Brian Chabza - Violin / Acoustic Guitar / Background Vocals

I was in my senior year of high school when I first rehearsed with Ants Marching in the spring of 1998. Brian Hall and Pat worked with me at a local music store, and Hall asked me if I was down. We worked on the tunes, and the band covered the material exceptionally well. We found Craig Knapp to complete the band on lead vocals, and 3 or 4 months later we played our first show.

The popularity of the band grew faster than any of us had expected. We had gone from playing small bars like Da Funky Phish in January of 1999 to opening for the Wailers at Surfstock 2001 in Ortley Beach, NJ. We recently added two new members to our band. This has brought a new excitement and added positive chemistry to the project.

I have been studying music and violin since the age of 9 under the tutelage of Long Island’s top bluegrass violinist Ron Feinberg. Feinberg is currently playing with Buddy Mirriam and Backroads. I also began studying guitar at the age of 11 with a number of teachers including Joe Marselle and Bill Tsantes. Additionally, I have studied jazz improvisation with Rich Rabatin and Alan Grubner.
