Below is some CJ Raggatt Band promo.

CJ Raggatt is an exciting Blues and Roots performer from Sydney Australia.

The CJ Raggatt Band thrill audiences with their stomping original Rhythm and Blues music but can also mesmerize with beautiful acoustic and steel guitar ballads with three part vocal harmonies. They embrace Country, Gospel, Blues and Reggae music.

The Band includes Antero Ceschin on Drums, (ex Mighty Reapers) and

John Tweed on Keys and Keyboard Bass, (ex Renee Geyer)

CJ plays a double-neck guitar of his own design, incorporating an open-tuned slide guitar and a conventional six-string electric guitar.

Harmonica player Kelvin Carlson and CJ won the solo/duo section of the Sydney Blues Society blues competition and represented Sydney at the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee.

CJ is one of Australia’s finest slide guitarists, his playing has been compared to that of Derek Trucks, Bob Brozman and John Butler. He was also a founding member of top Australian band “Matt Finish”.

Whether singing his original material or covering Rhythm and Blues classics CJ and his band amaze crowds with their passion, joy and musical ability.

Teaching Info

 I like to teach students using songs the student loves, and show the techniques, chords, scales, and theory involved within those songs. I focus on  the practical skills to get the student playing from the start, and introduce  theory and also music reading as the student is ready and depending on their needs.

I play many styles of Electric and Acoustic guitar including slide guitar, finger picking, open tunings, bass guitar, jazz, blues, reggae, pop, rock, and love it all.
