I saw Chris Hiatt playing in New Smyrna tonight. In the US he tends to stick around the Florida east coast (Daytona, Flagler, New Smyrna, etc.). Overseas he frequents Scandinavia, especially Sweden, having done 20+ tours. He seems to mostly be known as a Stevie Ray Vaughn cover act, having done SRV shows for many years in many places. But he also brings a repertoire of rock, blues, and jazz favorites, and even takes requests. His original material is pretty damn good, five original albums worth. If you can’t find them online, you can contact him directly through his website to buy them.
If you live anywhere in mid-Florida, Chris Hiatt is worth checking out.
Note: I think Chris Hiatt could use some better management. I’m sure he does alright with his regular gigs and overseas tours, but I’m not sure he’s getting the attention he deserves. The guy is obviously very talented, and could easily be playing with some bigger acts or bigger venues. And Chris, if you’re listening, you need a more modern Web2.0 website; it’s killing me!
