CHRIS MULLIGAN BAND

BandRockSinger/Songwriter

You may get a different impression of the genre we fit into depending on the song. We have energy and we use it - feel, groove and meaningful lyrics, and improvisation - the energy of the moment. The studio is a great place to work and arrange, but the music really comes alive on the stage.

Biography

Really, there are two core members of this project. Scott Atkins and Chris Mulligan have been working together since meeting in 2000, and have been developing the feel of this project, as their no. 1 priority. Admittedly, the music is primary a rock feel, elements of jazz, country, fusion and folk peak in and out throughout much of the playlist of the band.

Darius McKinley is an extremely energetic and talented bassit who spends most of his time gigging, doing session work and anchoring the Mike Erb Band (another very talented songcrafter).

Paul Stouffer is an extrordinary pianist with both feet firmly rooted in jazz. He lends his talents to the recording and live performances and really twists the music into a fusion style by combining his jazz knowledge with the bands funky rock songs.
