The best kept secret in music


"Buda Bar Goes Crazy for Marc Eric"

Moe's Buda Bar in Agora Hills, Ca had a surprise guest sit in with local rockers, "The LoveJoy's". Ventura County's own Marc Eric made a guest appearance and electrified the Buda Bar crowd with such crowd favirotes as "Hey Joe" and "Magic Carpet Ride". It was a great night with some great music, and fun had by all. - Ventura Music Review

"Marc Eric at the Ventura Theatre"

w/ Marc Eric

Marc Eric. The stage went dark, dim lights came up as an eriee sound filled the theatre, It was then over lapped with guitar fade-ins, reminiscent of Pink Floyd... Couldn't see who was playing, then Marc Eric came slowly strolling out... Very cool... As the intro climaxed, they suddenly broke into
their first number, a Zeppelinish tune with driving guitar... Very catchy song..
Marc's vocals had a unique character to them, which fit like a glove with the
sound. Then, with an arena-schooled pace, they went right into "Hey Joe"...
nice! This song is were Marc's guitar playing ability was brought forth. His style was very unique. He really made the song his own, tapping harmonics
in the melody in one part. Nice trick at the end which appeared to be some
kind of looping pedal that kept playing while he switched guitars. The next
song which was another original was unbelievable!.. it definitely capitvated
the crowd! I. The song after that was also very powerful and hit-song oriented...
I was told that it is the title track for Micheal Imperioli's new movie called "Stuey"
(not yet released). They ended with a instrumental hurricane! some very smokin
guitar playing! Near the end, the drummer thew Marc his Drum stick and he began
playing his guitar with it, tapping hammer-ons at the speed of light, then going into
a funky/rythmic pattern with the drummer.... never seen that before... The crowd loved
it! This band really put on a big-league show, and i look forward to seeing them again.

Savoy Brown came out and sounded great! but a bit less exciting in contrast, but hey,
they are a ledgendary band dating back to the sixties. Kim Simmons guitar playing ,
was great! more of the old school Claptonish sound. They played for about an hour,
then took a break for about 1/2 hour. Kim Simmons came back out, sitting
on a chair, playing some of his acoustic numbers, then was later re-joined by his
band mates. They put on a great show, playing through their large catalogue of
songs... It was a good evening.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Marc started playing guitar at age 11. After taking lessons from a local jazz/fusion guitarist, he would be forever in love with the guitar.

In 1997 Marc was discovered and worked with legendary singer "Graham Bonnet" (Rainbow, MSG) and can be heard on his 2001 All-Star album "The Day I Went Mad", Featuring: Slash (Guns n Roses), Bruce Kulick (Kiss), Tony Franklin (Jimi Page's "The Firm"), and more...

Now Going solo, and following in the path of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan as a Singer/Songwriter/Virtuoso Guitarist, he is well on his way to establishing himself as a worldclass recording artist/Performer, and is sure to rise up the ranks.

It wasn't long before Hollywood took notice of Marc's incredible talent. In the fall of 2003, Marc was approached by Hollywood Producer, Antony Vidmar, to provide all the original songs for Michael Imperioli's (Sopranos) new feature film "Highroller: The Life of Stu Unger", slated for release in 2004 by New Line Home Entertainment. Marc's song, "Fallin In" is the title track for the film, in addition to 4 other tracks used throughout the film to earn him opening and closing credits for all original music throughout the film. Marc's songs have been featured in other Film and television shows including: "Joan of Arcadia", and "Judging Amy", and he continues to be approached for a variety of new projects by both TV and major Hollywood Film studios.
