Our History and Philosophy...

Follow Us On:


East Coast Rhythm & Blues (ECRB), formed in the Fall of 2009, is based out of Spring Hope, NC and continues to be one of the most sought after beach music/variety bands.   ECRB continues to impress everywhere they play and are proud to make your event extra special!  We do it LIVE ... no tracks or canned music for us!


ECRB is the quintessential component to an unforgettable evening out on the town, at a private event, or partying at a festival! There are no individual "stars" in this beach music band, but there is a ton of "stellar" talent! It's precisely that prerequisite that members of East Coast Rhythm & Blues  (ECRB) feel is one of the major reasons for their success. Because the group respects and admonishes the talent and work ethic each member contributes, ECRB is able to concentrate on it's music and to deliver an entertaining and enjoyable performance.


Whether playing for 10 or 10,000, East Coast Rhythm & Blues will make it their main goal to see you go home satisfied...this highly motivated team has all the talent and experience you will ever need to get your guests (and even you) out of their seats and onto the dance floor! 

For head-turning music, come hear David Barnes (bass), Robert Earl Dilday (drums), Terry Eason (lead guitarist), Ken Hardee (keyboards/vocals), Al Hines (sax), Kim Jones (lead vocals/trombone), Rex Jones (lead vocals), Jan Raines (lead vocals/trumpet) & Drew Walton (trumpet/vocals) ... you'll be glad you did!

We hope you will search our site and enjoy what you see!  Feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions or booking information.  We look forward to partying with you soon!
