WHO IS THE

CHRISTOPHER AMES

BAND ANYWAY?

Today's Christopher Ames Band is a culmination of several years of Raw Story - Battered Faith - Rock-n-Roll.

 

"Fractured world and tender hearts, Every motion leaves a mark as permanent as ink on the skin of our souls." In an almost prophetic way, this line from the title track of their new CD, Emotional Tattoo, provided the map for the honesty, brokenness, and unity that would transform these 3 stick figures into a band of brothers.

 

Differing from earlier Christopher Ames solo records, Emotional Tattoo is truly a band endeavor. The songs were written, wrangled, and reshaped by the full trio. All artistic decisions and directions were hashed out over coffee in the drummer's kitchen.

 

Stand or fall, this is  the Christopher Ames Band.

GUITAR AND VOCALS

 

Started out on Elvis, moved to the Beatles and never looked back. Honed my early chops singing along to Sgt Pepper while playing a tennis racket in front of the mirror in my parent's room. 7 bands, 23 years on the road, 3 EP's, 14 albums and 18 guitars (at the moment...) later, I am finally getting it right with this band and this record.

JABARE MCKINSTRY

BASS AND SWAGGER

 

I can remember riding in my uncle's car listening to James Brown, his Cadillac Bose speakers pounding the tight bass lines played by Bootsy Collins. I knew then I would one day play the bass. Even though I dabbled playing other instruments and singing solos at church, the Bass was home for me. I enjoyed the fact that I could change the mood of a song by just playing 1 note. I'm blessed to be a part of the MTD family who make some of the greatest basses in the world.

DAN CLAUSEN
DRUMS AND BGV'S

 

February 9th, 1964. Ed Sullivan. The Beatles. I knew then and there that I wanted to be Ringo (although maybe a little taller). Played my heart out all the way through high school with my best buds. After a 30 (yes, 30) year hiatus, and with the encouragement of my family and those best buds, I got back behind the kit and have never looked back. And, all these years later, I’m still blessed with what I call “The Curse of Ringo”… a left leading lefty behind a right handed kit. Only a drummer would understand the mayhem it creates.
