Bio

Immediately after we opened for the New Jersey State Fair, the Performing Arts director said she wanted us back again (and we're "on" for 2009). Why? Because we are a well-organized, low-maintenance, punctual, and well-prepared group - ready to present suitable, solid shows.
We love writing and performing moving, super-catchy tunes - because we, too, love to listen to good music. We perform our original "rockers," ballads, and love songs. And, thankfully, all ages say they enjoy our music.
What sets us apart? A lot of people tell us how hungry they are for good music and good lyrics - and they like that about our shows. That's it, and that means everything to us. They just come up and spontaneously say how much they enjoy our songs.
Our story: I (Christopher Welch) was encouraged to write songs by a friend. And then I played them for other people ... aside from mom. (She can actually be tough.) And folks were impressed. I then met Dan Thompson (a great pianist and talent) and expanded on my songs, and co-wrote others with Dan. But I wanted to get these songs out to larger audiences - from my local library - to the New Jersey State Fair (where I used to sit at the back of the tent). So we added great members, and we worked to make it happen. We also found Leanne along the way, who has a singing voice that amazes audiences (and me).
But Dan puts our primary intention best: He once mentioned that a teacher of his told him, "Don't impress people ... move them." I think it's best to "move" people - and to make them feel things deeply. So, show by show, that's what we set out to do.
I've been to Nashville to get my songs licensed by major labels and artists. But I feel that some of our originals are beautiful secrets that can't be kept until then. So we play them out to increase interest - and to please others.
As a communication specialist, I promote all of my shows, alongside my venue clients/hosts, to attract media coverage and music-lovers. (We've been featured in the Daily Record and elsewhere.) As a member of ASCAP and NSAI, and as a voting member for the Grammys, I want to continue songwriting, performing, and promoting our songs ... and, yes ... entertaining and "moving" music-lovers - worldwide.
