About Eric

I have been around music since birth. My dad plays the bass guitar and would always have his band practice at our house. I would fall asleep to his band playing everything from Country to Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin. I picked up a pair of sticks at the age of 4 and never looked back. My earliest studying of drums could be considered sitting behind the drummers that would be at my house, and learning the mechanics of how a drum set worked. I also did play in school bands as early as the 5th grade all the way through college. I learned how to read music as well as learn to play in ensemble at an early age.

I joined the drumline starting in 7th Grade and was section leader in 8th grade. I did every type of band in high school: Marching, Concert and Jazz bands. I was Captain of my drumline for 2+ years as well. Aside from the school bands, I have been a gigging drummer since I was 15, playing a wide variety of genres from Pop Punk to Funk. I currently play in a couple bands which includes "Quick Stop", and a 90's/Classic Rock cover band. I also play in a Country band called "Big Bad Wolf". I have been fortunate enough to open for national acts such as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Eddie Money, and Clay Walker.

Please come by and see me so we can talk in store. I look forward to meeting you in person.
