  • Chris baum project
    10 piece horn driven' / soul / r'n'b/ funk

    THE CHRIS BAUM PROJECT IS A SEASONED SOUL/R&B BAND IN THE WEST COAST MUSIC SCENE. Chris Baum's Project is currently a 10-piece Soul/R&B band; however there are over 40+ musicians that are proud to be a part of the Baum Sorority/Fraternity working with Baum since 1994. At almost every performance there are former members showing up to sit-in with the band. The Chris Baum Project attracts many dancers as well as regular attendees who take in the show as a 'concert'—not necessarily to dance at all—a testament to the band’s ability to entertain on the merits of musical prowess, Chris' arranging chops, and most importantly, the ability of the band to stretch out and ‘play’ — giving the performances an organic quality not often heard. Members: Chris Baum, Keyboards and Vocals; Debbie Earnhart and Alyssa Schwary, Vocals; Mike Doolin, Guitar and Vocals; Doug Knoyle, Drums; Calen Uhlig, Bass; Derek Simms and Giancarlo Viviano, Trumpets; and Pete Petersen and Michelle Medler, Saxophones. The Chris Baum Project's repertoire covers music from the great Soul and R&B artists of the modern era, and includes songs by Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Dr. John, Steely Dan, Average White Band, Bill Withers, Chicago, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Amy Winehouse, Etta James, Michael Jackson and many more.
