(VIDEO) Kingston-based band Peter Eldridge & Friends rocks out to James Taylor’s classics

Pete EldridgeFIRST PARISH- Kingstonian Peter Eldridge, the lead singer of Peter Eldridge & Friends, said he grew up listening to bands like The Rolling Stones, Bad Company and Led Zeppelin. “Basically all those long-haired boy bands,” Eldridge jokingly told concert-goers last week.

Eldridge said he didn’t listen to his first James Taylor album until 1983.

“Well I listened to that thing over and over. I was just totally hooked on his musical style,” Eldridge said. “I just had to learn how to play his stuff.”

Boy did he.

Eldridge rocked First Parish Kingston for the better part of 90 minutes last Friday with a sound as crisp as autumn air. Unsurprisingly, Eldridge and his bandmates walked off the stage to a standing ovation last week.

What was surprising? Eldridge played two encores.

Friday’s concert, a fundraiser for First Parish, sold well over 100 tickets at $15 a pop.

Eldridge was accompanied with female-vocalist Kate Sullivan, mandolin-player Steve Folino and bassist Ron Cummings. Tom Augello played the saxophone and chipped in with vocals.

KingstonJournal.com was in attendance at the Peter Eldridge & Friends concert last weekend and obtained permission to film. The Journal presents Peter Eldridge & Friends cover of James Taylor’s “Lo and Behold,” a track released with the album Sweet Baby James in February 1970.
