Bass guitar

Chris has been playing bass guitar since he was 16.  Growing up as a "90's kid", he fell in love with the grunge and rock movement led by bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Stone Temple Pilots.  It was the music of this era that move Chris to want to play rock music and join a band.  In the 17+ years since then he has played in a variety of cover and original rock bands playing shows all throughout the tri-state area.  


Now as a member of Contraband Chris gets to return to the era of music that led him to pick up the bass guitar in first place.  Getting to play the songs that Scott poured his heart and soul into, and getting to recreate the iconic bass lines of Rob DeLeo and Duff McKagan is a true privilege that he can't wait to bring to a stage near you.
