Founded in 2007 by drummer/songwriter Eric Stevens, Black Pearl is a spin-off of the Inland Empire's local classic rockers, "Daisycutter". Motivated to get out of the local scene and take things to the next level, Stevens created "Black Pearl" with the intent of presenting a true classic rock show with great tunes and a stimulating live performance. With long time friend and songwriter, Tom Morrison, Stevens and Morrison have combined to create some truly inspiring and original sounding music. The rhythms and melodies are inspired by the best, such as the Beatles, Rush, Pink Floyd, Genesis, and The Who.
The new line-up for 2018 includes Eric Stevens, Grammy winner Phil Naro, Adam Morse and Rick “The Ace” Ventura.
