Eddie Lee & Closing Time Schedule

Eddie Lee and Closing Time was formed by Front Man, Singer/Songwriter Eddie Lee upon his return from Nashville. The band released its first album self entitled “Eddie Lee & Closing Time” which included 11 of Eddie Lee’s self-penned songs. The CD found great reviews in Europe and received local radio support winning a new song competition against major label recording artists 5 weeks in a row. The band endured a rigorous schedule of shows and took over as the house band for 92.5 WBEE radio. Over the years Eddie Lee has had the pleasure of playing shows with the likes of Little Texas, Big House, Phil Vassar, Joe Nichols, Sammy Kershaw, Confederate Railroad, Joe Diffie, Aaron Tippin, Marty Stuart Jarrod Niemann & in 2017 Clint Black.

I’m having more fun playing live music with Eddie Lee & Closing Time than I have had in a long time! I love Eddie’s song writing, the new CD is Great, the guys are great performers and better friends!

Thad Maxwell

Steel Guitar
Thad has spent half his working life as a professional musician in Hollywood, CA. He played guitar, drums, bass, and pedal steel guitar on TV (over 40 appearances on the Tonight Show), recording, and touring with artists and bands such as: Swampwater (Linda Ronstadt), Tarantula, Arlo Guthrie, Mac Davis, Dolly Parton, Rick Nelson, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. He retired from 20 plus years of the music life and returned to upstate NY to teach third grade in Honeoye Falls for 21 years, and gradually returned to the music life and is playing with Eddie Lee and Closing Time. Yep, do the math and he’s a geezer, but still rockin’!
