"Groovy Smooth Guitar Grooves"

Eric Ellis is a solo instrumentalist currently performing rock and blues guitar music in southwest Florida.  Over the years, he has worked as lead guitarist with several national touring artists including ZZ's Best, Eric Stone, Jim Morris & the Big Bamboo Band, and the Ronnie Morgan Band. Eric has been writing and performing his original music in venues across the country for several years and has produced two CD's of his own.  Eric previously co-founded a country band that opened for dozens of national headliners including Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, Diamond Rio, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, and Gary Allan.   Heavily influenced by the Texas blues styles of Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Billy Gibbons, Eric honed his skills as a blues guitarist and became a sought after sideman.  Eric has worked with southwest Florida blues artists Lynn Richardson, and Danny Shepard’s Blue Mercury Band. "It’s wonderful to be teamed up again with my old friend of 25 years, Paul Jennings. Being brought on board ZZ’s BEST as “The Reverend Southwest Ellis” fits me like a glove" according to Eric. Eric is a native of Canada and graduate of Loyola College.
