Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Ventriloquist, Parent...
Chris Campbell is a singer, songwriter, musician, and ventriloquist. Chris performs for kids at libraries, elementary schools, preschools, birthday parties, churches, and various community venues. 2012 marked Chris's first year performing shows for kids, promoting “All Together Now,” his song collection for children. Chris's show delivers education, entertainment, and pure fun for the whole family.
Chris's music and singing are completely live and original, with a sound that is an acoustic blend of folk and pop music. The program is highly interactive; beyond the energetic music, the use of props, comedy, and motion facilitate engagement in the topic at hand. As an avid ventriloquist, Chris also introduces fun and comical characters into the show, contributing to the program's variety format. The show, which is tailored to kids ages 3-9, is designed to create a unique experience that both parent and child will remember and long to repeat.
As the second generation member and manager of the Virginia-based music group, The Coachmen, Chris has been an established regional artist for many years. For those who know Chris, the move toward children's entertainment is no surprise. He is known to have his children participate on stage, and to write and record music that stems from his day-to-day experiences as a young father.
Chris is passionate about using his talent to promote appreciation of live music and family values. Originally from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Chris resides in Glen Allen, Virginia (Richmond suburb) with his wife Tonya, daughter Riley (8), son Deacon (5) and “peke-a-poo” dog Casey (12).
