Mike Surratt and the Eclectic Coalition Band.

The name says it all.

The average music lover doesn't listen to only one music genre/style. Why should a band only play one type of music? ECB can not answer that question. ECB wants you to enjoy a wide spectrum of fun dance music for your next function. This band can take you on a journey to the grand ballrooms that had the music of Glenn Miller, the sock-hops that rocked around the clock, through a doorway into the 60's and 70's, and finally ending up on a sunset beach listening to summertime boardwalk sounds or tropical Caribbean rhythms.

Plus, ECB is now creating its own music to add to the mix.


ECB's basic format is a trio of  professional musicians consisting of:

Mike Surratt (on Keyboards/Vocals)

Phil Gardner (Guitar/Trumpet/Vocals), Joe Stec (Drums)

and/or Alan Jones (Saxophones/Clarinet)
