CVC has teamed up with CCI Music to support and advance the growing Long Island music scene. CCI Music provides old fashioned representation for singer-songwriters, bands and artists with honest management by music and art lovers, not bean counters. Besides CVC, CCI Music is currently working with such artists as Jay Scott, The Sun Gets Down, Jessie Haynes, Rorie Kelly & many more; as well as venues all over Long Island and beyond, that support local original music.

Check out CVC's new live lineup, "The Vagabonds", which features the tasteful percussive grooves of Brady Wilkins (Karma Sutra), the melodic bass lines of Jay Tebaldi (Grand Case Scenario, Corduroy Sky) & the sweet backing vocals of Maritza Rodriguez (Other Natural Flavors). Tell us what you think of our sound at one of our upcoming shows!

LIVE CD now available! On October 11th 2007, Chris performed a set of his original music with percussionist Brady Wilkins at the Patchogue Theatre. His show was recorded by Bill Herman from Paradiddle Records and was part of the "Live in the Lobby" concert series put together by Christopher Capobianco of the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts . The series promotes local singer-songwriters, is run by hard working volunteers, and is supported by a number of sponsors. Buy it here!
