Eric DeLand

It wasn’t until high school that Eric first took a serious interest in music. Quickly learning a variety of woodwind and percussion instruments he finally settled into the bass guitar. Relying heavily upon his music theory classes and sight reading, Eric then ventured into musical theatre, play many hit musical shows throughout San Diego winning an Aubrey Award for Best Sound for his work on Jesus Christ Superstar. Since then, Eric has played in many local bands such as Area 52, The Burning Sage Band, Thin Will, and The Cory Wilkins Band. The past few years has found Eric beginning to broaden his horizons, branching out into recording engineering. Now he’s enjoying the challenge of prog rock of the 70’s and 80’s that he grew up listening to playing with Arena Rock.
