Christopher Nichols! The man with more chops than a steakhouse and more beats than a borscht factory!
*brief intermission while Christopher kicks his pun editor's ass*
Christopher cut his teeth on classic rock such as Queen, the Who, and Led Zeppelin, and further sharpened the old canines on British blues such as Free, Cream, and early Fleetwood Mac. Later he polished up the molars by incorporating funk techniques and influences to create his own personal sound. This uniquely sculpted set of pearly whites has received plaudits from several professional blues and jazz musicians (his actual set of pearly whites has also won several bands a loyal female following).

He's got rudiments! "But Chris," you may ask, "what the hell are rudiments?" Who cares? What they are is SICK and Chris has LOTS of them!
Christopher has been playing for a number of years. He has been a founding member of two rock bands in that time (still playing with one of them), as well as being the usual drummer for a local singer/guitarist. He has also sat in with a local, veteran blues band on numerous occasions.
Currently, Christopher is the drummer in Vancouver rock-blues band, the Love It or Leave It.
Christopher is also available for session work, whether in the studio or live. Though his specialties lie in rock, blues, and funk, he is capable of playing a variety of genres including folk, pop, electronica, and hip-hop. However, he is always keen to try anything and you need only ask. He has no problems with stage fright, puts on a good show, wears deodorant, and makes sure to clip his toenails before hoving around the studio barefoot (but always wears shoes onstage).
Or maybe you want to learn to become a drummer yourself? In that case, Chris can teach your white ass how to groove! (offer does not cater exclusively to white people)
