Chris has played at our brewery (Abandon Brewing Co.) a bunch of times, and we always love having him here! He's a great talent who can play more instruments than I can name. He always brings a lot of energy and a good mix of genres that gets people dancing and having fun. Whether he's playing by himself or in a group of musicians, Chris puts out a great sound!” - Jeff Hillebrandt
