While Ed is excited about supporting his new acoustic blues CD “Eatin’ Time, The Ed Vadas Blues Quartet, a four person version of The Fabulous Heavyweights Blues Band has supported him for many years. First formed in late 1981, they have, throughout the years, performed over 4000 gigs, while travelling over 800,000 road miles playing great blues and roots music in a contemporary and unique way. . Throughout time, many a player has come and gone. Some forgetable, some regretable, most unforgetable for both good and bad reasons. The band recorded five albums.. with a sixth about ready for release. They opened for about everyone at one time or another. Co-billed with B.B. King. Served as band for Otis Rush, Pinetop Perkins, and Bo Diddley. Performed as a mainstage act at many local and national blues festivals including Fort Lauderdale, Berks County Jazz and Blues, and the reverred King Biscuit Festival in Helena, Arkansas. Extensive touring for the band has ceased, but they do make random ventures for a quality gig or festival and Ed is always ready for a road trip. At 66 years, Ed still feels the best music is still to come!.
