Chip Fitzgerald GUITAR- Vocals
Chip has done it all. Coming from a family of performers; his mom a dancer and his dad a harmonica player. His bother is also an accomplished guitarist.
Chip started his first band in high school in 1964. "The Disciples". They still play shows around Ohio after 55 years (Damn).
From there- "We moved o New York. We opened new Years eve at the "Electric Circus" with the Grateful Dead. That same night we played the cast party for the Russian ballet with Barishnikov in attendance. What a memory! It was during this time period that we bumped into some dude named Jimi Hendrix at 'The Scene" night club. We recorded "the Hippy Song", "Jody Man",and "I I'm Dynamite Baby". All three song were recently released on you tube. "Slim Harpo, he knew the Blues. "
Returning to cleveland Chip reconnected and went back on the road.
Chip started a new band ,"Chip & Friends" and headed to Boulder, Colorado where they had great success. For personal reasons, Chip returned to Cleveland. "I got a call from a friend who asked if I wanted to play with "some older guy" named Guitar Slim He was the real deal, playing real blues. well 25 years later Slim and I were a team. He taught me the meaning of "Real Blues". I had chops for sure, but he knew how to make the guitar talk, cry, and Roar. Slim passed this past August leaving a hole in my heart."
I'm excited to be playing with Jarred Goldweber and The Park Brothers, an indy blues group with enormous talent.
I'm excited to write the rest of the story!
