The Chase Brothers are the music director of The James Brown Dance Party and Jazz Is PHSH as well as long time members of original touring acts, Black Eyed Susan and Emotive.
The Chase Brothers as a duo writing team have brought together a number of their co-collaborators to begin working on The Chase Brothers debut record that is expected out some time in late 2017.
He can be heard on such hits as “Hot Pants,” “Papa Don’t Take No Mess,” “Make it Funky,” "Get on the Good Foot," "Doin' it to Death," and instrumentals like “Pass the Peas”, “Gimme Some More” and others.
He's on seminal albums like "Revolution of the Mind: Recorded Live at the Apollo, Vol. III," and can be seen in many film and tv performances, including "Live in Zaire" and all the Soul Train appearances.
Chris devotes a large amount of his time performing, recording, and touring with the band Snarky Puppy. With this band and Lalah Hathaway, he won a Grammy Award in 2014 for the Best R&B Performance.
Some of the artists he has had the opportunity to perform/record with include Banda Magda, Jon Hendricks, Lalah Hathaway, Jason Marsalis, Bernard Wright, Clyde Stubblefield, Ari Hoenig, Jeff Coffin, and N’dambi.
Chris has actively been involved with educational activities. He was an adjunct instructor of Saxophone at the University of Texas -Arlington for two years. He has also taught clinics and saxophone lessons at many schools, colleges, and conservatories around the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
Apart from playing the saxophone, flute, and clarinet, Chris has begun to explore making hip hop and electronic music with the MPC. This has led to him DJ'ing as well. His DJ name is DJ Boomtown. He has hosted nights of music in the US, Canada, and the UK as a DJ.
Look to see what’s next on the horizon for Chris Bullock, as he continues to explore new and challenging musical environments.
