A dream come true
When Eric was just 10 years old he used to dream of becoming a professional musician, to make his own records and tour around the world. When he first started playing his saxophone in 5th grade he really had no idea what all that even meant. Well, after having performed in over 60 different countries, recording 14 solo CD's and playing on hundreds of other records, films, television shows and commercial jingles, Eric has definitely exceeded those musical goals he set for himself way back then. He went on to play in New Orleans with trumpeter Al Hirt, before being asked by Chick Corea to join the Elektric Band. With the Elektric Band, he went on to record 6 albums, win 2 Grammys, and travel all over the globe. Something he still does today with his own band. In addition, Eric has also written 3 instructional books and videos.
