The Huckleberrys
"I'm Your Huckleberry"
How do you get a name for a band of musicians and friends? Do you sit up late at night, or does it come in a flash of white light... like The Huckleberrys. One of our favorite songs that we have been playing is Larry's song "Elderberry Wine". So as the need arose to have a name on this thing - The huckleberry fit the elderberry! But, it really was the movie "Tombstone" that did it... Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday knows exactly what we mean - his best performance ever !

Larry Barkemeyer, the lead singer and songwriter is the inspiration and musical souce-code of the Huckleberry Band. With old friends Jeff Boyle (bass), Tom Ellis (drums) and Colleen Ellis (vocals & guitar) the band was formed to play original & old time music in an acoustic format. Now that our old ears can't take those loud amps anymore, it was time to go a bit softer - not slow down mind you, just softer. Love that mountain music! 

 Larry and Jeff grew up in & around Cottage Grove, Oregon.. the home of the Huckleberrys. In 2015 Nathan Smith from Eugene took over the bass playing for Jeff...   He played mandolin for The Huckleberrys before that...   Tom and Colleen have been in the area for 10 years - 'tho we have all been friends for much longer...
