BOB CHAZ BAKER, former jazz trombone player turned keyboard rock musician, began his performing career voted top trombone soloist at the Wichita Jazz Festival in 1971. Nicknamed Chaz Baker, he joined the group Smoke Ring along with Tommy Shaw (Styx) in the spring of 1972. The group soon changed their name to MS Funk after recording in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. After a short tour with Jerry Lee Lewis, Chaz was influenced by Jerry Lee to change from playing horns to piano in one statement. “Horn players will come and go but they will always need piano players to Rock ‘n Roll.” Dedicating himself to keyboards, digital pianos and synthesizers, Chaz performed and recorded with a wide array of musicians including Tommy Shaw (MS Funk, Styx), Dan Fogelberg, Mark Andes (Firefall, Heart), Larry Stewart (Airborne) and Rosemary Butler (Jackson Brown, James Taylor). He has recorded at Paragon & Sound Studios (Chicago), Paramount Studios (LA), Widget Studios (Muscle Shoals), and Northstar, Applewood, Caribou, FTM Studios (Colorado). Bob will thrill you with his natural feel for a variety of genres influenced by his Filipino/Irish multi-racial background and his classical, jazz, rock and gospel experiences. Bob has recently played to sold out audiences at the Lone Tree Arts Center, Dazzle Jazz and recently performed with Liz Story and Lisa Downing at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle in Colorado.
