About
Whatever the occasion, Eric will infuse his music into your event to ensure a memorable atmosphere. With close to 400 songs, Eric's song variety can adapt to most any mood or steer it in different directions. His song selection is as diverse as Florida's population. Eric is an acoustic singer and guitarist/ song writer whose main focus is to provide energetic live music while maintaining creative flexibility to suit any situation whether private part, wedding, restaurant, cafe, corporate party, or festivals. He also performs German songs. If you are searching for a memorable, fun, and family-friendly acoustic experience in the Tampa Bay area, you have found it!! Eric can also be accompanied by his wife who is a classically trained flute player. Ask for a sample of your favorite song to be uploaded.

I offer two main configurations adaptable to what you are looking for:

1. Solo performance - I play guitar and sing songs arranged for a one person performance.

2. Guitar/ singer Duo - I can bring along other talented musicians, most of whom, can provide improvisational guitar sounds, lead, rhythm and vocal support. Sometimes we will switch "duties" and take turns being creative and feed off of crowd stimuli. Fun, hard work, and some spontaneity (musically!! :-)).

3. I can also invite a third musician who can play the cajun beatbox for rhythm.


Recent testimony:

"Thank you Eric Tompkins for making our wedding day special. You are a true gentleman. Thank you for learning our song Simplicity by Rend Collective. It truly was beautiful. If your looking for a musician with a heart, who has a beautiful soul to match his music, contact Eric Tompkins. You won't be disappointed! Thank you Eric."

This is an exciting opportunity for me to "delve further into" the live music scene mostly as a solo musician. If you are from the local Tampa area, you may have seen me play at Love's Artifacts every Monday evening where I host open mic night. May may have also seen me play before at Sakana Sushi, BarFly, Cork N' Olive, Ozona Pig, Everything Dolce, Capitol Beer House, various Festivals or other venues around the Tampa area. I also played gigs while stationed in Germany when I was in the Air Force. Currently, I play every Saturday at the FLorida Winery in John's Pass. If you are a restaurant and are possibly interested in booking me, I will offer one hour of free music if you are local to see if my music is something that would suit your atmosphere.

Basically, I perform as a solo guitarist/ singer in a variety of settings or capacities. Whether it's a maxed out beach bar patio, restaurant, wedding, private or corporate party, coffee shop or lounge, I love to perform and can adjust my playing/ volume to suit whatever situation. I like to be creative in my interpretation of songs yet maintain the recognizable elements of them.


I consider myself to be a stripped down guitarist - that means, apart from my amplified acoustic guitar and vocal mic, I use no effects other than those that come pre-loaded on the equipment I use; I use a Soloamp by Fishman (220 Watts) which is enough for restaurant and beach settings. I sometimes will use a little reverb or chorus depending on the song. My goal is to preserve the natural sound as much as possible.

My song variety is rather eclectic and it grows virtually daily and with each musical influence I encounter whether it be someone in the audience with a suggestion, a song I hear on the radio, or at the store, or I hear on Youtube. My selection ranges from the Beatles, Ray Lamontagne, Coldplay, Peter Frampton, John Mayer, etc. I love acoustic songs which add to the experience of a beach lounging kind of day.

If there are certain songs you wish to request as part of my performance that are currently not on my set list, I can try to learn them with advance notice and incorporate them into the performance!!

Thank you for checking out my profile and I hope to be a part of your next celebration, may it be a birthday party, corporate event, or public venue.

Thank you,
Eric

Eric was fantastic! His calm demeanor, complete flexibility, and outstanding talent was a blessing to the wedding. He has an unbelievable array of songs that he performs, and he was more than happy to do special requests as well.
