EHS is unlike there other two projects it's pure country rock. Joining Matt on Vocal, Steve on Bass there is also a Jordon the Fiddler, Danny on the Pedal Steel Guitar and Brian Ferguson on Drums. There 27 song set list keeps you wondering if it's an EHS original or a classic cover. The show at the Redwood was well received with couples dancing and singing along with the EHS.  Check them out at or
