The Eric Tessmer Band is a blues band from Austin, Texas. They started the second leg of their tour right here in Bethlehem, PA. I had the opportunity to watch their sound check, and then sit down with them in the green room for an interview before the show. It was cool! They are very talented, and are building quite a following with each stop of their tour. We talked about life on the road, some of the greats that Eric has shared the stage with, and their upcoming tour stops in India. We also talked about some of their past band experiences, their influences, and the Austin music scene. I read online that you have to see this band live. I can tell you that the rumors are true! The energy is incredible to experience. Words cannot describe Eric's playing. He pays respect to the players that have influenced him, but the style is all his. Danny G's bass playing is tighter than three coats of paint, and Rob beats those drums like they owe him money. Put it all together, and you get the ultimate live experience. If they are anywhere near you on this tour, you have to come out and see for yourself!
