WHO IS THE ELI SEALS BAND?
Hometown: Thomas, Louisiana
"I've been singin' and playin' guitar for as long as I can remember. I guess my biggest musical influence ... after my momma and daddy ... I don't know, maybe it's Hank Williams. I just know that I strive to be a better songwriter and performer every day. But you have to love it. Bein' a full time musician can be a challange ... but ... what do they say? If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life."
Hometown: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
"People know me as 'WhatTheHell Breland' and I'm a musician. Always have been, always will be. I've been so blessed to have people in my life who understand that ... my wife, my family, friends, this band of brothers. I think music makes a difference in people's lives. It's why I play, it's why I teach. I don't know that I've saved any lives playing music ... but I can say that I've touched people's souls. I think that's just as important."
Hometown: Pearl, Mississippi
"I'm known as 'Da Bassman'. Doesn't take a genius to figure out why. I suppose I'm also known as the joker of the band and that's ok by me. We all need to have a little fun, don't we? I love playing music with Eli, we've been together for a long time now. If I wasn't doing this, I'd probably be a shoe salesman. Nah ... probably not ... this is really the only thing I've ever wanted to do."
Hometown: Carriere, Mississippi
"It feels great being back with the band. These guys are great musicians and they really bring out the best in me. I'm looking forward to what we've got going on now and what we've got comin' around the corner. The band's future is bright and I'm happy to be back in the mix.
