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.
