Name of Band: The Chrome Boy
What is the meaning of the band name?: For decades, Joe Satriani has used the chrome boy guitar on stage and since this is show is a Tribute to Joe Satriani, why not go with it?
Who are the band members and what roles do they play in the band?: I have always been a one man show. It keeps booking, set up and tear down clean. The Joe Satriani tracks are supplied online so I just use those for the show.
How long has the band been together and how did everybody come together?: Well, there isn't a band at all. It's just me, but The Chrome Boy project came about a couple years ago. Very few people in the world can accurately replicate his music, feel and sound and with decades of practice, I put on a pretty good show.
What genre is your music and what are your major musical influences?: This particular project of mine would be Instrumental Rock with Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page as influences.
How did you get your start in music?: That's a long story, but the short end of it is, I was skating one day in Monterey, California and came across a group of skaters and went back to their place and they picked up guitars and I thought it was the coolest thing.
What's next for the band?: To book more shows and get onto larger stages. This is a very very special show and if you have never seen Satriani perform in person, this is the next best thing.
Where can the audience find your music?: All Joe Satriani music can be found everywhere music is sold. And Jon Robert Quinn (The Chrome Boy) music can be found in the same place.
