The Eli Cook Band

The Eli Cook Band will put aside the traditional blues and pick up the psychedelic rock for a Hendrix tribute show at the Barboursville Community Theater as a benefit for the Four-County Players Theater.

It's an intimidating mission, to be sure, but one that Cook has been working up to for years. He covered "Castles Made Of Sand" on his fiery electric album, "Electric Holy Fire Water," and he says Jimi's ghost sometimes visits him during the wee hours of the morning

"I've had dreams where he shows me how to play his songs," says Cook, "I never actually remember what he showed me, but maybe some of it gets back in sub-consciously when we're working up arrangements."
