Leadbetter Band Bio
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 Aaron Moore on Bass and vocals, and Kaleb Kelleher on Drum set. They focus mainly on original music, but the cover song choices are also all over the map of rock history. The first album, self titled, was released in 2019. Off the album are hard rock favorites like “Grand Misconception” and bluesy “Challenge Me”.
The second full length album, “Howl” was just released in 2021. Both albums had Patrick Pearsall on bass and Dylan Bernal on drums.
Leadbetter Band recently opened for the legendary ZZ Top at the Britt amphitheater in August 2021 which was an amazing experience!
The band is based out of Bend, Oregon and plays 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!
