CHRIS DERNJAC

is a drummer, bass player & percussionist from Vechta, in Oldenburg Münsterland.

Born in Lohne in 1986 Chris discovered his love for music early on because his father was a drummer. Like him, Chris was particularly fond of the “groove”. So even at four years old, Chris dedicated himself to the drums and various percussion instruments, and also learned how to play the double bass from the age of 13 – entirely self-taught. He formed his first band in 1999 and spent every spare minute in the practice room from that point on. That’s how the young man laid the groundwork for numerous music projects and a subsequent career as a professional drummer and bass player, which he began in 2008 with his first assignment for a band that was in the Top 40 at the time. Since then, this thoroughbred musician has been on stage with different German and international bands and artists – and impresses with three things above all: musical interplay, rhythmic precision and a dynamic, powerful sound.

Until now Chris has worked and/or played with:
