Chris Chan most often performs as a 7-Piece band featuring his Drummer, Bassist, Keyboardist, Guitarist, and Two Female Vocalists. For top of the line productions, Chris brings his 10-piece orchestra, which adds a three-piece horn section and an additional background vocalist. Copa Dancers in glitzy Vegas & Latin style costumes are also available. For corporate “Theme Parties” and “Legends-Style” show productions, featuring a cast of top of the line celebrity tribute artists, shorter performances can be delivered with fully orchestrated tracks.
