We are sad to lose our bass player, Ron Beckett, but he’s moving out of state. We are happy to meet the acquaintance of Mark Whittington who brings his fine bass skills to our band. Come on by and enjoy the great timeless songs we all know and love.

About Fields of Eden

Fields of Eden is an Acoustic Rock Band that plays the classic rock hits covering the last three decades. This fun loving group delivers timeless songs just the way you first heard them and cover artists like ELP, Todd Rundgren, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, Coldplay, The Verve Pipe, Fleetwood Mac, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles… a mixed bag of songs and something for everybody. Fields of Eden’s members are The Edenfields: Lead singer/guitarist, Kiki Wow, whose engaging vocals and rhythm guitar hit a delightful and familiar chord that has audiences tapping and singing along from the first song on. Drummer and mix engineer, Greg Edenfield, whose timing and drum chops puts the right rhythm and pocket to every song. Greg is really fun to watch on his plethora of drum kits he has collected and built. Ron Beckett has years of bass playing in many genres under his belt, including performing at Carnegie Hall. He also sings background vocals and besides being a recent transplant to Monterey, he is also a mummy archeologist and studied Bioanthropology. This work led him to becoming the co-host of ‘The Mummy Road Show’, a 40 episode, 3-year series on the National Geographic Channel. He is currently listed as an ‘Explorer’ for the National Geographic Society and has received many academic accolades. He also has been involved in many documentaries both domestic and abroad associated with his work on mummies. These presentations were seen on Discovery, TLC, PBS, History and The Travel Channel as well as the National Geographic Explorer series. Stewart Pilkenton is the newest member to the band playing lead guitar and background vocals. He came to a gig and asked to sit in and he`s been playing ever since.

About Mark Whittington

Mark Whittington has been "serving the song" for more than 40 years.

A dozen years ago, Mark followed a day job to the Neon Desert, where he managed coverage of the Las Vegas entertainment scene for the daily newspapers. He moonlighted as the bassist for the West Coast Travelers, playing everywhere from casino lounges to biker bars. Mark moved back to the Monterey Peninsula in June.
