The Chad Todd Band
Oklahoma born and raised, Chad Evan Todd is an accomplished performer with an impressive music pedigree. The son of Oklahoma legend, Jerry Cooper, Chad has been singing and performing most of his life. Chad began his professional career after college, in the rock/christian band Soundbaux and you can hear him on their album, The Early Years, recorded in 2003.
However, Chad's roots are in country music, and he was the founding member of The Chad Todd Band in 2005. Chad recorded his first country album, The Home Brew Album, and now working on his upcoming newest release.
Drummer, Ben Matthews is the newest member of the CTB. Ben is a true percussion master, a rock style drummer with a country soul. He is the definition of the rhythm for Chad Todd Band's label as a rockin' high energy dance band!
Ben was born in Washington State, and received his first drum set at the age of 15 even though his mom said he has always been a drummer from the very start!
Some of his influences were John Bonham, Nikko McBrain, Bill Ward, and Randy Castillo.
Ben has displayed his talent in several different bands such as J.C. Hopkins Band and Greater Than Zero. The Chad Todd Band is so grateful to have him aboard now!
Euclid (Eukie) Hart Jr. is an award winning bassist, and a high energy performer.
Eukie is equal parts to Tony Franklin and David Lee Roth. He brings a level of bass playing unheard of in country music! He also sings, and is a major component of The Chad Todd Band experience.
Eukie's vibrant personality and stage antics will get you on your feet. Whether he's playing bass, or singing classics like "Stagger Lee" or "Mustang Sally," his level of energy will surprise you!
Eukie has played with numerous musicians during his long, varied career, and is almost a show unto himself!
