“Pher” aka Chris Gautreau
Pher ‘s rhythm is contagious. You can’t help yourself from moving your body to his beat. He’s been playing the drums for over 18 years and has performed numerous high-profile events together with Vancouver’s best DJ’s and musicians.
His influences: Fat Freddy’s Drop, The Roots, Thievery Corporation, Katchafire & Dub Pistols.
Pher finds joy in accompanying DJ’s: “There’s something really inspiring about playing live percussion with DJ’s, it gives me the challenge of coming up with the perfect groove to add to the mix. I feel like I’m in the studio and only have time for one take. Years of playing with DJ’s has given me the sense of where the music is going, when to play less and when to play more.”
Chris performs percussion (djembe, congas & full drum kits) to genres like: Hiphop, Funk, Reggae, House, Jazz, Lounge, Electro & Top 40
