Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays

Where
NOMA Square - 220 N Main St, Greenville, SC 29601 [ Map ]
Description
Eric Weiler is a blues influenced guitarist /singer /songwriter who was born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia. Now an adopted son of Greenville, SC Eric has enjoyed tenure in the past 7 years playing with The Dirty Audibles, The Big Jar of Jamm, and now The Eric Weiler Group. September 7th 2013 marked the release of Eric's first solo album New Day. The album is a mixture of rock, catchy pop choruses, and memorable roots songs all sprinkled with a little bit of that blues guitar style he has become known for. Songs like "Home To Me" bring back a little of that 90's college rock vibe, "Falling For You" is a tip of the hat to a gentlemen we all know as Eric Clapton, "A Million Miles" takes you on a 3:00 am ride on an open highway and "Fade Away" will take you back to the old days while closing out with a touch of that southern gospel sound. The Eric Weiler Group includes many of the areas most talented musicians. Kebin Ahrens (The Jaywalkers/Honey and The Hotrods) is known throughout the area as a go to bass player when it comes time to laying down the grooves. Matt Morgan (Red Against Green/Smash The Radio) of Sit-N-Spin Studios really needs no introduction. Matt rounds out with the group on second guitar. Kevin Mavis drums/percussion, is an amazing in demand drummer here in the Upstate and also plays with Mountain Homes and The Frankness. In one minute The Eric Weiler Group can conjure up the vibe of B.B. King, morph the sound into a Clapton-esque vibe and then eerily summon the soul of Jimi Hendrix lighting up the stage every time. The band's repertoire includes unforgettable originals as well as pulling out their own style on some old numbers. If you dig the blues, if you dig the guitar, you're going to love listening to the Eric Weiler Group!
