Eddie Baytos is a versatile dancer and musician who has worked with a varied and impressive roster of performers, most recently performing on Annie Lennox's new CD with Producer, Glen Ballard.
Because of his unique choreographic abilities in teaching non-musicians to mimic the energy and movements of veteran players, Eddie has carved out a niche for himself in a desperately needed field. Directors and audiences alike have marveled at the skillful way in which Eddie has taught actors inexperienced in the handling of instruments to portray artists convincingly.
A gifted musician able to play a wide range of instruments including washboard and accordion, Eddie has staged video performances and live tours for a variety of artists including the Eurythmics, ZZ Top, Uma Thurman, Jenna Elfman, Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, John Goodman, Maria Conchita Alonso, Annie Lennox, Weird Al Yankovic, and many others.
His commercial credits include staging and music in national spots for Volkswagen, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Coors, Budweiser, Chevy, Ford, and a number of industrials.
Eddie has also contributed to the scores for film features such as Runaway Jury, Thirteen, and Rugrats, as well as composing the score for an independent documentary on the history of “B” movies entitled Mau Mau Sex Sex.
In Eddie's long and storied musical career he has performed both live and in the recording studio with such artists as Jerry Lee Lewis, George Jones, Bruce Springsteen, Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos, John Fogerty, R.L. Burnside, Muddy Waters, Big Joe Turner, Percy Mayfield, Lee Dorsey, Johnny Adams, Ernie K-Doe, and Zig and Leo of The Meters. Eddie has even tap-danced on record with the famed Fayard Nicholas of the Nicholas Brothers.
