Son of multi platinum recording artist, Ral Donner, who influenced such legends as John Lennon and Robert Plant, among countless others, Erik has played to thousands of people across the U.S., England, Italy, Spain, Norway and Denmark. Playing professionally since 2000, he has toured the globe playing drums with Chicago Power Pop legends Enuff Z'nuff and from 2007-2014, fronted his own Chicago based cover band Trash Martini, as their lead singer/guitarist/drummer. In the spring of 2014, Erik rejoined Enuff Z'nuff as their full time drummer and is set to once again tour the world with them. You can also find Erik hosting an Open Mic / Live Karaoke Night around Chicagoland during the week. Having played a remarkable 206 shows in 2013 and an astounding 258 in 2014, Erik sees no signs of slowing down in 2015.
