JOCELYN AND CHRIS ARNDT
May 14, 2016 at 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Combine a brother-sister writing team backed by a killer band Devastatingly powerful vocals driven by full-throttle, retro-rock guitar: Meet sibling rockers Jocelyn and Chris Arndt. CMJ Official Showcase Artist of 2015, and named #12 on Planet Stereo’s list of “100 Artists You Must Hear in 2015,” Jocelyn, 21, and Chris, 19, along with their band have logged more than 100 performances this year including stops at The Sundance Film Festival, Mountain Jam Music Festival, and television appearances in New York, Tennessee, Virginia, and California.
Growing up in rural Central New York (Fort Plain to be exact) Jocelyn and Chris’s home community offered the siblings a limited pallet of things to do around town. The bowling alley was full of old people, the convenience store in town did have the best breakfast pizza on the planet, but if you didn’t get there early it was sadly all gone and replaced by hot dogs even though it was way to early for lunch. So when their parents, who are both educators decided to let the kids try musical instruments, the duo prepared to do battle. Both Jocelyn and Chris absolutely wanted to play piano. Ultimately however, since Jocelyn was a year older than her brother, she got first choice… and piano it was! Poor Chris was left with guitar… loud, hard to figure out guitar.
Today Jocelyn and Chris Arndt write, record, and perform coast to coast. Jocelyn’s supercharged voice has become a huge draw to audiences while at 19, Chris’s melodic and soulful approach to guitar suggests maturity and tastefulness that alludes many players throughout a lifetime. Together, they are two of the most compelling rock performers anywhere. Don’t miss an opportunity to see them play… you will never forget the experience.
