie's fanny pack, Mike's mullet, Eddie's dashiki, & Julie's midi dress w/combat boots. No pictures, just audio. You'll simply have to "imagine us" while you listen.
