Coast-hopping, Jazz-drumming, Chris Brown is back in town!


Brown has gained a stellar reputation as one of the bright new talents on the scene, working with a who's who of Jazz artist.


This quartet is so amazing on so many different levels...go see 'em whilst they still exist in PDX. I really think this one could go a long way in the Jazz world!

-Bob Stark. Portland, OR.

Producer/Sound Engineer Kung Fu Bakery Studio.


He is a uniquely talented performer and educator, and a man in whom I trust and for whom I hold great admiration.

-Conrad Herwig. New York, NY.

Director of Jazz Studies, Rutgers University, NJ, and 3x Grammy Nominated artist.


I used him almost exclusively in my band when he used to reside in the NYC area, as he always brought so much knowledge and artistry to the music. And combined with his multi-instrumentalist abilities, Chris Brown is a unique talent that's not often found.

-Mark Gross. New York, NY.

80's Rewind & Unwind w/The Christopher Brown Quartet @ Christo's Pizzeria

  • Christo's Pizzeria 1108 Broadway Street Salem, OR, 97301 United States (map)

As one of the most unique and well known Jazz groups in the greater Portland area, The Christopher Brown Quartet brings one of the most daring and refreshingly well-polished sounds to not only their homage to popular music from the 1980's, but to Jazz music in the NW region as a whole. And for the past three years this group has enjoyed several steady residencies at various venues around the Portland area on a weekly basis. So with that level of frequency, it's no wonder why they've garnered as much notoriety as they have for the level of excellence that they display every week. And after a year, this group will be returning to Salem to perform at Christo's Pizzeria once again.
