ABOUT THE BAND:
After years of playing desert blues in Austin, TX, Earl has found a home in Colorado with a group of great musicians that move freely through genres to make for a unique lively rolling sound. Earl Nelson & the Company have emerged to create a funky blend of Mississippi delta blues, Mo-town soul, and bluegrass country. The band infuses blues banjo, jazz keys, funky basslines, and heavy percussion to back Earl's gritty vocals and slide guitar. With a large helping of gospel blues riffs and New Orleans piano solos, their live sound turns any stage into an old-fashioned juke joint.
