Beats & Instruments- The Backpacker Series with Dream Team One

Swiss Chris is a force of nature behind the drum kit... Many people who recognize Swiss from the Hip-Hop scene know him as a human drum machine or a break beat encyclopedia, which he is, but he is also a consummate rhythmist versed in a multitude of styles. As a jazz player, Swiss has performed with bop, big band and fusion ensembles. He is a veteran of the NYC funk and R&B scene. He has toured with Grammy nominated blues/jazz legend James Blood Ulmer and Chicago born blues prodigy Ladell Mclin.

He has performed with Ejigayayu Shawbabaw (Gigi), a pre-eminent name in the history of Ethiopian music. Swiss has performed with renowned Iranian vocalist Halle. His hip-hop credentials, which include working with artists such as Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Mos Def, Dead Prez, are too extensive to list. Swiss has just completed 4 years touring as the drummer and musical director for multi- platinum, R&B star John Legend.

Chris will be conducting a book signing of his best selling book, Modern Drum Set Stickings, after the show.
