ERIC SANDERS

Eric has been a staple in the LMB universe for the past 3 decades. According to Liz, “Eric’s passion, professionalism, work ethic, and dynamic proficiency have always made him the perfect drummer for the kind of shows I like to do.” Originally from New York, Eric holds a BS in Music Education from Penn State and went to NYU for his Master's Degree in Jazz Performance. He is one of the main drum instructors at the Atlanta Institute of Music, and has been teaching, gigging, and recording in Atlanta since 1996 touring throughout the U.S. and overseas, working with numerous groups and artists that run the gamut of musical styles.

FUJI FUJIMOTO

Fuji is one of the most sought-after bassists in Atlanta. Liz says, “Playing with Fuji in other projects it became obvious that she was a great fit for LMB.” An accomplished pianist and composer, her expert facility and passion for creating great musical experiences with others also make her a great addition to the dynamic and explosive live musical performances fans have come to enjoy from LMB shows. Fuji is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and holds a master certificate in orchestration for film and TV from Berklee Online.
