The Chris Fast Band

Verified by it's Owner

Four-Piece Chicago Blues Band

The Chris Fast band is a high energy, traditional, four-piece Chicago Blues band, with a solid reputation as one of the hardest working, busiest blues bands in the greater San Diego area. Our venues range from private parties and small clubs, performances at low volume in an intimate setting, to large music festivals, and events that are taking place outdoors for a large audience on the big concert stage. The band is comfortable playing in any setting. Vocalist and harmonica man Chris Fast is a lifetime blues musician who has worked along side such legendary blues artists as Big Joe Turner, Percy Mayfield, Pee Wee Crayton, Big Mama Thornton, Smokey Wilson, Shakey Jake Harris, Rod Piazza, Hollywood Fats, and many others. He has opened blues shows for headliners BB King, Etta James, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, and was recently a featured musician at the West Coast Blues Festival in Riverside, CA. Chris Fast is an endorsed performing artist with Seydel Harmonicas, Germany. "Big Al” Schneider is the go to drummer for all the best blues musicians that San Diego has to offer. He toured the world with the Everly Brothers, was part of the formative Walker Brothers, and has worked with Kim Wilson, Anson Fundergurgh, Coco Montoya, Nathan James among other blues notables. Al always keeps that soulful rhythm pumping! Don Skelton is one of San Diego's premier bassists. He has shared the stage with piano player/singer Ike Turner, violist Dave Pike, sax players Tony Ortega and Eric Marienthal and jazz guitarist Wolf Marshall. Don is currently bassist for the OSO Big Band and was recently the bassist for the North Coast Symphony Orchestra. Whether it's blues, jazz or classical, Don can play it all!
