Eric Wheeler

I am a Washington DC native who got involved with music at about nine years old. I started out playing classical music and discovered jazz in high school (Duke Ellington/arts). Since then I have been playing music for a living. Most people know me as a chill laid back person... I do not have too much to say. I let my music do the talking. I love performing jazz and various styles of music for respective audiences.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
