Bio

The Band

Riders On The Storm have performed over a thousand concerts, in dozens of countries, to countless numbers of The Doors' Fans World Wide! From the eerie organ tones to the primal jazz drumming to the powerful, other-worldly guitar, the music is brought to life. The "Brass and Leather" voice of Jim Morrison is alive and well. On stage, Riders On The Storm create a séance-like mood. A mood of resurrection, of eroticism, obsession, ritual, horror and of Celebration! The show is true theater and larger than life. It is an experience that must be seen to be believed and felt.

Eamon Cronin

Lead Vocals

Eamon IS Jim Morrison incarnate on stage in every way! 
"Black dressed in leather". 
He has mastered the  gestures,mannerisms and unpredictable stage antics! 
 His performance is backed by his remarkable ability to transmit the voice of Jim Morrison with accuracy that is unearthly, eerie and must be experienced live to believe. From the electrifying hits to soft crooning ballads to shrill otherworldly screams and howls of the Rock and Roll anthems of The Doors, the brass and leather voice of Jim Morrison is alive and well! EAMON WAS ARRESTED LIVE ON STAGE IN NEW HAVEN CONNECTICUT! (See it in the intro of the promo video.)

Ryan Daily

Organ, Piano Bass, Backing Vocals

Ryan has been the keyboardist for Robby Krieger of The Doors! 

Ryan also played with Doors guitarist Robby Krieger in Paris, France on Jim Morrison's 50th Birthday in 1993! He was hand picked by the Man himself to fill the keyboard duties on recent dates. Ryan is the spitfire of the band! He has mastered Ray Manzarek's unique organ and left-hand bass technique.  He plays authentic 60's keyboards like The Doors used including the Vox Continental organ, Gibson G101  organ, and Rhodes Piano Bass.  He is a dead ringer for Ray with his rimless half octagon glasses and vintage suits.

Todd Alan McKeague

Drums, Percussion

Todd joined the band in 1998 after an extensive array of prison stints in Dade County hard labor camps. On "The back beat narrow and hard to master", he is a pivotal member of the group who delivers intensity, dynamics and musicianship to every show. He brings passion to John Densmore's "Tribal Jazz" drumming. 

Todd is a multi instrumentalist, a family man, but is mostly known for being one of the most easy going, laid back, carefree professionals in the business.
