The Eric Anderson Band & Synergy Ad Specialties, Inc.
He loves “the synergistic energy” of playing for a crowd. This synergy fuels his passion, as demonstrated at the Chasco Fiesta last year, with each meticulous guitar stroke Eric Anderson masterfully played of the familiar riffs in Led Zeppelin’s, “Heartbreaker,” and other classic rock covers the audience craved.
Eric was a pre-teen when his mother showed him his first four chords on her Gretsch Jet Firebird electric guitar that he currently owns today. It was then that his passion ignited for the guitar, and his innate love for music was manifested.
Eric Anderson chose to pursue his place in music by the tender age of twelve. He took guitar lessons and he and some friends started their first band in junior high school. In high school, he continued to study music, but by this time, he was not only receiving instruction, he was passing it on through guitar lessons for others. However, the guitar was only one instrument of many, be it bass, keyboards, drums, whatever, Eric simply enjoys anything having to do with music!
He studied music in college. Following graduation, Eric successfully sought employment in the recording industry. His musical resume includes impressive work composing, recording, producing, and performing tracks for legendary artists Busta Rhymes, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, and others.
According to Eric, it is difficult for him to identify a favorite artist or song, having such an inherent love for music. However, he favors 60’s & 70’s classic rock; jazz, and jazz-rock fusion; and he was able to rattle-off a few “architects of rock” who have influenced his style and inspired him musically as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Santana and Frank Zappa just to name a few.
New York City native, now Trinity resident, Eric along with other talented musicians, founded The Eric Anderson Band four years ago, and their popular sound continues to rock fans and followers throughout Tampa Bay! And when Eric is not performing with the band, you can catch him performing solo acoustic shows as well.
Eric’s Mom had more to do with his professional life than simply introducing him to the beauty of the guitar. She and family-owned Synergy Ad Specialties, Inc., welcomed Eric aboard over ten years ago, where he currently serves as Vice President.

He is past-president and remains active in Trinity Business Association. He is a member/ambassador for Trinity Odessa Chamber of Commerce, and sits on the Board of Directors for the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce, after having served as past-chairman of the Ambassadors.
