Patch Pal of the Month Chris Brown

Chris Brown, or Chris “MF’en” Brown, as he is affectionately known, is our Patch Pal of the Month for March. Chris is a native of the Tampa Bay area and has been around our music scene for many years. He is a sound/stage technician and regularly works at many of the biggest venues in the area including Jannus Live, Vinoy Park, Amalie Arena and the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center; setting up and breaking down sound systems, lighting and stages.

Chris also plays bass in a couple of local bands, mainly Troy Youngblood & the SoulFish, and also with High Cotton -Tampa Bay and Tres Gringos. He was also a key member of Skull and Bone Band, which played in our scene for many years. He is a pretty kick ass guitar player as well.

At The Blueberry Patch, he is always helping lend a hand in anything stage related, including set-up and breakdown. He is a frequently core member and MC of the Blueberry Patch Ramblers for our monthly Jam nights on the 11th of each month, as well as helping on many open mics and other events as well.

Be sure to congratulate Chris the next time you see him and thank him for all he does to help the Patch provide awesome music for our local area!
