Introduction: Introducing the musical trio, The EggMen. This group, based in the Bootheel of Missouri, has gained popularity due to the unique sound resulting from the blended instrumental and vocal talents of three men; Dennis Gurley, Matt Adams, and Dale Friday. They describe themselves as "A group dedicated to melody and harmony." Listening to The EggMen, you will hear selected gems from the very best of 60's and 70's rock and pop music, as well as original music that feels and sounds like it is straight out of that great era of historical American music. Beatles, Byrds, Donovan, Turtles, Johnny Rivers, CCR, Dylan, Classics IV; and other great groups and artists' music can be enjoyed at an EggMen performance. Dennis Gurley has been a professional performing artist, with bands and as a solo performer, for over 40 years, has recorded 5 solo albums and two group albums, one with his group The Gurley Show and one with The EggMen. He plays multiple instruments and is a prolific songwriter. In The EggMen, his flawless acoustic rhythm guitar playing gives the group a smooth, pleasant, and easy listening sound. He has 25 years experience as a recording engineer in his own Alley Trax Recording Studio. As a lead and harmony singer, his voice is recognizable to hundreds of people all over the ArkMoTenn area, and he also plays a mean harmonica! Matt Adams is a brilliant musician, singer, and writer with over 30 years of performing and recording experience. His lead guitar playing gives The EggMen a way-above-average professional level of sound. He plays a custom built Tele, as well as an electric 12-string on the songs that need that "jingle-jangle" sound. He also plays a vintage reproduction Airline baritone guitar on some occasions. He teaches music at the University Of Tennessee at Martin, TN. Dale Friday, a performing and recording musician and singer for over 50 years, plays bass, and sings, in The EggMen. If you like the tone and creativity of Paul McCartney, you will like Dale's bass playing. He even plays an Epiphone Epi Viola bass, patterned after the famed Hoffner used by McCartny. He has owned and operated 2 recording studios, and has his third currently under construction in Blytheville, AR. The most often-heard statements heard by The EggMen are: "We LOVE your songlist!" This comes from 14 year-olds and 60+ year-olds. "You guy's harmonies are PERFECT!" The unexpected excellence of the 3-part close harmonies is very pleasing to everyone, and has become the hallmark of The EggMen sound. "You guys sound like a CD or a jukebox!" The EggMen take pride in working hard (practice every Thursday night) to get the arrangements just right, the vocals spot-on, and the overall mix perfect. Seeing the smiles on the faces of our listeners is why we play. Giving people a 2 or 3 hour escape into the wonderful world of great music is our passion.

We have followed The Eggmen for almost a decade and seek them out for entertainment, listening to them anytime we can at their local performances. The Eggmen band is a great, easy to listen to band that makes you want to sway and dance. They play music spanning the 60’s to 80’s from the Beatles to the Bee Gees throwing in a great mix of their own original mix of songs. We highly recommend them for any event whether it’s a small get-together, large venue entertainment, fundraiser or street party. They play music that all ages and interests can enjoy and many songs that we all know!

Everything was A+++. Not only are they professionals, their sound is awesome. We used them for a concert and I enjoyed them so much that my wife and I have traveled to two restaurants where they were providing the background music. Both the volume and mix was excellent!! I would recommend them for your next event.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Matt has a Bachelors degree in Music Performance. He teaches guitar at UT Martin.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    While I was in college studying music, a friend and I put together a band. After only being together two weeks the drummer entered us into a battle of the bands competition in Jackson, TN. The competition went on for about a month and a half, there were 70 bands competing and we ended up winning the competition. After all the publicity we started getting a lot of gigs in Jackson and Martin, so that’s how I got started playing clubs and fraternity parties.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    We’ve worked at restaurants, nursing homes, private house parties, political fund raisers, a policeman’s ball, opening of a city hall, Bbq festival, pool parties, rotary club luncheon. Funerals, wedding party.
