good friends, good tunes, and good musicians, mean good times!
we enjoy playing
material and making it our own! we believe that the essentials
will surprise you with our variety of music ranging from the 60's to the top 40
of today! even though it makes it extremely difficult to categorize a band
that goes from pink, red hot chili peppers, bonnie raitt, kelly clarkson and
adele to gavin degraw, marvin gaye, train, the beatles and back to gladys
knight, carrie underwood, and kings of leon! we love the diversity and
being able to keep a crowd of multiple generations dancing and having a great
three and four part harmonies and a heart pumping rhythm section, the essentials
are: dorothy & roger hoilman, tony kukulich, dustin samples and dan sarkissian.
come out and experience the essentials for
yourself! it's all you need!
It's been a long winter and a long time since we've played any public
venues. Now that spring has sprung, it would be great to see
everyone at one of our upcoming gigs. We will play for the
University of Delaware's AG Day, the opening night of the St Helena's
Carnival in Wilmington, and also kick off the Summer Concert Series at
Paradocx Vineyards over Memorial Day! We're still doing private
parties and events, but hope to catch you at at local event soon!
