Chris O'Neal / Bio

I was born into a musically inclined family. Having such strong musical influences from both parents’ sides, I learned to play the guitar and was proficient by the age of 13. I continued to play throughout my teenage years. As I got older, I wanted to hear and see the professionals, so I began to sneak into some of the local bars. I remember seeing them up on stage, under the lights, rockin’ the entire house, and the audience going wild, clappin' and hollerin’ after each song. After that first time, I knew wanted that! I started going around and speaking to local musicians. I finally was able to work my way in as a bass player for a local group. Since then, I have played in several different bands and have performed in almost every local bar and honky-tonk in southeast Georgia. I’ve also played private parties, and gatherings in locations like Moose Lodges, VFW's, and etc. In 2000, I played with a band that circuited through Georgia, Virginia, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Arkansas. The bands I have played with have had success in small local venues but none have shared my passion to go beyond the part time, extra dough, a little drinking money status.
After God and family, my love is my music. I took a few years off to do some thinking and regroup but now I’m back and I am ready take it to the max this time!
