CHRIS HIATT'S TRIBUTE TO STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN came about one night at a party. Someone threw a black hat on Hiatt's head and commented that he looked like Stevie Ray. It got a laugh from the crowd, but the thought lurked in Hiatt's brain...a tribute to a guitarist he already highly respected. After a couple of test shows for nearly rabid Stevie Ray fans, Chris Hiatt took the tribute act on the road. 26years, five countries,and countless tours, the act is stronger than ever. Hiatt takes his show all over the U.S. & Europe, having completed an 26th sold-out tour of Scandinavia in October 2017.
On bass guitar, fellow Montanan DARWIN SCOTT keeps it solid in the low registers. Holding down the drum spot, Hiatt's co-worker of 20 years, Washington-born CHRIS 'CRASH' KLETTKE. The keyboard seat is being held by STEVE JOHNSON. Keys are second nature to Steve, (who also plays guitar & drums) keeping the piano & organ sounds pumping. Chris Hiatt intends on keeping the spirit of Stevie Ray alive until, according to the guitarist, "It stops being fun."
