C-Money & The Player's Inc.:
Christofer “C-Money” Welter was born to be a musician. He is best known for his work playing trumpetand keyboards in John Brown’s Body and Slightly Stoopid, two of the top reggae bands touring today. While in John Brown’s Body, C-Money recorded four full-length albums with the East Coast’s premiere reggae band and toured with them for 8 years. In 2006, he moved west joining Slightly Stoopid andadding a dimension and element to the band. In 2010 C-Money release his second solo album, Family Business, garnering praise from Performer Magazine who said, “The record offers the listener a serene feeling, along with empowering words from the various vocalists. Every track on the record is different - some have lyrics while others don't. The record takes the listener through various moods, some tracks feel spacey with an electronic vibe, while others are smoother, with a reggae twist.”
Fitting a robust tour schedule in between life on the road with Slightly Stoopid, C-Money and the Players Inc have begun to make a name for themselves after touring consistently up and down the west coast for the past three years. The band’s reggae infused mix of funk/jam/jazz/hip-hop continues to delight crowds, as their ever-growing fan base is exposed to C-Money and the Players Inc’s unique concert experience.
Somewhere along the borders where melodies, grooves, harmonies and textures meet, you can find Agent 22. Tom Griesgraber (aka: Thos) and Ryan Moran (aka: Rymo) share a fascination for the intangible; that music that defines a mood and stirs the imagination. Difficult to classify yet easily identified, the music of Agent 22 is based in rock, but borrows amply from jazz, funk, world andclassical. While best known for Chapman Stick and drums respectively, both Tom and Ryan make use of multiple instruments. Ryan's instrumental pallette extends through Latin American, African andAsian percussion as well as vibes, synths and the Australlian didjeridoo. Tom Griesgraber graduated from Berklee College of Music as a guitar major, but his musical journey began on piano and violinand continues through bass, synths and vocals.
Individually the two have garnered much attention throughout the music industry. Rymo has spent years with groups like Slightly Stoopid and the B-Side Players, touring the world. Thos has toured andrecorded with some of the industry's most respected instrumentalists like Bert Lams of the California Guitar Trio and Peter Gabriel/Paul McCartney alumnus Jerry Marotta. Both have solo albums that the other has contributed to and together they have provided the backbone of recordings for a number of other artists. Through it all though, Agent 22 remains a focal point for their shared exploration of that most intangible art form; music.
