First Ever Teen Blues Trio, Chase Walker Band, To Perform At Vans Warped Tour

First Ever Teen Blues Trio, Chase Walker Band, To Perform At Vans Warped Tour

Los Angeles, CA (Top40 Charts / Chase Walker Band) Teen trio Chase Walker Band are too young to drive their tour bus, but they play the Blues like old souls. Out of hundreds of bands that submitted to the L.A. County Fair's Battle of the Bands, the group was chosen as one of eight finalists and earned a spot to perform at this year's Vans Warped Tour in Pomona, California on June 20.

The Chase Walker Band preserves the Blues timeless style while propelling it forward. Lead guitarist/vocalist Chase Walker, age 14, channels the spirit of his influences Warren Haynes, Joe Bonamassa and Stevie Ray Vaughan pouring out haunting guitar licks and soulful vocals well beyond his years. Not bad for a young man who first picked up a guitar just three short years ago.

Backing Walker are drummer Matt Fyke and bassist Randon Davitt, ages 14 and 15. Fyke ushers a white-hot rhythm section akin to John Bonham and Mitch Mitchell, while Davitt, on bass, brings a funky upbeat energy to the band. One thing all three have in common is a commanding stage performance that belies their youth. "You know the Blues is alive and well," Walker said about the upcoming gig, "when you think about thousands of kids in this huge festival enjoying the Blues, some for the first time, that's pretty cool."

The gifted teens are sought out in the live music realm, performing at festivals all over the country. Some of Chase's most memorable highlights are opening for his music heroes BB King and Coco Montoya, performing at the 2013 International Blues Challenge (IBC) and iconic venues like the House of Blues, B.B King's in Memphis and Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago. Indeed, the band's hard work has paid off, as they are the first teen Blues band to play on the Vans Warped Tour since the festival's inception nineteen years ago.

Chase Walker recently joined the Heil Sound family of endorsed artists which includes Carrie Underwood, Slash, ZZ Top, Alice in Chains, 38 Special, Paul Rodgers, Peter Frampton, and Stone Temple Pilots.

The Chase Walker Band performs in front of 15,000+ Vans Warped Tour attendees on June 20, 2013 in Pomona, California. For more information, visit
