AWESOME!!!

I love that Phil Collins tune.

That was fun. Hey were you doing Mona Lisa at the beginning?

I agree with the idea of promoting the the stage show, especially with those superb testimonials.

Really nice - now I have to start using that beautiful white box BUT I now need an ES drum set.

What a great promo vid! Nice one mate.

You have wonderful stage presence.

I also don't know of many others who would be willing to cart around a full drum kit for ONE reveal... Should you ever tire of loading in a drum kit...
you could swap it out for a slide whistle, and change the song to 'Groove is in the heart'. Smile

Great job!

Eric -- I absolutely loved the use of music in an effect. Can I assume from the array of instruments on stage that this is plays a sizeable role your show? I've been thinking a lot lately about mixing music and mentalism, and I'm curious to see more of what you do with the combination... Any other videos out there?

Just to clarify, I don't cart around a kit to every gig Smile

As I've posted here before, I look for every opportunity to do something unique when conditions allow.
In this circumstance, I was booked to perform in a beautiful recording studio that is also a live music venue.
During a site visit, the studio manager asked if it would be okay to leave the Grand piano on stage for my show.
That triggered the idea....if a piano would be perceived as 'organic' in the venue, then why not a drum set?
So, I had a kit set-up for the gig (I played drums for a living for a while when I was much younger).

But the more important point that I always ask myself, is this (and it's a chapter in the book that I've been working on this year):
what can I bring from my own life experience, including seemingly unrelated skills, to make my show more entertaining and unique?

Cheers,

e

This is why I love Eric. Fantastic job, entertaining, poised, credible. And yes, I recognized the bit from the White Box manual. Excellent promo.

Best,

I have to say that I really am delighted for you, Eric. I came round to watch this again. You could not have possibly done a better job. Superb.

What was the process?

Great demo, Eric. I loved the way the drum reveal tied into the closing of the demo. Really classy stuff.

As a fellow drummer (OK ex drummer) I loved the final reveal.
But I loved the whole thing.
Just a great promo.
