Blackout was started in the suburbs of Los Angeles, CA in the Spring of 2005. It was all set in motion a year before, when Chris saw the movie "School of Rock". This movie inspired him to pick up the guitar and form a band. At their second show there was a power outage and the name "Blackout" was born. Since then many things have happened in the band; Chris decided to broaden his horizons and continue playing all of his music with talended musicians and friends Dakota Floeter and George Brooks. The Band now rocks harder than ever, ready to embrace the future of Rock and Roll.
