EASE on Dead Covers Project 2022
EASE was featured on the Grateful Dead's website on February 5, 2022 as part of their yearly Dead Covers Project which highlights videos of artists covering Grateful Dead Songs. This year marked the third time that Dave and Steve were featured, but the first time that George, Steve, and Dave submitted a video as Ezra's Authentic Snake Elixir that was featured. This years theme was Europe 72. Click the picture below to watch EASE play Me and My Uncle.
SPECIAL GUEST MARK BERGFELT
Recently EASE has had to play a few shows without fiddler/mandolinist George Riley. While we definitely missed George, we were very happy to have Mark Bergfelt step in on the fiddle and mandolin, as well as some vocals, to contribute to some enjoyable evenings of music.
EASE undergoes a lineup change
George has decided to take a break after playing with us for nearly 7 years. After meeting George at an open stge over Christmas, 2015, George quickly became a part of the EASE family and a vital part of the band. Bringing with him country and swing influences, George's fiddle and mandolin playing helped round out the band and has been with us through a large part of our development. He appeared publicly with us over 200 times, starting with his first gig with us in July 31, 2016 at the Harmony Inn and continuing through until August 27 at Cousins, ending the show with a show piece of his, a cover of the Devil Makes Three's Do Wrong Right. We will miss George and wish him all the best. In the meantime, we will continue playing, sometimes as a duo, sometimes with a special guest or two, as we continue to make music into 2023

May 12,2018 EASE at Millvale Music Fest!!!!!
February 21, 2016 EASE is today's featured video on DEAD.NET
For the second year in a row, we are proud to have a video of ours selected as the Featured Video Of The Day on www.dead.net (the official site of the Grateful Dead) as part of their DeadCoversProject. This years video is of Me and My Uncle. It was taken before George and Henry (who has since left) joined the band, but remains a staple of our repertoire. Hopefully we will have more videos of the four of us to share shortly.
EASE played at the Millvale Music Festival on May 12. Though the torrential rains and lightening caused the stage at The Gardens Of Millvale to be shut down, the party moved into the adjoining greenhouse where EASE was joined by festival goers for an enjoyable, off the cuff set.
