Welcome to the Sailor Song quarterdeck. This is your portal into the music of Christopher Mario Bianco. Chris is a freelance, solo, traveling troubadour specializing in performing live original and popular music of the Sea, the Beach, and the Sailing & Coastal lifestyle. Chris has recorded TEN original CD albums, which in addition to dozens of sea-folk pop favorites make for a nice mix of ocean-themed music. He performs live in fine-dining venues, festival events, and for very special private celebrations of all sorts all along the coastline - all around the globe. Chris plays acoustic & electric guitars and sings high & low, and he enjoys chatting casually with the audience introducing the songs with background stories and humor, and then weaving everything together in a larger narrative to help make the shows interactive & dynamic & fun for all. Chris is equipped with a full range of amplification equipment and is able to handle all sizes of events, from full-blown outdoor lawn concerts, intimate lounge environments, fine dining rooms, small house/deck parties, even battery-powered shows right out on the beach! He also frequently performs straight acoustic shows without ANY amplification in intimate fine-dining or at-home settings. Always professional, always clean & classy, always a good show.
Chris's home port is in Oceanside, Southern California. He performs in fine venues, special events, and for private events up and
down the US West Coast throughout California, Oregon, and Washington. Nationwide and limited international performances are possible
by special arrangement.
