Poor Man’s Whiskey Multi-Instrumentalist to Depart
Eli Jebidiah has long contributed guitar, banjo, mandolin, theremin and vocals to the Bay Area’s Poor Man’s Whiskey. The group has just announced, however, that his final performance with the band will be on Sunday, August 7 at the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in
San Francisco. Jebidiah will then concentrate his efforts on his new group, Huckle. He has released the following statement to his supporters:
Dear Friends and Fans of Poor Man’s Whiskey,
I am writing to let you know of my decision to leave Poor Man’s Whiskey to focus full time on my solo band, Huckle. I would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful I am to the Whiskey community for all the fun, love, and support you have extended to me over the last 8 years. PMW has been a wonderful experience, and I know that much of that is indebted to you. I will miss seeing you all at shows, and being inspired by the energy and vibes you bring.
The decision to move on from PMW was a difficult choice. I love my band mates and experiencing music with them. That said, I am ready to change musical directions and follow my heart into my new band Huckle. I will be releasing my debut record this fall and touring soon after to support it. I am really excited to have the opportunity to commit myself fully to this new music. I hope you take a moment to check Huckle out. If you are interested in more info about my new trio, come visit me at my website. There you will find Huckle tour dates, music, videos, and the latest news. You can also follow what I will be up to on my Huckle Facebook page
Change is good… as George Harrison says, “All things must pass”. I wish my PMW brothers continued success in the years ahead, I know they have some great things planned for the future. In the meantime, I’m looking forward my to the next phase of my musical journey with Huckle. I hope to see you out there!
Poor Man’s Whiskey is expected to name a replacement in the near future.
