Newly updated for 2019

Chris has been a staple of Tampa Bay since 1995.

Making his bucket debut in Ybor City in December of 1995, Chris found a welcoming, excited fan base waiting for him. Since then, he has grown into what the Tampa Bay Rays called a "Fan Favorite".

Chris can currently be seen all around Tampa Bay, including home games for the Tampa Bay Rays, and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Chris began drumming at the age of nine, almost 40 years ago.

After years of private lessons, and school bands and drumline, both as a student and instructor, Chris became a member of DCI Magic of Orlando. This would prove to be a formative and meaningful period for Chris. It allowed him submerge himself in drumming, and crystalize not only his talent and skill, but his passion for the art.

After drum corp Chris found himself jumping head first into busking, a decision that would be criticized heavily by many in his life. However, time would prove that his career would be profitable, and full of joy. Chris's favorite part of his job is the people he gets to meet, and the smiles on the faces of his audience.
