Whether it’s a song featuring Jimmy Page, Steve Howe, John McLaughlin, Stevie Ray, or Jimi Hendrix Chris can shred it, but Chris can also play jazz, bluegrass, classical, and funk with conviction. Chris is the architect of dr Swift. He uses a variety of guitars, amps, pedals, and techniques to add all the right colors to every song dr Swift plays.

 

Dave McKay

Bass, Vocals

Dave is a solid bass player, who went to Berklee College of Music in the ‘80’s and throws in Jaco Pastorious licks in the most unlikely places. Dave isn’t one of those bass players who just stands there, he’s always dancing to the music. His energy helps power the band. On stage, his face radiates the joy he feels when he is playing music with dr Swift.

 

Paul Raab

Drums, Vocals

Holly has a wonderful rich tone to her voice and a broad range. She soars over Eric on songs like Gimme Shelter, shows some Memphis soul singing Dusty’s Son of a Preacher Man, and rocks the house with Rock & Roll. While Holly belts out the classics she also can deliver Alanis’ angst on You Oughta Know, and get funky with Lady GaGa.
