About The Band

Eric Von hails from the charming coastal enclave of Cortez, situated along the Gulf Coast in southwest Florida. One of three brothers, with an older sibling and a twin, his upbringing was steeped in the saltwater culture of his seaside community. From a young age, the allure of the ocean captivated him, sparking passions for surfing, fishing, and diving, but it was music that truly became his calling. Infusing his country melodies with an island vibe, he began writing his own music and lyrics. At just twelve, he picked up a guitar, and by fourteen, he was already gracing stages with his soulful tunes. Sharing the limelight with country luminaries like Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, and Jake Owen, among others, has been a highlight of his musical journey. His accolades include clinching the Colgate Country Showdown titles for both Central Florida and the entire state in 2007. The following year, he earned the prestigious honor of being named Kenny Chesney’s “Next Big Star” for the Tampa area, seizing the stage before a crowd of 13,000 at the Ford Amphitheater. As a Nashville Recording Artist, his track “I Can’t Help But Smile” soared to number 64 on the Nashville Music Row Breakout Charts. In 2015, upon returning from Nashville, he founded The Eric Von Band, delivering a dynamic Florida country rock experience that’s as electrifying as it is unforgettable. From the tranquil shores of Cortez to the bright lights of Nashville and beyond, Eric’s musical journey continues to evolve, fueled by a passion for storytelling and a love for the stage.
