Son of multi platinum 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 and Denmark. 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 opportunites. Aside from his One Man Band show, you can also find Erik hosting an Open Mic / Live Karaoke Night around Chicagoland during the week. Erik has also been booked as the One Man Rock Band at the famous Rockit Bar & Grill in dowtown Chicago every Friday night beginning in 2017. Having played an astounding 750+ in the past 3 years, Erik sees no signs of slowing down in 2017.


With years of experience under his belt, you won't find a more qualified, dignified or electrified person to entertain at your corporate event, bar, casino, wedding or private party!
