Lonesome Eddie and the Saddle Sores is a music- and harmony-lovers country band based in Lafayette/Berkeley featuring Lonesome Eddie on pedal steel. The band members are a playful group of talented musicians and singers who light up the stage with a nice blend of slow and upbeat songs. The present Lonesome Eddie and the Saddle Sores country band was formed in 2013 by Lonesome Eddie and Austin Hurst when the rock & roll band that they had played in for 30+ years, Soft Touch, was ready for something new. The band includes a few other Soft Touch veterans and some new members. The band’s aim is to preserve the sound of classic country and country-rock styles, performing a mix of well-known country songs along with originals and tunes from other genres reinterpreted with a country flavor.
