WEST VAIL, Colorado – Southern by birth, basic and fundamental music, vocabulary and morals, Christofer “C-Money” Welter was made to be a musician. He is best known for his work playing trumpet and keyboards in John Brown’s Body and Slightly Stoopid, two of the top reggae bands touring today. He brings his band C-Money and the Players Inc. to the Sandbar in West Vail for a free show at 10 p.m. Sunday.

While in John Brown’s Body, C-Money recorded four full-length albums with the East Coast reggae band and toured with them for eight years. In 2006, he joined Slightly Stoopid. Slightly Stoopid has grown to become one of the most successful independent artists of the decade, with album sales topping the 700,000 mark and taking the stage at some of the most prestigious festival venues around the world like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and playing sold out shows across the U.S., Australia, Japan, Guam, Amsterdam, Portugal, Denmark, the UK, Germany, Holland, and The Dominican Republic.

C-Money’s album, “Family Business” off Stoopid Records, was released in April and showcased a diverse collection of songs from a wide range of artists including: G. Love, Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid, Elliot Martin of John Brown’s Body, Angelo Moore of Fishbone, Dre Gipson of Fishbone and Craig Akira of Pressure Cooker. “Family Business” combines reggae, hip-hop, jazz, funk, blues and soul. The first single off the record, “Arroz Con Pollo” features G Love.

This Fall, C-Money and the Players Inc. take the road to open up 25 dates for national touring act and Stoopid Records artist, The Expendables.
