Eric Haines One Man Band

Based in Everett WA



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.

The act pauses for interaction with the audience, and then continues as a roving act throughout the grounds. Book a one man band, and add a touch of whimsy to your roving entertainers!

“You da bomb” -Weird Al Yankovic

“Engaging, honest and heartfelt– you will love him.” -Louie Anderson

“Eric. well. I don't know what the hell he did. He joked, he sang, he jumped around, he molested random people in the audience. I was exhausted just watching him. But the audience thought he was hysterical - and that means he did his job, and exceptionally well, if the laughs were any indicator.” -Ken Pringle, chucklemonkey.com (Las Vegas Comedy Festival review)

"My act is how stand-ups describe their act when they're trying to be sarcastic." -Eric Haines

He will make your puny brains quiver like a bowl of congealed chicken fat.
