By: Ed Oates - CHOC’D
Oates is known for participating at Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. He also released an EP, Walkin' Back, in 2011, and single, LA Trip in 2014, which is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Oates is also known for his smooth rhythms. He uses the volume and tone controls on his guitar to achieve a "wah-wah" effect with the use of tone control, as he creates various distorted sounds.
In 2018, he co-founded Rock Your Business LLC with Michelle Fox. They launched corporate team building, and leadership training events powered by Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. His events rostered over 400 rock stars. Oates fans are looking forward to hearing him and the band perform.
