Chris Weigers Chris Weigers

Chris is a veteran of many music environments having played with such artists as: Lothlorien, Ken Makanda McIntyre, Jaki Byard, John Abercrombie, Paula Atherton, Don Celenza, The Zen Trickster's, The Jim Pin Band, Satya, Willie Steel, New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble, and Eastern Standard Time, to name a few. He studied privately with Richard Davis and attended SUNY Old Westbury under Ken Makanda McIntyre earning a B.A. in 1982. The “Horizons” cd showcases Weigers' compositions, bass playing, and teamwork as the music allows all participants to shine. ArushA “Look Up” is Chris' debut as a bandleader. The music features several compositions by Weigers and two songs by guitarist/vocalist Dave Diamond. The goal here is to bring together elements of R & B, Jazz, and Ska to form a style that is at once fun, positive, and musically satisfying, while always being danceable as well.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
