Leland Sklar and The Immediate Family Enter the Studio, Announce Tour Dates

The Immediate Family

The Immediate Family is a band made up of L.A.’s most sought after session players. The members have worked together in studios on numerous hit albums by artists like Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Warren Zevon and many, many more. Now they’re going back into the studio for themselves.

The group is comprised of three guitarist/vocalists – Danny Kortchmar, Waddy Wachtel, and Steve Postell – with the rhythm section of drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Leland Sklar. Their new album will be the followup to 2018’s Honey Don’t Leave L.A., which was released in Japan. Though details are still slim, a press release explains that it will feature new compositions by Kortchmar, Wachtel, and Postell.

In addition to their new project, Sklar and the gang will be performing live later this Fall. They’ll play the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in Brookville, New York on October 24th before taking up for a three-night residency at the Iridium in New York City from October 25th to the 27th. Next year they’ll be on the Rock Legends Cruise VIII from February 27th to March 2nd.

Check out the band playing “Werewolves of London,” which Wachtel co-wrote with Warren Zevon:
