Drums – Erik Haden
Erik grew up in Concordia, Ks. and has been crushing drums since the age of 7. It all started out in his Father’s music room when he would be in there listening to the various vinyl sounds his Dad played from all genres. From Little Richard, The Doobie Brothers, KISS and more, it all captivated the ear canals of a 7 yr old child. Never having formal drum lessons, Erik learned to play by watching others as well as simply closing his eyes and imagining a drum kit was right in front of him and mastering the art of “air drumming.” His passion for music and love for drums followed him through High School and into his adult life. Currently residing in Lawrence, Ks., he has had the privilege of performing with some of the best musicians in the area and continues to do so with Undercover. As you watch him play you’ll no doubt feel his energy and feel the heart behind the beat!
