The Ellerbe Creek Band

60's / 70's / 80's
In 2009, 5 childhood friends from Durham got together to reconnect and have a little fun playing the classic songs and singing the sweet harmonies that they grew up loving.  What started out as just a once a week hobby quickly turned into a desire to go out and share these great classics with the rest of the Triangle.  A few years and several shows later, we are still putting smiles on faces playing all the great tunes from days gone by.  If you grew up in the 60's, 70's, or 80's, you will love taking a trip down memory lane with The Ellerbe Creek Band.
