ERIC DEMMER "Hear What You Feel; Play What You Hear" So began the journey of a natural-born musician, playing anywhere at any time with anyone. He grew up steeped in the blues and rock and roll of the 70's and 80's. He absorbed the sounds of The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, B.B. King, and fellow Texan, Stevie Ray Vaughn. One night, ERIC was invited to perform onstage with the legendary Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. From that night forward, ERIC joined Gate's band and traveled all over the world for the next 12 years, until Gate's death in 2005. The journey with "Gate's" band led them to tour extensively as the opening act for Eric Clapton during his "From The Cradle" tour. ERIC has performed with many well-known and respected musicians: Carlos Santana, B.B. King, George Duke, Joe Sample, David Sanborn, Todd Rundgren, Shamika Copeland, Johnnie "Clyde" Copeland, Johnnie "Be Good" Johnson (pianist with Chuck Berry), Duke Robillard, Buddy Guy, Delbert McClinton, The Allman Brothers, Dr. John, Kim Wilson, and many others. ERIC describes his style of music as, "high energy, funky blues with a mix of jazz" and combines a variety of influences while reminding everyone that, "The real thing comes from the heart and soul".
