Custom Bands
The right combination of musicians for your event depends on the kind of music you'd like to hear, the number of guests, the size of the venue, and your budget. From quiet background music played by a solo performer to a rollicking R&B band complete with singers and a horn section for after-dinner dancing and celebration, Chris can make a customized match of the music and the musicians to your plans.

Solo / Duo
For a small venue or more intimate setting, consider a duo consisting of guitar and another instrument such as piano, bass, vocals, saxophone, trumpet, or vibes.

A trio can build up the excitement of your event while keeping things in the background. Trios with bass and drums, or piano and bass are more suitable for medium sized rooms and/or for those that want more focus on the entertainment.

Full Band
A quartet or larger will definitely get the party started and could even result in dancing! For larger events, Chris can provide quartets, quintets or larger ensembles with vocals, full rhythm section and horns.
