From 1991-2022, Michael Clem has been playing bass, singing and writing songs for the national touring act he co-founded, Eddie from Ohio. Over that time, EFO amassed a sizeable grassroots following, released nine CDs (all independently) & collected numerous Washington Area Music Association Awards. In the past decade, with the band slowing down, Clem relocated from Northern Virginia to Charlottesville, VA where he’s established quite a foothold in its vibrant musical scene, from session work to solo and ensemble gigs in the Central VA circuit.
Joining Clem will be his reliable Cville trio CLEIDSNER, featuring Rusty Speidel on guitar, vocals, Paul Rosner on drums & moi on bass and vocals. Joining the trio will be Washington DC area guitar legend and former Nighthawk, Paul Bell – hence, the name CLEIDSNER BELL.
The good folks at Jammin Java (like family to Clem) have continually saved his birthday weekend in early January for such an experience. Come join this fine annual event.
