spring Started playing with Stevie Gurr's band at Crazy Jack's in Burbank.
His band called Stormy Wednesday Blues or Stevie Gurr & his Friends, Stevie Gurr on guitar and vocals, Sheldon Gomberg on bass and Don Heffington on drums, played there every Wednesday.
Gurr says,
I've known about Chris for a long time, because of a friend of mine, who was from London, he used to play a lot of things, like in the 60's and early 70's some jazz things. About three or four months ago, Sheldon Gomberg, the bass player mentioned that Chris was in town and he was looking to play. And I said 'Really?' So he invited Chris down to the jam that I did and we played together for a long time. I had obviously respect for him and he heard me play and understood that I like to play. I told him 'Would you like to play right now?' I determined to play as good as I could, so that he would feel inspired, get up and play. After two songs, he got up and started playing, which was great. One we played together for the first time was wonderful. Because he has such good years, he is instinct and so strong and very respectful man. Since then, we just try to play more and more together, and we play really well altogether.
