Chris Bandi
August 26th, 2016
Raised on country and rock n roll, Chris’ love for music began at a young age. Whether it was in his dad’s car or in his family’s living room, Chris would sing everything from Elvis and Garth Brooks to Bruce Springsteen and Cat Stevens.

In high school Chris joined a band in St. Louis, Missouri. They became rather famous around the area winning several Battle of the Bands and opening for national touring acts. After high school Chris dropped the music to focus on college. Around a year ago, Chris picked up his guitar after a three-year hiatus and started singing again – this time country and southern rock. A few short months after he started playing again, he had the opportunity to audition for American Idol! Validating that he can sing, he made it through the auditions and to Hollywood week! Now Chris wants to keep things going with his music.

Though country is what he sings today, he appreciates all genres of music.

Recently, Chris was introduced to a great producer out of Nashville. The two started collaborating on a demo CD of several of his original songs and expect it to be complete sometime this summer.

Lick Creek formed in 2013 and started playing shows November of that year. Since that time we have grown by leaps and bounds on the stage and off. We love to play country with a little edge that makes you wanna get up and dance. We have a philosophy that its not just how well you play a song but what kind of energy you put into a performance. Come see why Lick Creek is quickly growing to be the most talked about band around.
