Chris Woods came to us the old fashioned way… through Facebook. Oh right. The new fashioned way. I was immediately intrigued by his massive hair and enthusiastic message. But what really interested me was the combination of virtuoso violin playing with his passion for creating comedic stories. He is a very in the moment performer and practices what Michael Beckwith preaches at Agape where he also performs.
Chris has done some of the wildest sets this year at UnCab and we are excited about doing this special one night only show with him and his friends – opera singer and dancer Lauren Woods (related by love:), beatboxer Joshua Silverstein (I Didn’t Do It) and comedian Mike Glazer (Food Network, Second City). Their material is both light and deep. Absurd and yet practiced.
Chris started playing the violin at the age of 4, and has performed around the world as a musician. He has been featured on American Idol, The Voice, the Grammys, The Conan O’Brien Show, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, recorded for artists such as Justin Timberlake and Will.I.Am. He’s also an actor, having appeared in commercials and television, including The Fresh Beat Band on Nickelodeon.
It will be that kind of one of a kind night. TICKETS
