Chris Jago was born & raised in Liverpool, England in the year Nineteen Hundred and Seventy Five. Loves Ringo, Liverpool FC & John Smiths… (google it)
Jago now lives in Los Angeles, via London, New York & Las Vegas.
Jago has been in various things, from dangerous bar bands in Liverpool to tours around the world with International artists to Broadway & West End shows. Some highlights and slightly dimmer lights below:
Boy George, Barclay James Harvest, Jekyll & Hyde the Concert, The Dirty Diamond, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, China Crisis, The Great American Trailer Park, The Atlanta Symphony, Sizer Barker, Taboo The Musical ( UK & US ), Ugly Betty show, The Gregg Wright Band, The Calling, Kings Of Infinite Space, Lance Horne & the One Nite Stands, Kevin Cahoon, The Seoul Philharmonic, Michael Cerveris, The Clique Girlz, David Nelhs, The Tonight Show w/Jay Leno,
Most recently the MONSTER hit Broadway show 'Wicked.' Jago preformed almost 600 shows (really closer to 700 if you include rehearsals, Ouch!) in 2 years while Wicked enjoyed its record breaking run at the Pantages Theatre, Hollywood CA.
Jago of course plays Aquarian Heads, Zildjian Cymbals, Pearl Drums and 3Drumsticks by DW.
Jago has built himself a studio (Two Sugars, Inc) to make massive amounts of noise in and hopefully track cool & groovy drums. Check out my Myspace for more info, sound clips and video!
Jago loves Chocolate, his wife and his two boys Jace & Cooper. Oh, but not as much as his Clear Focus X heads...Obviously!
Jago is ALWAYS trying to play less...
