CHRIS BOOROFF has found himself playing in all sorts of different bands & ensembles over the past six years. After 4 years studying music in Southampton, he went on to play in various musical outfits and has toured the UK, Ireland and parts of Europe. Chris played lead trumpet in Southampton based touring Ska-punk band “Mash Attack,” and South coast (UK) touring pop-punk band “Kids Can’t Fly.” He has also played lead guitar in Southampton’s functions & corporate events band “Headrush,” and the touring folk trio “Wax Jacket,” fronted by James Chilton.
In June 2013, Chris travelled to Australia, and continued his career on the opposite end of the world. Chris established a network of musicians, venues and promoters, as he conquered the city by playing in almost every music venue in Melbourne both as a solo artist and in various bands. After 2 months of busking & performing, he formed a trio named “Isoh” and continued to perform constantly within this outfit. By the end of his time in Melbourne, he was hosting his own acoustic jam night – “The Acoustic Library” at The Ontop Bar in Ormond; and was employed to play guitar for shows in the Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Perth Fringe Festival, New Zealand Arts Festival and Slide Cabaret Festival (Sydney). Chris is now based in the Whitsundays continuing his solo career and playing Trumpet and guitar for the Reggae outfit “Sun Salute.” His solo shows are unlike any other soloist – an energetic mix of acoustic guitar, trumpet, stompbox and live looping!
