The Cassaday Concoction is a blues-funk-rock fusion band founded in the summer of 2018 by
Virginia based singer-songwriter Chris Cassaday. The band, consisting of Chris's close friends
Brian Gerrard on lead guitar, Dom Ryan on bass, and Adam Bush on drums, have proven very
quickly that they are must see performers. Since starting in 2018, the Concoction has rocked
the stage at some of the most prestigious venues the DC, Virginia, and Maryland areas have to
offer, while bringing a swarm of enthusiastic fans, both new and old, with them. Each member's
eclectic mix of musical backgrounds gives the band's sound a unique and powerful edge, luring
the audience in with catchy harmonies, hard-punching rock and roll, soothing soul music, and
classic crowd-favorite cover songs. Their shows truly are a "Concoction" of musical euphoria.
After joining Chris in the studio on a number of his solo tracks, the Concoction released their
debut album “I Need To Be” on September 9 th , 2022, with more music to come in 2023. Coming
