Egan, Jeff and I are THRILLED to welcome the newest addition to our band/family – Chris Arwady! I met Chris through our mutual friend and amazing sax player, Destiny “TK” Pivonka. TK and her band “Heartless Pariah” host a weekly pro jam every Tuesday night at Moe’s Tavern in Chicago. Chris and I hit it off instantly – on and off the stage! I was immediately amazed by Chris’s insane musical dexterity, technical skill and vast catalogue of songs to choose from. Chris is also a wonderfully talented songwriter, and the guys and I are psyched to write with him on our next songwriting retreat in June!
Chris was raised in a musical family and started playing music at the age of 9 on a $100 classical guitar from Costco. After a year, shortly after the release of Santana’s “Supernatural”, he bought a secondhand Silvertone electric out of the Chicago Tribune classified ads with saved allowance, opening the doors to his first real awakening to the awesome power of rock ‘n roll.
