Burnin' in Mount Vernon III
Eric Heatherly and the Chris Eger Band
returns to The Historic Lincoln Theatre on
Saturday, October 12, 2019 - 7:30pm
Two guitarslingers duel it out in a sequel to what was called by many as one of the best nights of 2018! Dubbed "Burnin' in Mount Vernon," this show promises to be bigger, better and once again a night long remembered. New songs, raffle giveaways and of course a show like only these guys can give!
A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Eric had paid his dues playing nightly for meager tips at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville. Shania Twain was sufficiently impressed with his chops to hire Heatherly to play lead guitar for her first world tour and to appear with her on the 1997 Country Music Association awards show. His years of dedicated effort were rewarded with a major label deal with Mercury Records that included a cover of The Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall", the first of three singles from his debut album Swimming in Champagne, His take on country with a surf-rock feel found its way to radio and TV, showing up on CMT, “Austin City Limits,” and “Grey's Anatomy.” Other laurels include receiving Music Row Magazine’s "Critic's Pick" award and being named in Playgirl Magazine as “sexiest singer.”
CEB is led by guitarist/vocalist Chris Eger, whose funky, blues guitar work and powerful tenor vocals are sure to excite. Eger is backed by bassist and father Randall Eger, who has over 35 years of live performance experience. Drummer, Mark Clark, is a veteran of the Northwest music scene, playing with the likes of the New Deal Rhythm Band and the Chryslers. Clark brings a solid, funky foundation to the group. Rick Jiles, keyboardist and leader of the local favorites "Midlife Crisis & the Alimony Horns," is a tasteful and scintillating addition to the rhythm section. Finally, Pete Kirkman and Mike West lend their talents as the noteworthy and eponymous Powerhouse Horns.
The evening will include The Record Store Troubadours; Special set by Eric and Lindsey Heatherly. Newly married and on the road with their new project the Record Store Troubadours.
