BIOGRAPHY
>

Eric "E-Panda" Hernandez was born in Brooklyn, New York. He is the son of Brooklyn native Pete Hernandez, who was the percussionist for Love & Money and Cecilio & Kapono. Eric started drumming at the tender age of 4 and playing professionally at the age of 10 in Hawaii. He played 6 nights a week for 8 years with "The Lovenote Show" a Variety show paying tribute to the music of the 50's, 60's and 70's. It was this unrelenting schedule that bred consistency in his playing and made him familiar with most styles, be it soul, funk, reggae, rock, pop and anything else the music demands of him. Eric quickly gained notoriety for his talent on the drums and became one of Hawaii's most sought after drummers. In the summer of 1995 Eric took his talent and dreams to Hollywood California. He immediately joined the Alternative/ Pop band "Louie Says" who was signed to RCA records. He was their session/touring drummer.

Throughout the years he continued to play live and do session work for various artists such as Menudo, Travie Mc Coy and the Platinum producing team called "The Smeezingtons."

Eric is currently the session and tour drummer for Platinum Producer and Grammy Award winning recording artist Bruno Mars. Eric has appeared on numerous television programs worldwide including but not limited to; Superbowl XLVIII Halftime Show, The Grammys, Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, The View, American Idol, X-Factor, The Voice, MTV Video Music Awards, MTV European Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, VH-1 Do Something Awards, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Much Music Awards, The Brit Awards just to name a few.

Eric has had the pleasure of sharing the stage on drums with Sting, Lenny Kravitz, Rihanna, Ziggy & Damian Marley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ed Sheeran, Mayer Hawthorne, Taio Cruz, Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley), Monica, Keri Hilson, K'Naan, B.o.B, Janelle Monae, Carmit Bachar (Pussy Cat Dolls), Tre Hardson (the Pharcyde), Kim Hill ( Black Eyed Peas), Travie McCoy (Gym Class Heroes), Jeff Bhaskar (Kanye West) and the Far East Movement..
