In the summer of 2018, Chris co-founded a funk-blues-rock fusion three-piece band called The Cassaday Concoction. The band, consisting of Chris's close friends Brian Gerrard on lead guitar, Dom Ryan on bass, and Adam Bush on drums, has proven very quickly that they are must see performers. Since their start, the Concoction has rocked the stage at some of the the largest and most prestigious venues the DC, Virginia, and Maryland areas have to offer, while bringing a swarm of enthusiastic fans, both new and old, with them as they traverse their way up and down the east coast of the US.
Each member's eclectic mix of musical backgrounds gives the band's sound a unique and powerful edge, luring the audience in with catchy harmonies, hard-punching rock and roll, soothing soul music, and reggae one-drops. Their shows truly are a "Concoction" of musical euphoria, with the band taking you on a journey of whatever genre or vibe is pumping through their veins. The Concoction serves as an outlet for Chris's more blues-influenced hard rock music that doesn't fit under the umbrella of his mellow, mostly acoustic-based solo work.
The band released the 3-song-EP Hear, Listen on March, 15th, 2019, followed by Hollywood EP on October 23, 2020. On October 1st, 2021 the band released a new single I Give Up which has hit 44,000 streams on Spotify. The band followed it up with the single Judgement on January 13th 2022, and "Out The Door" on June 3rd, 2022. On September 9th, 2022, the Concoction released their first full length album "I Need To Be". Following the release of their most recent single "Paint A Picture" on July 21st, 2023, the band is hard at work and is expected to release a few new singles and an EP in early 2024.
