Formed in July of 2002 in Austin, Crazy Chester brings its original style of rock and roll to the forefront, mixing a blend of blues, funk, bluegrass, southern rock, and an insatiable appetite for the jam. With their debut and only release to date, "To Here From There," the band''s eclectic mix is showcased in their ability to cover a lot of ground with their songwriting, which is shared by multiple members of the band.
Comprised of native Texans Shawn Nelson (vocals, guitar, trombone, mandolin); Mooke Mayrath (drums, percussion); Jeff Luna (bass, vocals); native North Carolinian Kent Clayton (guitar, vocals, percussion) and native Kansan Aaron Franz (vocals, guitar) Crazy Chester brings soaring energy to this recording and is the only piece of tangible evidence that the band even existed.
In their two year run, the Chester played numerous gigs in the Austin area and hit the road to play in Dallas, Fort Worth, Kansas City, Lawrence, Wichita and many places in between. The band however parted way to pursue other projects in early 2004, but did break on a memorable high note with their last show at the legendary Antone''s in Austin.
Shawn Nelson, Aaron Franz and Jeff Luna all have their own projects ongoing in Austin and still play together from time to time. There has been some talk about another record and possibly a tour, but Crazy Chester can''t come out of the fog without Kent Clayton who is wandering around California in search of the fountain of youth.
