Reverend Chris, piano and vocals, relocated to Philadelphia following a decade in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina destroyed his home.

He has been a member of Brides of Jesus, Restless Natives, New Orleans Juice, Ellen Rogers, Balding Vincents, Dodge City Junkies, Roger Learnard Band, Alryn Wolters, Naked Nuns of Soul, SubStream Quartet. He has performed with many music greats including Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Irvin Mayfield, George Porter Jr., Mark Van Allen (Blueground Undergrass), Russell Batiste (the funky Meters), Charles Neville, Ian Neville, and “Mean” Willie Green (the Neville Brothers), just to name a few. Past gigs include the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Philadelphia Folk Fest, the Palace Casino in Biloxi, Fairmont Hotel’s Sazarec Lounge House Band, Bourbon Street’s Storyville Jazz Parlour House Band and led a New Orleans Jazz Brunch at Philadelphia’s Le Cochon Noir....
