It has all come together quickly for the Christopher Brothers. They learned to play their first song together, Santana’s “Black Magic Woman,” in 15 minutes.
Cameron, Charles and Ethan Christopher
first started playing music together in November of 2008 at the suggestion of their mom, Lydia Christopher. They each took to their own instrument — Charles, the guitar; Cameron, the drums; and Ethan, the bass guitar.
“I couldn’t believe it, they just started grooving together,” said Lydia Christopher, who as a flutist whose own parents are opera singers and music writers has imparted a musical background to her kids.
Three months after learning their first song, The Christopher Brothers had their first gig.
“It actually sounded OK,” Charles said. “It didn’t sound like a horrible train wreck.”
From there, The Christopher Brothers have only worked on getting better, putting plenty of time into developing their craft.
“I don’t know when we started sounding good,” said Cameron, a 15-year old incoming junior to LCHS, drummer and backup singer for the band. “We just keep going forward and getting better and better.”
