Chris Grainger


President of Sales

Originally from London in England, Chris has called Los Angeles his home for many years now. A drummer since the age of two, with his first full drum kit arriving at the age of four, Chris’s life has been drums and drumming.

In his teens, Chris joined the Blues Club band, taking over the drum seat from The Kinks’ Mick Avery and Chris Slade from AC/DC/Asia/Manfred Mann’s Earthband to play alongside Alan Rogan (The Who), Peter Hope-Evans (Pete Townsend, Medicine Head), Gary Grainger (Rod Stewart, Roger Daltrey), Guy Fletcher (Dire Straits), Robbie McIntosh (Paul McCartney).

In 2007 he was invited to perform Bad Company and Free greatest hits with Mick Ralphs (Mott The Hoople, Bad Company), Robert Hart (Manfred Mann‘s Earthband, Foreigner, Bad Company), Dave “Bucket” Colwell (Humble Pie, Bad Company) and Jaz Lochrie (Go West, Paul Rodgers, Bad Company).

Chris was chosen by Mark Brzezicki (Big Country, The Cult, Pete Townsend) to fill his place in Bruce Foxton‘s touring version of The Jam in 2011, a position he kept until 2013.

Alongside his career as a studio and live drummer, Chris is now in his 22nd year of retail sales, with a decade at UK’s busiest Audio Visual retailer, Richer Sounds. When it comes to the world’s finest products, with the greatest service, Chris is determined to deliver!
