GREETINGS, EDHEADS!


A big thank you to all who attended our two of three Birchmere shows. With Omicron concerns and winter weather obstacles, we're still grateful to have pulled off what we did, for as the late Meatloaf sang " 'cause two out of three ain't bad."

We're also really pleased to get such a favorable mention in the new book "All Roads Lead To The Birchmere: America's Legendary Music Hall". Co-author and Birch owner Gary Oelze came backstage to give us all signed copies. This huge volume is a wonderful account of this great venue's illustrious 50 year plus history..... a venue we are honored to call home. Big thanks to Gary and writing partner, Stephen Moore for including us. Be sure to get your own copy. https://www.amazon.com/All-Roads-Lead-Birchmere-Legendary/dp/1647189683


On February 3, we celebrate 31 years as a band. Let's all meet at Baskin-Robbins for a proper celebration.

In the meantime, for more EFO related news, read on...

EDHEAD 30TH ANNIVERSARY CRUISE MOVED TO 2022

Here is a NEW letter that went out to all the Edheads Cruisers from Fan Club Cruises

Hey Edheads,

It’s time to celebrate our 30th(+1) anniversary in grand style. Most of you know that we had planned a 30th anniversary cruise for this August and had to move that to Aug 2022. And if you didn’t know, you do now!

Alumni of prior Edhead cruises know how unique an experience this is; and for our 30th anniversary celebration, we’re making it even more special by going to a true bucket list destination—Alaska! We’ll 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.

And there’s a special surprise opportunity in Juneau that we’ll announce a few months before the cruise. We promise it’s something you won’t want to miss!

Cabins are still available at $1459pp plus tax. And those rates include the classic beverage package, wifi and pre-paid gratuities. That’s over $700pp in free extras!

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 COMING TO RVA FEB 5 FOR 'LEGENDS ON GRACE' SHOW

(From Robbie):
Hi. Heading to Richmond, VA Sat, Feb.5 for a very special evening sponsored by Richmond Performing Arts Alliance . Would enjoy seeing your shining punum (or half of it--the show is vaxxed and masked). If you live elsewhere or aren't comfortable being in-person, you can choose the "on-demand" ticket option. Your host of hosts - Daniel Clarke.
Either way: Richmond Performing Arts Alliance is offering $10 off all ticket options! Use the code RUSH for In-Person tickets and RUSHOD for On-Demand tickets.



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)

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.
