ABOUT US: The E-Flat Porch Band is named for the porch in McKinney, Texas where the members first practiced - it resonates to the key of E-Flat. Duane Brown and Rudy Littrell form the core of the band, entertaining with their unique blend of acoustic “porch music,” including folk, blues, early country, jazz and original tunes. As “angst-free” acoustic musicians, they play serious music without taking themselves too seriously. In fact, they have recently discovered that they are adult prodigies.
Their “porch music” is played on acoustic instruments and pays homage to our varied Texas musical roots. It is influenced by Country Blues, Texas folk music, Jazz and swing standards, and Depression Era country songwriters. Guitar playing styles include finger picking and slide guitar. Other instruments include the acoustic bass, harmonica, cymbal, and a drum-like instrument of their own design made out of a wooden soda pop box. This is a small band with a big sound--up to eight instruments will be heard at one time, along with harmonizing vocals.
The band is on the Touring Artist Roster of the Texas Commission on the Arts, and they offer workshops and performances for a variety of age groups, including school and library performances. They have been playing together for over 15 years, and have three CDs, Porch Music, Pork Chop Night, and No Unauthorized Play.
Venues they have played include the Texas Metal Arts Festival (Gruene), Tucson (Arizona) Folk Festival, Denton (Texas) Blues Festival, Wildflower Festival (Richardson, Texas), the Texas Arts and Crafts Fair (Kerrville, Texas) the Texas Folklife Festival in San Antonio, the Heritage Festival at Six Flags in Arlington, Texas, Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse (Dallas), and Squatty Pines Storytelling Festival (Tyler).
