Eric Stanglin has been playing and shouting the blues since he first picked up a guitar and found an old medicine bottle to use as a slide. Eric formed The Juke Joint Heroes in autumn 2010 after meeting fiery young guitarist JiřÍ Maršíček and veteran bassist Jan Cisař at a jam session in Prague. After trying out a succession of drummers, the band finally found the right man for the job in Jan Podzimek, one of the Czech Republic's top drummers. Together, Eric and the Juke Joint Heroes have played hundreds of shows over the past few years, recorded their debut album Whistling Past the Graveyard in 2012 and continue to build their fan base in Prague and beyond.
