ETTALONG BOWLING CLUB

Chris has been involved in the entertainment industry for most of his life. After studying guitar and piano at a very young age, Chris played in a number of bands in the 70s and also performed as a solo act. In the 90s he utilised his talents as a DJ, game show host, compere and voice over artist. He has worked with Garry Sweet, recording artist Chris Franklyn and Carlotta. He has performed as guest artist at Jupiters Casino Gold Coast (QLD) Seagulls Night Club (QLD) Birswood Casino (WA) and Ettalong Beach Club NSW. Performed internationally on cruise ships in Hawaii, Alaska and Europe. He formed Klassic Blak in 2000 and has enjoyed great success to the current day. Chris has a big local reputation with a big sound, impressive stage set and light display, high energy dance party show. He has a huge range of Classic Hits covering 40 years of great music. His versatility ensures something for everyone from love songs and ballads, a splash of country, rock & roll and of course classic rock.

Chris is dedicated to entertaining the audience. His experience working with live bands, in cabaret style one man stage performances, show bands, piano lounge bars, recorded music backings, electric and acoustic guitars makes him a very versatile performer.

Chris thrives on and specializes in club shows and other corporate functions. Chris has toured as far as the Queensland Gold Coast, to Cobar, Wollongong and Albury . Not to mention performing at corporate functions in New Zealand. In 2010 Chris was asked to replace the current lead vocalist and front man with the Central Coast RocknRoll “hobby band” The Rebel Rousers. Within 12 months the band more than doubled its work rate. He enjoyed great success as lead vocalist, front man, promotions, booking and marketing manager, performing atvenues from Coffs Harbour in northern NSW through Nambucca Heads, Port Macquarie, Newcastle, The Central Coast, to Sydney, Albury in the South and Tamworth i
However, there was an element in the band that wanted their music to go in a different direction. Sadly the band boss agreed, so after putting the band on the map, Chris left.
The Rebel Rousers faded away and two years later disappeared off the entertainment map completely.
In 2014 Chris was asked to again replace a front man and lead vocalist, this time in the Sydney based, well established Midnight Drifters RocknRoll band. Chris’ talents, vocal dynamics, experience, network of contacts, enthusiasm, passion and overall input into this band saw its repertoire double, friend’s base double, work load and popularity double, public profile become more dominant and once again travelling all over the state and interstate playing venues and festivals, cruise ships and everything and anything in between until the present day in 2019.
