Welcome to Café Chaos the UK Progressive Rock/Fusion band
Peter Terry (Drums) a pro-session drummer having played for Robert Palmer, Shirley Bassey, Elkie Brooks and supported Cream and David Bowie among many others drives the band forward.
Steve Blackall (Guitars) played with Jeff Beck, John Mayer and Sheryl Crow. Steve is strongly influenced by the multi-faceted style of Gary Moore
Nick Brown (Keys, Saxophone) played the circuit as a solo performer and in various bands, his key influences are fusion, rock, post ‘59 jazz and jazz fusion
Pete Krueger (Bass) – a well-known and loved bassist having played in Outalyrix, Fair Exchange, Antz Avenue, Webbsight, Goin Loud and Vincent White Band not to mention his own band Krueger.
Café Chaos’s style has been richly described as a “ Floyd-esque rock band with a heavy dash of Gary Moore, Focus, Colosseum, Camel, early Genesis and Led Zeppelin brought up to date with modern rhythms and sounds ”.
Nick and Steve write and play the band’s original melodies and chord progressions with Peter Terry providing the strong, innovative and driving beats and Pete Krueger delivering the solid bass lines.
"From the first notes we will notice that this group has a real professional sense at all levels, with remarkable but accessible compositional power, good ideas, but also great vocal potential. The Holy Grail is not yet back, but some pieces here are approaching it. Let yourself be carried away by these beautiful melodic phrases, by this breathtaking guitar, and these songs that sound like anthems. Good listening!"
Marek Deveaux - Profilprog
Café Chaos formed when a group of musicians met by chance at a Jam session in Henley on Thames UK.
They rapidly realised that they all shared similar strong influences from Progressive Rock and Jazz-fusion music which showed in their complementary playing styles.
They write all their own material
(with one or two covers).
Grasping that instrumental biased rock/fusion music had largely disappeared from the scene and was ripe for a revival - in the summer of 2016 they came together for their first session.
Everyone needs to chill, have positivity, always think and act "green" - as there is no planet B, entertain, enjoy Café Chaos
embrace retro and merge with the new, jump as high as you can, defy gravity.... and above all have fun
