The Lead singer for all three of Erik's band was Mikee Bridges known for starting TOMFest where Tragedy Ann played a reunion concert in 2000 and 2009.

Erik would later leave the music industry to run Rock for Life full-time. Both Tragedy Ann and Sometime Sunday would appear on Rock for Life CD Compilations.
