Their musicianship and onstage energy have garnered numerous awards, including Best Blues Band (Westword), with EEF being awarded Songwriter of the Year at the CBS Members’ Choice Awards. As demonstratedontheir four albums, they bring a feel-good drive to blues, soul, Motown, New Orleans and a variety of original and cover tunes.
