Eric "Travis" Wilson relocated to Las Vegas from Seattle in early 2003. Prior to that he was the leader of the world's only Country-Metal-Rap band, Travis Shredd and the Good Ol' Homeboys. He released three CDs - Headbanger's Squaredance, 668: The Neighbor Of The Beast, and Nashville Drive-By.all still available, for those who absolutely must have the Country-Metal-Rap experience.
Eric played music as a one-man band twice monthly at New Horizons in Seattle.one of the world's largest and most opulent swingers' clubs.and also at numerous "traditional" nightclubs. For his first year in Las Vegas he played every Friday and Saturday night at the Red Rooster.one of the world's most notoriously sleazy swinger's clubs. On a more respectable note, he has also performed his solo show at the Flamingo, Mandalay Bay, and Eldorado casinos.
Eric has played guitar for Andrea Boccelli at the Latin Grammys at Mandalay Bay. He has also played guitar and bass with Las Vegas legend Lon Bronson and sung with Vegas Latina sensation Claudine Castro. He has played jazz drums at the Monte Carlo in Houdini's Lounge and at the Double Down. His Travis Shredd band reunited for "Slamstock," a huge private party at Penn Jillette's house, and again for two wild nights at Sapphire, "the world's largest gentlemen's club."
Eric has been playing music professionally since age 14. He taught sound engineering for fifteen years at the Art Institute of Seattle and at the Art Institute of Las Vegas. He was the sound engineer for the Penn and Teller show at the Rio hotel and casino for two and a half years. He was the sound editor on the feature film The Aristocrats. His other audio clients include HBO, ESPN2, CBS, BBC, and the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office. He was Wayne Newton's monitor engineer at Harrah's. He is currently the head sound engineer at the Luxor Atrium Showroom, running sound for Fantasy, Carrot Top, and Menopause, The Musical. And he's really good friends with Las Vegas' "Most Colorful Character," Monti Rock.
