Band/Performer Name:  Poorhouse Millionaires Featuring Eli Lester
Description:  Poorhouse Millionaires are a Roots and Blues band from Modesto CA. We have been playing together for a little over 2 years. Big Earl Matthews is best know as the front man of Big Earl and the Cryin' Shame, where he has been belting out the Blues for the past 12 years. Eli Lester is our lead guitar player and is also a member of BEatCS. Nathan Ignacio plays guitar and harmonica. We won a MAMA award in 2012 for best blues and jazz. We have released one cd of original music called Prevention Intervention and we had our song Sunday Afternoon featured on another cd called My Friends and I. Our current plans involve recording another cd latter this year and touring nationally starting in April.
City:  Modesto

bluescomdo I've been following Big Earl for a few years. He is a true student of the blues and would be a great opening for BB. I haven't seen him with this group but they sound good. Hope they win this honnor.

agoreff They are tight, soulful, and versatile with plenty of heart! You either close your eyes and let the music turn you into a foot stomping bobble head or get up and dance. They are headed for the big stage, might as well give them that chance now at the Gallo.

goforgal I took Eli to his very first BB King Concert back when he was in high school. His dad came with. It was at the Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento and we had front row seats. It would be "poetic justice" for Eli and his band to get this gig! Vote for Poorhouse Millionaires!!
