The Leroy Ellington Blues Band, delivers hard driving, funky blues power, exploding with energy, entertainment and unbelievable musicianship!
Leroy has been performing in the Cincinnati area for nearly 30 years and his passion is singing and playing "THE BLUES", in his own unique style!
Leroy has surrounded himself with a ”powerhouse” of a band, including: Mark “The Hammer” Gray, on drums and Mike Grosser on Bass Guitar, holding down the foundation. While Pablo Benevides on Keyboards, and Sean Dawkins on Guitar are painting a beautiful blue, portrait of rhythm and grooves. William Brian Hogg, does all of his talking with his horn as he slays you with a flurry of soulful saxophone. Sonya Watkins and Karen Flowers, "The Soul Flower Singers" bring an ere of elegance and class to the performance, serving as both "eye candy" and "ear candy" to each performance… these girls are the "real deal!
In 2012 and again in 2013, The Leroy Ellington Blues Band placed 2nd in The Cincy Blues Challenge, sponsored by the Cincinnati Blues Society and in 2014 he placed 3rd in both The Cincinnati Blues Challenge as well as The Dayton Blues Challenge!
