016 – Eric Hernandez (Bruno Mars): The journey to the Super Bowl

In this podcast I talked to Eric Hernandez, the brother of and drummer for Bruno Mars. Eric invited me over to his house where we talked about everything from his upcoming performance at the Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show, performing at the Grammy Awards, to the importance of grooving and putting family first. Eric Hernandez has been playing professionally since he was a young kid so being on stage is nothing new to him.  But there’s nothing bigger than playing on the Super Bowl.  Find out how they got there……. This is a VERY informative interview and you may even want to take notes!
