|Easy Eddie celebrates 25 years|
You won't find many bands nowadays consisting of 50-and 60-year olds going into the studio to record a new CD.
Then again, you won't find many bands like Easy Eddie and the Party Rockers, which is celebrating its 25th year of entertaining folks around the Miss-Lou as well as places in Florida, Texas and Illinois.
"I'm surprised we're still doing this," said Easy Eddie founding member and business manager Gary Caldwell. "I figured one of us would have died by now."
Vocalist and Ferriday Mayor Glen McGlothin expands on that.
"I never dreamed of still playing in a band," McGlothin said. "I think if one of us died on stage the others would not quit playing, They would just load him up after the show and carry him off."
Caldwell, who also serves as financial manager, driver, scheduler and promotions, said he cannot imagine not being on stage.
"Actually this is really keeping us alive," Caldwell said. "I feel real fortunate doing this and appreciate the opportunity to be able to do things. I think our longevity has a lot to do with camaraderie. And there are no egos in the bunch."
Since forming in 1985, Easy Eddie & the Partyrockers have performed in over 2,500 performances.
The band has been the opening act for such artists as Jerry Lee Lewis, Irma Thomas, Percy Sledge, The Edgar Winter Group, Leon Russell, Bad Company, Clarence Carter, and most recently The Little River Band.
