Spotlight: Chris Knopp


Year started performing: I have been playing in Toledo since 2004.

Sounds a little like: I'm not really sure who I sound like anymore. It was James Taylor and then Dave Matthews, but anymore, I'm not sure.

Influences: If I'm being honest (and cliche), my biggest influences truly are my friends and family. What I want to say is: Katie Holmes, Jerry Anderson, Luke Harmon, and Jamie Farr.

Upcoming shows: I really excited about "Rock Show '12." It's an annual charity event my friends have been doing for more than a decade. This year it's on Saturday at the Blarney Bullpen and will benefit the Toledo School for the Arts.

Web site: My demo is at
