creation of a sound unlike any other today. With Aaron's soulful nuances, Matt's high flying guitar work and Adam's solid and creative drumming, BES is a very impressive musical entity. Their sound is a blend of musical colors ranging from soul, funk, rock, blues and jazz. Along with writing both simple and intricate compositions, the band blends beautiful harmonies that any music lover would appreciate. Each song converges on the listener with the warmth and acceptance that harmonic enthusiasts spend lifetimes seeking out. Adventurous, temperate, intimate and dependable, Black-Eyed Susan continues to suprise
and delight even the most veteran devotee. Recently, the band has become a trio which has challenged them and forced them to mature to an even greater level of intensity and feeling. BES has always shared a strong sense of community, friendship, and a warm family vibe amongst its three members as well as its fans. The band prides itself onstage to create a live performance that will touch and tingle the soul of anybody who listens."
