Ekoostik Hookah

Since 1991, the celebratory jam sounds of Columbus, OH's Ekoostik Hookah has made them one of the finest Midwestern bands to emerge from the neo-hippie scene of the 1990s. Starting off performing at local open mic nights, frontman/keyboardist Dave Katz, guitarist Steve Sweney, bassist Cliff Starbuck, and guitarist/vocalist John Mullins decided that a career in music would be financially trying yet enriching because they had a special passion for it all. The group was instantly noticed at a local party, later gaining studio time to record their debut, Under Full Sail, in 1991. In 1993, drummer Eric Lanese joined the group, percussionist John Polansky joined in 1995, and singer/songwriter Ed McGee completed the Ekoostik Hookah lineup the next year.

Throughout the '90s, Ekoostik Hookah trudged throughout the U.S., playing to countless shows while molding their grassroots/jazz/blues organic sounds. A second album, which was titled Dubbabuddah (1994), focused more on the band's lengthy jams and sonic grooves, yet the 1996 release of the band's live album Ekoostik Hookah was more of an accurate depiction of their relentless rock & roll impeccability, the growl of performing in front of an audience, and the power they had as a live band. It's their laid-back nature, the mellow atmospheric body encased in each song, that makes Ekoostik Hookah as desirable as they already are. Studio efforts are obviously a different set for the group, but it's the down-home good time that cuts the hook every time. A third LP, Where the Fields Grow Green, was issued in 1998 and another live double disc, Sharp in the Flats, followed a year later. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

My mother kim hunter has been listening to hookah since before I was born c: I have fallen in love with them and I go to a lot of their shows and festivals ! AMAZING if you go to one of their shows you will get your face melted! Hands down one of the best bands ever. I love them . The members are good hearted and very thankful and loving. Can wait to see them again !
How does one go about adding content to pandora? The huge volume of live shows that are out there would really add to the variety of Hookah on this channel
'94 Dugout Days....thes e boys continue to evolve ✌

Rvan I spent many of Wednesdays down at the South berg. I hit my head every time down there but wouldn't trade it for the world.

Early '90's I spent many Wednesday nights at the 'Berg! Love this band!
Been a faithful follower since 1997!!! Hooooooooooo o o o K a a a a a a a a a a s a a H ! !

sweney is beast.
Interesting how opinions can vary, even among fans who dig the same band.

I have to disagree w/shawn.odne a l . I thought the period Ed and Johnny were in the band was their heyday. Cliff was kind of the heart of the band. I sure miss his vibe.

I don't think the current lineup gelled well until 2012. They're getting better together . . . but it's still not the same.

Even so, they're still one of the best bands out there. Dave and Steve are the s**t!
Love u guys!! Keep it going!!
Proud to be Ohio Grown

Love this band, never have I seen a band so fan friendly. I was a BIG Ed Mcgee fan and was disappointed when he and John left but I went to the fall hookahville in 2012 and was pleasantly surprised with the new lineup. They were tight and rocked the ranch. HOOOOOOOKAH!
FINALLY got around to seeing them last weekend at the Miami Valley Music Festival in Troy. What have I been missing all these years?? What an amazing performance!
How about some Drunken Sunday ? ? ?
f**k yeahhhhh hooooooooook k k k k k k k k k k k a a a a a a a a a a a h h h h h h h h cant wait to jam at nlqp
huge fan since early 90's. dont know how many shows ive seen. use to see them at star light lounge in middletown oh. a little hole in the wall. the 90's hookah was great times.
I miss my boys... Wish I could get out to see them more often
1991..1992.. . used to catch these guys in the dank, dark perfection that was the Southberg... Hookah all night w/ 75cent natties to boot! Loved those summer nights.
shawn.odneal
Watched these guys for the first time summer '94 at Hookaville!! ! ! Songbird Ampitheatre, KY.. Biggest bonfire ever, ballons, fungus, drunkin raffle, I was hooked forever.. Used to play Easy Street Cafe in BG, Ohio. We bounced around the room all night, thought the floor was going to collapse. lol. Lost Interest during the dreaded Ed years, but was happy to see Mullins get cleaned up and back in the band. Caught a show a few months back and they tore it up! Good times!

HOOOOOOKKAAH H H H H H . . . . . . . c a n t wait for yonder mtn..to throwdown
Lookin' forward to spring Hookahville!
Though I am not impreesed by Pandora's recognition of this band, I am grateful for the intention. Ekoostik Hookah speaks to my soul. I have been a fan ever since my 1st Hookahville the fall of 96'. I was a young man thrust into the world and found my family of like minded individuals who loved and cherished each moment we spent together. The music spoke to us as we staked our place in the world. I will FOREVER be grateful!!
if nayone has hookah music please submit it, under full sail provide such a small picture of ekoostik hookah!!!! most things are hard to find do to royalty disputes. if u got it please share
peace
the current bio limits the band soo much....... john and ed were rarley ever on stage together; they alternated lead singer/ rythum gituar duites over the years ending w/ ED mcghee leaving to purse his own project one under. flowing Mcgees departure, jhon mulins resumed front man duties only to depart six months later.withou t a 2nd singer, the group fragmented with one of its core members, bassist cliff starbuck left for california. the current
are you a driller or a drill bit, either case we will break on through!!!
i havent miss one spring or fall in 11 years .
Hookah is a good time whenever they come around! they have been in the soundtrack of my life for a real long time. Wonder whats to come in the future for the boys.

Hookah was just here in Ashevegas,N. C . last week and they ROCKED. I love these guys. Hookahville is the best of the homegrown festivals out there. If you get a chance go see these guys no matter how far away from Ohio you are,it is well worth the trip. Long Live the Possumheads

Hookah are a great bunch of guys and have a killer sound. We just played a show with them this January and it was an amazing night of incredible music.

These guys are still touring and John Mullins rejoined the band last year after about 10 years away. If you get the chance get to Columbus Ohio for either Labor day or Memorial day to experience Hookah Ville. There live shows and the great kids that come to see them have made me a Hoookah fan for life! Check out the Red and Blue albums they are classic hookah with Mullins some of there best stuff if you can find it.
