Overview

Eric Heideman Band

Ever since Eric first picked up a guitar, the instrument captivated his heart and soul. The 20-year-old blues guitarists and singer has continued to be inspired by old and new blues musicians such as Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Ronnie Earl, Danielle Nicole, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Jonny Lang.

"Get Off My Back" is Eric's first full-length Album.

"The Crow Cries at Midnight" delves deep into Eric's personal life. "It's a song that's very close to my heart. I wrote it about a friend and bandmate who lost his life due to suicide a few years back. He ultimately inspired me to sing and to write my own music, and I felt it necessary to honor him on my first album."

"Outrun the Fire" concerns police violence towards African Americans. "I feel like as a country we could be in a better place when it comes to racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia. We all need to band together if something is to change in this world. No, I am not an African-American and I will never experience what it is like to be racially profiled but to actually experience change, we need to stand up with anyone who is oppressed and stand against racism and bigotry.

Many Eric Heideman fans claim that he has "an old soul" and "a stage persona perfect for the blues."

Dr. Bob

The Dr. Bob Band was founded in 1982 by Jeffrey Howrey and Bets Pott in Park City, Utah where the band remains headquartered to this day.

As one of the longest running Rocky Mountain rock bands ever, Dr. Bob has performed hundreds of times throughout the Intermountain West including appearances at the Utah Arts Festival and the Park City Arts Festival. Dr. Bob has opened concerts for such national acts as the Ramones, the Doobie Brothers, the Romantics, Huey Lewis and the News, Taj Mahal, Wet Willie, Delbert McClinton, and the Rave-Ups.

Dr. Bob's recently released "Men R Pigz" is the band's tenth album of all original material.

Jeffrey Howrey and Betsy Conner-Pott began playing music together in 1977 while both were students at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Bets soon joined Howrey's college group, the Barney Fife Band.
