In 2009 in an unprecedented turn of events, Eric Charles moves to Venice California to pursue and market the Music of Animation. In a bold and well planned move, Eric now resides in paradise on the beach near the Origin of the Doors and the Jim Morrison Building. Currently the Band is working on the presentation of The Music of Animation to Industry Professionals.

Animation Gig






Greg Smart agrees to appear in the live presentation of Animation.

Last year Eric severed his finger on a floodlight bulb that broke while being changed in a freak accident thus spawning the question, how many Erics does it take to change a light bulb. Finally after a 2 and 1/2 hour surgery to reconnect the nerves, arteries and tendons and a year in recovery, with very lucky results in healing, Eric is currently pursuing  the project of redeveloping the live show.
