El Niguel Country Club
Hidden away in the valley of Laguna Niguel, El Niguel Country Club is the “best kept secret” in Orange County. Our traditional 18-hole Championship golf course is a special experience for all levels of players.
My performances range from fully interactive shows where the audience and myself craft a set list as we go along. Depending on the situation my performance can also be subtle background ambiance to create just the right atmosphere for the occasion. I am very easy to work with, prompt, professional and intend to make the event one to remember.
Eric is a pop/ rock, soul, folk & jazz acoustic guitarist and singer.
He has spent the last 13 years performing in New England and since 2016, in CA at concert venues, restaurants, bars and private social/ corporate events.
Tailoring performances for a successful event every time is important to him. He has a large repertoire, with a fun mix of upbeat songs across genres - from recent hits back through the past 6 decades of pop music. He also loves playing original and traditional blues with a bottleneck slide and National resonator, when appropriate.
In addition to solo work, Eric has always maintained roles in many bands as both performer and music director, which helps keep his song list growing.
A full time musician since graduating Berklee College of Music, Eric loves what he does. With the ability to provide his own sound reinforcement for any size venue and tailor material to any audience, Eric strives to make every gig a great one.
Thanks for your consideration!

Michael LeClerc is a Canadian singer/songwriter with a style reminiscent of Van Morrison, Dave Matthews or Jack Johnson. His sweet and soulful voice penetrates deeply, with a dream-like quality against an acoustic guitar that drifts between deftly executed finger-style to jangly strumming, and segues easily from love ballad to upbeat rocker. Currently located in Southern California, he is carving a niche for himself up and down the west coast, playing wineries, clubs and songwriter showcases from San Diego to Vancouver, Canada.
Fiercely independent, Michael has been playing since the age of seven, and always knew that music was his calling. Growing up in the rural, blue-collar community of Chatham, Ontario fueled his wanderlust, but like many artists, there were several turns in the road before he made the decision to commit to music full time. Some of his early vocations included picking tobacco and working in a corn mill, eventually leading him to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Business Development. After a few years living in Ireland and working with several prestigious hotels, he moved to the Cayman Islands, where his band Smooth Bill had the opportunity to open for top Canadian band The Tragically Hip in front of several thousand people. He has since played to many large audience, including the Twilight Concert Series in Del Mar, CA, andis just as comfortable playing on a big stage as his is to an intimate listening room audience.
In 2011, he released his first solo EP with producer Jim Wirt (Fiona Apple, Incubus, Hoobastank), titled Radio. Local terrestrial and internet radio began to pick up on the title track, leading to a three-month tour of California that soon segued into a permanent move. 2015 saw the release of a new self-titled EP, and he has been a featured performer in Renaissance Hotels’ RLife concert series, a program that in the past has hosted artists like Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke. Drawing comparisons to James Taylor, Jackson Brown and John Mayer, Michael’s instant appeal and warm stage presence invites the audience to come closer and listen to what he has to say.
Richard has performed all over the world. He plays many different genres of music and is in great demand! Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Elton John, Garth Brooks, Billy Joel, Eagles, Jack Johnson, Van Morrison, Bruce Hornsby, Bruce Springstein, Neil Young, Sting, Beatles, Sinatra, etc.
He also can provide beautiful instrumental piano background music for cocktail parties.
He is a local favorite and appears often in Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe and the Carlsbad area!
