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, ZZ Ward, Bonnie Raitt, Kelly Clarkson and
Adele to Gavin Degraw, Marvin Gaye, Meghan Trainor, Train, The Beatles and back to
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, cooke harvey and dan sarkissian.
come out and experience the essentials for
yourself! it's all you need!
Join us for our annual Christmas Party at the HillTop on December 19th!
Our last show of the year, last show until spring while we redesign our
repertoire, and a reunion with original Essentials guitarist Tony
Recommend a place for us to play
near you! If you have a private party or event, let the Essentials
make it a memorable, fun time!

Cooke Harvey bass, vocals
