We provide either solo guitar (with backing tracks), guitar/flute duo or quartet for weddings, receptions, private & corporate events, concerts & festivals with a repertoire ranging from classical to jazz, brazilian to nuevo flamenco, smooth jazz and new age.
We had a wonderful experience listening to Eric Roberts at a private event last night. He brought great professionalism, sensitivity and talent to us. He was very responsive and flexible in arranging the gig as well. I highly recommend him!
Response from MusicMagic Productions:
Thanks so much for your wonderful review and so glad you enjoyed my music. You were a pleasure to work with!
The music was great, and the setup took very little room. Highly reccommend!

ERIC ROBERTS is an accomplished guitarist and bassist as well as composer, and has been playing professionally since the age of 16. He holds a B.A. in Music from Ithaca College and a Master’s in Music from the University of Miami. He has enjoyed a successful career playing in Broadway shows, backing up name entertainers such as Chuck Berry, The Fifth Dimension, The Drifters, Bob Hope, Joan Rivers, Anthony Newley, Maureen McGovern, Chita Rivera, the Smothers Brothers, Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell, Danny Ganz, recording with the Orchestre Suisse Romande, performing solo guitar concerts, giving music workshops, and providing music for every type of occasion. His repertoire ranges from classical to jazz, brazilian to new age and nuevo flamenco. He works as a solo performer with tracks, as a guitar/flute duo and with a quartet. Eric's own original music encompasses a variety of musical influences from Paul Winter and David Darling to Ralph Towner, Eberhard Weber and Pat Metheny as well as the music of Brazil. His own unique sound comes from a melding of instruments -- from the classical guitar, acoustic bass and guitar synthesizer to the mandolin and the bandura (a Ukrainian instrument akin to the harp).
His debut CD, “IN A SILENT PLACE”, featuring world renowned cellist, David Darling, has been receiving accolades the world over, and most recently the track “Flowing” became a finalist in the “new age” category of the 2009 Independent Music Awards and the track “Cella’s Song”, written for his wife, won first prize in the “instrumental” category of the 2007 USA Songwriting Competition. His music can currently be heard on XM Radio as well as Comcast’s “Music Choice” channel on their “Soundscapes” program.
His new EP, “MY BRAZILIAN HEART”, features 6 of his smooth jazz and brazilian compositions and features a stellar lineup of musicians who have backed up many of the world’s biggest music acts.
