Eli Cook


Sunday April 28 at 7pm

What do you do when you can play straight blues or Hendrix style hard rock with equal ease and finesse?

A Virginia native, Eli was raised on a strict diet of blues, rock and with a slice of grunge. His guitar work and powerful vocals are moody but very dynamic in delivery that will cause a musical whiplash.

“With his fittingly pockmarked voice and virility on guitars, Eli Cook sizes up the old blues music he so clearly values.” – Downbeat Magazine

Eli comes from the crossroads of blues, the highways of rock and the backroads of country, and with his gritty voice, there ain’t nothing like it. His guitar prowess includes pickin’, slidin’, and strummin’ from a Fender to a National Resonator Tri-Cone; he amazes the traditionalists and scares the modern players.

Born and raised at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA, Eli started young, and by the time he was 18, he was playing church revivals, “juke-joints” and opening up for B.B. King, Johnny Winter, and Robin Trower. He’s spending the good part of these past three years playing live, solo or with his power trio.

Press has been kind to Eli, from Guitar Player to No Depression to Elmore to Blues Music Magazine as well as Maverick overseas and many more. He’s a delight on the radio interviews, and of course, live shows are where Eli piles on the food on plates for his listeners.
