Balian, plus a crowd of 200 persons in the City Hall of Cegled which is located outside of Budapest.

Erskine donated a large collection of instruments and memorabilia, spanning his entire career as drummer, recording artist, record producer, musical instrument innovator, composer and educator. Erskine is also the founder of Fuzzy Music, a CD label that has come to represent what an artist-owned label may achieve. Fuzzy's latest 2 albums, The Trio ~ Live at Charlie O's" and The Avatar Sessions ~ The Music of Tim Hagans" are both receiving rave reviews and reactions from listeners and critics world-wide.
