Chris Schalick is a Portland area gigging, multi-instrumentalist musician performing solo and with cover and all originals bands Chris Schalick and the Automatics, Dandelion Surfers, Mystery Machine, the Blue Birds, Sonny Sunshine and the Starfish, and The Holy Grail. My focus is rhythmic, fun loving, chill, groove music and adding a danceable twist on crowd favorites from the 60's through the 2000's. I pride myself on bringing new material and event-based, venue-appropriate theatrical themes to every show.
I host and participate in open mics around the New England and perform in a variety of venues throughout Southern Maine, the Boston area, New York and Connecticut.
My studio work is currently focused on post-production for my third and solo debut album.
