Eric Haines is a classic one man band, with a bass drum on his back, a banjo over his shoulder, and plenty of bells and whistles everywhere else!
Kids and adults have the opportunity to play along on maracas, spoons and a special washboard equipped with a cowbell. The song list is a mixture of original tunes and parodies that Haines has composed himself for this instrument, and hits of the 1920’s and before.
The style is reminiscent of Dixieland Jazz.
Eric plays what can best be described as a traditional one man band rig, which most people associate with the Dick Van Dyke character Bert, in the movie Mary Poppins.
