Excellent is all I can say, the guitar will drive you crazy. (Tone Sommers) great artists, great sax & vocals, good writing skills every song is strong. The kind of tunes that just keep playing in your head till you hear it again. He only has two cd's out, this may be all we hear from him since he is up in his years. (Ronnie Cowlishaw Sr.)

Ealey began by singing and drumming in a series of bands, including Boogie Chillen (which he formed in the mid-1950s with guitarist U. P. Wilson), the Juke Jumpers, and the Five Careless Lovers. He developed a strong following in Fort Worth, which became his permanent home base.

Ealey was a huge draw in Europe, where his gigs would often turn into all-night jam sessions. In the late 1970s he began thinking of opening his own nightclub. He wanted to establish a place where local musicians could learn from one another and showcase their talent. Musicians began raising money to revive a popular nightspot on the corner of Horne and Wellesley, in the predominantly black Como neighborhood of Fort Worth.

It became the New Bluebird Nite Club, a school for some of the region's most famous musicians. Some of the up-and-comers included Jimmy and Stevie Ray Vaughan, T-Bone Burnett, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and ZZ Top. Ealey co-owned the club from 1977 to 1989. In addition to managing his club, Ealey drove a truck for Bruce Alford Lumber and Door Company.
