I just wanted to let you know that I have been asked to perform at this years “Ballpark Unplugged.” Ballpark Unplugged is an acoustic showcase for area musicians to perform for the opportunity of future gigs at McFadden’s @ the Ballpark as well as opportunities with the Phillies, other local companies and booking agents.
Where: McFadden’s @ Citizen’s Bank Park
Date: Wednesday January 26th
Time: 8pm – 12am
I will be performing my 20 minute acoustic set…hopefully sometime between 8:30 and 9:30. If you can make it out to Citizen’s Bank Park on Wednesday Night that would be awesome!
It has been brought to my attention that promoting this event and the support that I can drum up is just as important as my performance. If they see that I have brought out a good crowd it will heighten my appeal to them.
Hope to see you at the Ballpark!
The Chris & John Duo put on Rock Concert for WVES!
West Vincent Elementary School was celebrating it’s Red Ribbon Week, which is a week long tribute to being drug free. This year’s Theme – “West Vincent Elementary School Rocks It Drug Free!” After getting the request to perform, I immediately called on superstar musician and good friend John Valerio to help me put on the show.
We both took a look at our respective song lists; scanning them for curse words, adult themes, and drug references and were able to come up with a 1 hour setlist to entertain the 500+ students of WVES. (A lot of thanks goes out to John for making sure a majority of our songs were written while the core of our audience was alive.) John and I took turns on vocals and I played a bunch of percussion (on my cajon) for John while he sang. We both had a lot of fun and the audience was terrific, greeting us with a roaring applause after each song. During the show we successfully got the “Say No to Drugs” message across to the children and towards the end, brought up a surprise guest (Music Teacher – Mrs. Silva) to help sing the song “Wonderwall.” All in all it was a very successful concert.
Thanks to West Vincent Elementary School for having us!
We had a great time.
Mark your calendars for Saturday November 12th. I will be playing a duo show with my friend Clay McElwee at The Brickside Grille. The Brickside Grille is located in the Eagleview Town Center at 540 Wellington Square in Exton. Music starts at 9pm! (they take reservations so call ahead to reserve a table! 610-321-1600)
This is my first time playing at The Brickside Grille and I am very excited! So many of you have asked when I was going to play here…well I finally am, so come out to this great venue and let’s have some fun! For those of you who don’t know Clay, he is great. You really should come out to the show, if only to watch Clay play his guitar. He rocks!!! Learn more about Clay here…www.claysmusic.com
Hope to see you at the show.
