As benefits go, there are certainly more dramatic causes. But the simple fact is people shouldn’t steal things. And people really shouldn’t steal brand new tenor-saxophones. Not in the middle of December, and not from someone as fiercely decent as Christopher B. Neal.

Chicagoans – you can’t have your tenor saxophone stolen out of the Green Room of a club when you just played a 90 minute Blues set. That’s just horsesh*t. And it really hurts. So we’re all going to band together and correct this simple, specific imbalance in the universe.

He’s the fifth hardest working man in Chicago music, and it’s going to be a white-hot party.

Get yourself to this show!!


Do you need bass for your music?

I can gladly record songs at the ole’ home studio.

I always strive to find the right bass line for each song or beat, making sure you’re left with the feeling that it is the only bass line that should/could exist for that song.

Home studio set up including 24 bit/192 kHZ audio recording.

Tons of different bass tones to choose from for your specific recording.

B15N Ampeg fliptop amp for the vintage tone junkies, or super clean and modern DI.

Reasonable rates. Really reasonable!
