Eric, Jeff, Mike and Steve came together to do Beatles tunes, primarily from their psychedelic era, onward. Bringing together our musical sensibilities from jam bands, jazz, and various styles of rock, we agreed to NOT just be another Beatles cover band. We don't wear Beatles clothes or uniforms and we definitely don't wear wigs.
Instead, in the spirit of the Beatles experimental approach, we decided to change some of the arrangements and instrumentation, add some extra solos, extend certain songs into improvised jams, and creatively incorporate different sounds and effects.
The name Eleanor Walrus was chosen because just about every Beatles lyric worth using has been taken by the countless Beatles cover bands out there. But it also reflects our enjoyment of juxtaposing disparate elements and creating something a little off the beaten path. All of this we do with great love and appreciation for the Beatles brilliant and timeless songwriting.
We invite you to come and check us out. Like the Beatles, we figure to gradually evolve over time, and so will the material.
