EDDIE FROM OHIO APRIL 2022 EMAILER
HAPPY APRIL, EDHEADS
We're sorry we can't yell "April Fools" since last month's announcement, but alas, it's still true. Following our Edhead Cruise to Alaska in August, Eddie from Ohio will be stepping back from performing live indefinitely. Since we made the announcement, the outpouring of love and warm-wishes has been overwhelming. We truly appreciate all the kind words and memories you've shared with us. It has been a complete honor to be a part of your musical soundtracks over the years. Nothing moves us quite like knowing that for many of you, the EFO experience has been a family affair. Thank you for welcoming us into your lives.
We're also happy that there has been a spike in cruise signups, and if you haven't signed up, there's still time ... Deadline for final payment is May 3. More Edhead Cruise info below.

SPEAKING OF THE CRUISE....
EDHEAD 30TH ANNIVERSARY CRUISE AUGUST 2022
Here is a NEW letter that went out to all the Edheads Cruisers from Fan Club Cruises
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. And most of your questions can also be answered at the Edhead Cruise webpage -

JULIE: EN ROUTE TO A MASTERS DEGREE
Just the other week, EFO's own Julie Murphy Wells turned in her last assignment and requirement that completes her work toward her Masters Degree in Education. She has worked her butt off, all while teaching full-time and being a wife and mom. A big huzzuh to Jules, who is officially THE MOST HIGHLY EDUCATED MEMBER OF THE BAND!! -though that's probably been the case from the start.
MICHAEL CLEM's APRIL & SONGWRITING CLASS ON ZOOM NEXT TUESDAY!
EFO's Michael Clem will offer another Songwriting Class (on Zoom!) through The Front Porch in Charlottesville VA. The classes will happen every Tuesday evening (7pm EST). For more information https://michaelclem.com/event/songwriting-class-at-the-front-porch-4-weekly-sessions-online-16/

ROBBIE SCHAEFER INFORMATION...
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.

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.
EDDIE FROM OHIO WOLF TRAP VIDEO
In case you missed it, our friends at Wolf Trap released a live performance of your folk foursome for their "Park Pop-Ups" series. The video is still up for your viewing pleasure:
