Keyboard specialist Chris Codish has steadily made himself a vital part of the Detroit musical community. A perennial winner at the Detroit Music Awards over the past fourteen years, he has received multiple honors for his vocal and songwriting skills as well as his keyboard mastery. He formed the multi award winning funk/jazz/jam band The Brothers Groove, produced the last two albums for the late, great Detroit bluesman Johnnie Bassett on Sly Dog Records (Mack Ave. Records), and toured globally with Hiram Bullock, Harvey Mason, Alexander Zonjic, Larry McCray and Lucky Peterson. He’s performed and recorded with Roy Ayers, Ronnie Laws, Jim “Moose” Brown, Sponge, The Motor City Horns, The Dead String Brothers, Kenny Tudrick, Kem, Dave McMurray, Thornetta Davis, Kenny G, Bob James, Jeff Lorber, and countless others. When not on tour, Chris performs anywhere from solo to big band groups on piano, organ and keyboard throughout the Metro Detroit area at notable festivals and clubs including the Detroit Jazz Festival, Arts Beats and Eats, Cliff Bell’s, The Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe, The London Chop House, as well as at God Land Unity Church in Detroit every Sunday morning.
