Son of multi platinum solo recording artist and Chicago's very own Ral Donner, who influenced such legends as John Lennon and Robert Plant, among countless others, Erik has played to thousands of people across the U.S., England, Italy, Spain, Norway, Denmark, and Guam . Erik is currently featuring his One Man Show, playing 300+ shows per year across the Midwest. His set reaches back to the birth of Rock and Roll, all the way to today's biggest artists. With a natural and uncanny ability to channel and emulate the vocal stylings of countless legends and an astounding vocal range from the deep, velvety tones of Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Sinatra, to the British Invasion stylings of Lennon and McCartney, through to the high register Hair Bands of the 80's and 90's, all the way to today's stars like Ed Sheeran, there is almost no song Erik can't deliver with great passion and authenticity. Playing professionally since 2000, he has toured the globe playing drums with Chicago Power Pop legends Enuff Z'Nuff and from 2007-2014, fronted his own Chicago based cover band Trash Martini as their lead singer/guitarist/drummer. In the spring of 2014, Erik rejoined Enuff Z'Nuff as their full time drummer and toured the world once again with them before stepping out of the band to focus on his solo show and more exciting local opportunities. Aside from his One Man Band show, you can also find Erik hosting an Open Mic / Live Band Karaoke Night around Chicagoland during the week. In 2017, Erik had a 6 month run, booked as the One Man Rock Band, at the famous Rockit Bar & Grill in downtown Chicago. Now, you can regularly find him at places like Adobe Gilas in Rosemont, Avanzare Restaurant in Lombard, Gabutto Burger in Elgin, Cucina Casale in Itasca, as well as Four Winds Casinos in New Buffalo, MI and South Bend, IN. Having played an incredible 1,500+ shows in the past 5 years and his One Man Show ever evolving, Erik sees no signs of slowing down in the years to come. Erik's undying passion and love for the music he performs each and every night is evident in every note he sings; leaving audiences completely satisfied but always wanted more.
