EDDIE FROM OHIO'S MARCH 2020 EMAILER
HAPPY MARCH, EDHEADS!
We're not just marching in like a LION, we're stomping in like an entire PRIDE! As if our Cruise announcement for our 30th Anniversary in 2021 wasn't enough... take a looksie at that right hand column of gigs! You'd think we were bringing Harvey the RV out of retirement. The second half of 2020 is action-packed with actual EFO activity! So Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Connecticut, NYC, and of course our beloved Commonwealth - we're comin' your way... save those dates!
This EFO e-blast is full of band and solo news, so get out those reading glasses & proceed...
EDDIE FROM OHIO'S 30TH ANNIVERSARY CRUISE
SPECIAL INCENTIVE DEADLINE IS MARCH 3!
It's official, we're doing 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.
Here's the latest update - we actually have as many reservations presently as we've had TOTAL passengers on some of previous cruises. The response has been sensational! However, we don't have the entire ship to fill and our number is finite, so don't be left ashore - we want you on board!

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.
EFO 3 SONG SET CAPTURED ON VIDEO IN NYC
While we were at the ever-hospitable City Winery in New York City, we partook in one of their fine offerings: an intimate live video, professionally shot and edited called “Cellar Sessions, One on One”.
See the results for yourself on our video page
