The Hit Men
"Classic Rock's Legendary Side Men" The brand new one-hour special that THE HIT MEN - Classic Rock’s unique supergroup of legendary side men - have produced for WSFU PBS in Tallahassee, FL. This dynamic “rockumentary-style” film features concert footage from a sold out March 2020 performance at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers, FL interspersed with interviews with the five members (who were recipients of the first-ever Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum™ Road Warrior Award). The prestigious Hall of Fame Award was given to them to honor “their years of dedication to the music, and the countless miles that they have traveled in delivering so many hits throughout the world.”
THE HIT MEN recorded and/or performed with the artists whose hits they play in their spectacular multi-media show – some of the biggest names in rock history including Foreigner, Journey, Toto, The Who, The Rascals, 3 Dog Night, Frankie Valli and more. Not only do THE HIT MEN play the hits they helped rocket to the top of the Billboard charts, they also share fascinating backstage stories about their days on the road (and in recording studios) with rock royalty.

EThree with host Bob Zucker this week featuring Eric Ramsey - Fingerpicking, Bluesy Singer/Songwriter With soaring vocals and organic arrangements, Eric writes from experience about the human condition - at times sensitive, at times humorous, always thought-provoking. His arrangements and delivery encompass a spectrum of styles from delicate ﬁngerpicking to raucous, bluesy bottleneck slide. Among other things, Eric Ramsey is two time champion of the Phoenix Blues Society's Blues Showdown. He has been a semi-ﬁnalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN and a Finalist in the Telluride Blues Challenge. He’s a past winner of the Stefan George Memorial Songwriting Competition, has been tapped for the prestigious Songwriter's Showcase produced by Tempe Center for the Arts, ﬁlmed for PBS distribution, and has been a featured performer multiple years running at the Dripping Springs (TX) Songwriters Festival. Eric's live performances are captivating, entertaining and accessible, and he's a favorite on the Blues and Folk Festival circuits not only for his dynamic performances but for his workshops on slide guitar techniques and tricks.
