Eventually, Chris started hosting open mic’s at the local coffee shop’s and bar’s in the area. Chris has worked with several notable musicians and has participated in several moments that defined Chris’ drive, dedication, and mission; to play music professionally everyday. Session work for: D12, members of P-Funk, and the likes of DJ Assault, Chris grew his experience and had the opportunity to “fill in” when needed. Chris was always involved in music on every level, from recording friends in his in-house studio, to filling in for bands in various roles on drums, guitar, or bass.
