Musician

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.
