Logan playing at The Baked Potato

On the 15th October 2019, The Logan Sheppard Band, featuring Ellis Hall played at The Baked Potato in LA to a packed crowd. Logan is an up and coming drummer, percussionist, and producer who has been playing drums since the age of six, and performing professionally since the age of twelve.

He recently played at the Crossroad Guitar Festival 2019, which is where he heard about the Turn Up For Recovery movement. He was inspired by hearing Melia Clapton speak about the movement and reached out, offering to do whatever he could to support it. In doing so, he became the first person to put on a gig for the movement.

The show had an amazing line up, including the “Ambassador of Soul” Ellis Hall (Tower of Power) on vocals and keys, Benjamin Shepherd (Peter Erskine, Kendrick Lamar) on bass, Rico Belled (The Rippingtons, Dave Weckl) on keys, Marco Soronio on guitar and Elisha Soronio on vocals!

The event raised over $500 for Turn Up For Recovery, with all the profits from ticket sales going towards funding recovery for struggling addicts and alcoholics.

A massive thank you to Logan and his team from everyone at Turn Up For Recovery!
