The Chris Fast Band


By Eli Medellin

SAN DIEGO (November 18)

There is a new blues band in town.  The Chris Fast Band is a hot new blues band but they are no strangers to the San Diego music scene.  Vocalist and harp man Chris Fast and bass player Don Skelton had a band before called Chris Fast and Blues Blast.  Drummer Al Schneider is well known in the blues scene and has played with several local bands.  English Mike is a blues guitarist from the U.K. currently residing in north county San Diego.  The group made a connection at Chet Cannon’s Sunday Party On The Patio jam session at Downtown Cafe Bar & Grill and began rehearsing soon after, then made their debut at House of Blues this week.  They share a love for the more traditional blues and bring the smooth Chicago style blues to California.  Stay tuned to Boogie Magazine to find out where they will be playing next.
