Chris Thayer plays acoustic-driven pop rock, with clear folk and R & B influences. Chris offers live shows which feature mostly upbeat, bouncy electric and acoustic tunes with melodies that scream 'audience sing along.' He has been playing all over the Western United States, in such venues as Hard Rock Cafe, Viper Room, B.B. King's and the Greek Theatre. He has opened for such acts as the Bacon Brothers (featuring Kevin and Michael Bacon), Dread Zeppelin, Dave Wakeling of English Beat/General Public, Little River Band, the Fabulous Thunderbirds and Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers. In 2001 he performed for two weeks on James Taylor's 'Pull Over Tour' in Northern, CA, and Phoenix, AZ. For the PHOENIX CD realeas party, Chris opened for STYX at the Coussoulis Arena in San Bernardino, CA. With energetic material and a quirky sense of humor, each show promises to be a 'feel-good' experience. Chris will be releasing his new CD, CHASING VENUS in September of 2005.
