Eric Leadbetter's Most Recent Band
Leadbetter Band was born after the final closing chapters of Jive Coulis in the early winter of 2017. In a sense it was a “re-branding” of Jive Coulis. Eric was the songwriter and frontman for Jive, and that is still the case with Leadbetter Band. His original songs played in LB are vast and diverse, from a classic rock sound to bluesy heavy jam sections featuring the Bands unique improv abilities.
The rhythm section is pro and tight featuring Patrick Pearsall on Bass and back up vocals, and Dylan Bernal on Drum set. They focus mainly on original music, but the cover song choices are also all over the map of rock history. Their first album, self titled, was released in 2019. Off the album are hard rock favorites like “Grand misconception” and bluesy “challenge me”.
Their second full length album, “howl” will be released in summer 2021!
The band is based out of Bend, OR and plays live shows around the Pacific Northwest entertaining and captivating music hungry listeners. Leadbetter Band delivers a stunning and engaging live performance that is not to be missed.
A fun addition to Eric's solo music is another player! Eric plays duo shows with several different musicians on different instruments. It is such a fun time to mix it up and invite different folks to jump in! Friends like:
