Default Chris Sprague w/Los Straitjackets

Recently in another post, a fellow forum member (J-Boogie) commented on sometimes surprisingly catching live local performances, and being knocked head-over-heels by the show.

That is exactly what happened to me regarding drummer Chris Sprague. Chris, drums for the surf rock band Los Straitjackets. Ever heard of them? I saw the band initially when they performed with artist Nick Lowe, as part of his Quality Holiday Revue several years ago. I was blown away by the bands talents, especially the drummer - any time you hear an outstanding rendition of "Sing, Sing, Sing," that will do it for me. I instantly became a fan, and have now seen them perform individually as well. Chris Sprague did a wonderful job working his small drum kit, and did not have to over-sell his talent either. Additional commentary on Los Straitjackets, as well as drummer Chris Sprague, kindly visit -

How funny, I worked with Chris a few times in 2011 with Karling Abbeygate, and he was playing guitar! :)

Yes, I have since seen videos where Chris was not only playing the guitar, but singing as well. Pretty good musician for sure!
