SEEKINGVocalist, Vocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.
RU Grad with a Music and Business Degree who has been Recording/Producing, Performing and Leading my own bands for over a decade. I have played with many bands, been on tour a few times and am now looking to play with like minded flexible musicians who enjoy giving their all to music.
My Business has expanded to include my Production Company "RC Productions" which houses a roster of Musicians which I have worked with including my group "Just A Groove".
My Home Studio has had the blessing of releasing "Just A Groove's" first DEMO in JUNE 2019 featuring 10 specially arranged cover tunes along with RickyB on Lead Vocals and myself rapping, harmony vocals and sax. Please take a quick listen and tell me what you think.
Please check out my website: www.JustAGroove.com to see what we have been up to. New single releases, gig calendar and to contact Chris about booking Just A Groove for your next event.
More about what you can expect out of my work ethic and professionalism...
I bring many years of diverse experience to the table which allows me to present myself as wise beyond my years.
I value the following virtues when running my own group or working with yours:
-Do your homework to learn the tunes to the best of your ability outside of rehearsal
-Open professional transparent communication
-Receptive to feedback of the other band members during rehearsals and other times as needed
-Clear reasonable vision regarding Set List, Venue, Logistics, Pay AND Short/Long Term Goals to support how we will get there
Just to give you all an idea of my work ethic see the Real Thyme Band Videos. That Gig I played without a single rehearsal... Not bad right?
Currently I am playing/booking gigs in VA, MD and DC surrounding areas and always enjoy playing with musicians of many styles and backgrounds. I guarantee that I am a solid flexible musician with a great work ethic and personality. Let me know how I can help your band or recording project!
