This trio of videos gives you a taste of what I’m all about.  The first is a highlight reel of the Eric Patterson Band from one of my recent shows in Seattle.  Next up is a video of my amazing Downey High School student group preforming “Lingus” by Snarky Puppy back in 2016.  Finally you can see how I paid the rent for many years.  I figure I have played about 500 hundred wedding at this point, most with the incomparable West Coast Music.
