Its time to Rock with CJ Ryder and the Past Masters
This award-winning act CJ RYDER and the Past Masters have won a huge following in the Mid-West for their frenetic high energy shows. The band gets the place jumpin' right from the minute the show starts.
The leader of the Band is CJ RYDER, an enigma who has complete command of the crowd and is fearless when it comes to interaction with the audience. He is happier wading through the dancers and working the entire room than being in the spotlight on stage. He is known for his side-splitting humor and for keeping the entire crowd guessing what he will do next. CJ works the entire room during a show.
He loves the fans and connecting with the audience in a highly interactive way. He loves to sing to the ladies and whip the dance floor into a frenzy. The motto of the band is 100% dance music all the time. They live up to that motto every show.
If you love high energy rock and roll from the 50s and 60s and 70s, this is your show.
