Chris has been banging on things for as long as he can remember. Formal drum lessons started at the age of eight in Buffalo, New York. His first professional gigs began at fifteen in the bars and dance halls of Richmond, Virginia. At the fork in the road between a classical percussion degree and a Colorado skiing/climbing life, he headed west and never looked back. Chris has played with everyone from Gary Rossington (Lynyrd Skynyrd) to saxophonist Harry Allen (Tony Bennett). “Free Bird” meets “I Left My Heart In San Francisco”! Chris has also performed with just about all the usual suspects in the Roaring Fork Valley over the past eighteen years.
