Chris has the licks to cover many styles of music and plays them all superbly. With smooth vocals and sweet harmonies, brings a wholeness to the band.
You may have already seen him filling in for us. We has sooo many compliments we just had to have him!
A sweet goodbye to Billy Shew, whom you will see around town, with his rocking blues bands and jams. Best to him.

Do remember that AUBURN EAGLES and the other Fraternal lodges need to have you sign in if you are not a member. If you frequent these places please consider membership. They all do great charity work, support scholarships and work closely with local causes. They do have limits on signing folks in (by law) and may have to refuse entry after a number of visits. Membership is not usually expensive and your membership helps support them. Participation in things are by choice and will not be forced upon folks. Support them as they book your live dance music, host karaoke, host DJ nites, shows, bingo and put on dinners. You will meet new friends!!
Do good things --join them!!!
