For over a decade, Caleb Chapman has been turning heads with his professional bands made up of unlikely members - young musicians aged 13-18! From funk to fusion and soul to swing, Caleb's bands have played some of the most prestigious venues in the world, including recent performances in Sweden, France, Switerland, The Netherlands, Italy, and Mexico. Their national precence is equally as impressive with performances in most every major city in the US, including New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Chicago, and San Francisco. Almost as shocking as the age of these amazing musicians is the fact that they don't come from one of the nation's music meccas, but rather Salt Lake City, Utah.
Not only have these bands caught the attention of audiences on the world stage, but some of the greatest musicians on the scene today. They have performed with over two-hundred celebrity guest artists, including dozens of GRAMMY-winners from every major genre. They have worked with members of many of the most recognized bands on the planet - the Dave Matthews Band, Maroon 5, AC/DC, Tower of Power, the Neon Trees, Journey, and Genesis, to name just a few. Jazz icons like David Sanborn, Joe Lovano, Nicholas Payton, Esperanza Spalding, Dave Weckl, Christian McBride, Stefon Harris, Bob Mintzer, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Randy Brecker, Lenny Pickett, Victor Wooten, and Peter Erskine also fill the list.
If you have heard any of Caleb's bands play, you know why such incredible artists are willing to share the stage with them. If you haven't heard these bands, it's time to see for yourself what all the buzz is about!
