EDDIE FROM OHIO JUNE 2022 EMAILER


HAPPY ROBBIE SCHAEFER'S BIRTHDAY, EDHEADS


Yep, today is our own Robbie's lap around the sun anniversary. To celebrate this great occasion, be sure to check out the information below about his "Light Years" stage musical becoming a motion picture! (details below)

As we mentioned three months ago, following our Edhead Cruise to Alaska in August, Eddie from Ohio will be stepping back from performing live indefinitely. We truly appreciate all the kind words and memories you've shared with us.

If you'd like to part of our last hurrah before stepping away, there's still time ... and while we announced the deadline for signups was May 3, our fine travel coordinator has alerted us that the Celebrity Cruise ship have notified us that they still have room for more. We're very pleased, that presently, we have more Edheads signed up to sail than any of the previous six cruises. It's gonna be a blast! Please join us!

THE CRUISE: MORE ROOM FOR SIGN UPS....

EDHEAD 30TH ANNIVERSARY CRUISE AUGUST 2022

Here is the latest word for all the Edheads Cruisers from Fan Club Cruises

Hey Edheads,

As we've mentioned before, following our Edhead Cruise to Alaska in August, Eddie from Ohio will be stepping back from performing live indefinitely. And while the official deadline of May 3 has passed, as of press time, the cruise ship still has some space available.

If you'd like to part of our last hurrah before stepping away, go to the Edhead Cruise webpage -
https://fanclubcruises.com/event/eddie-from-ohio-alaska-experience

Alumni of prior Edhead cruises know how unique an experience this is; and we’re making it even more special by going to this true bucket list destination! We sail roundtrip out of Vancouver and visit Sitka, Juneau and Ketchikan. We’ll sail through the gorgeous Inside Passage twice and also visit the incredible Hubbard Glacier.

We hope you can join us for this once-in-a-lifetime experience! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Donald at Fan Club Cruises. His email is donald@d2demand.com. And most of your questions can also be answered at the Edhead Cruise webpage.

ROBBIE SCHAEFER BIRTHDAY & LIGHT YEARS: THE MOVIE

Years ago (maybe not light years), but years ago, Robert Daniel Schaefer was born at Columbia Hospital in Washington DC on this day, May 26. Many songs, many shows, many albums, a musical or two, and a movie later, here he is! Wait, did that last sentence say "movie"? Why, yes, yes it did. Did you know that Robbie's highly-acclaimed stage musical is becoming a movie? Why yes, yes it is. You can read more about this exciting project by checking out the brand new website:
https://lightyearsthemovie.com/

More from Robbie:
I have a new PODCAST. It's called Walk With Me and what happens is I take walks and you . . . well, you walk with me. Virtually. Figuratively. And I talk and play music since I'm good at both those things.
Here's a link to a FREE one. If you like it, there's plenty more where that came from on my
Patreon
page. You can hear 'em all (and get other exclusive music and goodies) for just $10 a month.
WALK WITH ME (Ep.2): Flight Club
(p.s. that's an olive in my mouth because I love them)

JULIE'S LIL MAN!

Can you believe that Julie's lil man Liam has just graduated from college?!? As pictured up above in cap & gown, and far from the littlest man in the photo, Liam Wells crossed the finish line with flying colors this past weekend at Longwood University in Farmville VA. The Force is strong with this one, and we know he'll take the job market by storm with any endeavor he chooses. Younger bro Corey is not far behind over at James Madison University in Harrisonburg (also alum to 75% of EFO, as well as soundman Bob. Good School. Good School). Slainte, Wells Lads!

NORTH PACIFIC RAIN ON YOUTUBE

THE SUMMER ELVIS DIED...
Wrote a song about it. On 16 August 1977, Elvis did, in fact, die. It's the opening track of our 1993 album, Actually Not - "North Pacific Rain" which opens with that Elvis line. Our apologies to the Edheads who have let us know the live stream platforms truncate the mp3 version of NPR. While we attempt to get that problem corrected, here's a YouTube link of "North Pacific Rain (The Summer Elvis Died)" in all its uninterrupted glory. Thanks to the great Billy Wolf for his production, and Rest In Peace, Mr. Mike Auldridge - your dobro work is heaven on earth.

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.
