Just Chords

Just Chords
Davenport, IA

Just Chords is an acoustic cover band that plays songs that all crowds love to jam along too. Originally comprising of Ryan Goettsch on guitar and vocal, David Smith on guitar and vocal and. Charity Smith on vocal. The trio brought many talents to the stage. In more recent years concerts featuring the original trio are reserved for more "Main Event" show bills. There is no doubt that the original "Just Chords" cast will be playing the Quad City, Chicago and Nashville scenes on the regular.

When playing out these days in the QC it's not uncommon to see a guest artist pulled up to play or sing on a couple or have Ryan and Craig switch up instruments for few songs.
Ryan plays a versatile style of guitar and brings a unique vocal tone to songs of all eras. Combining decades of stylings, in his arsenal, is also a harmonica and a loop station both known to get the party started.
Craig Smith newest to the Just Chords family is singer/guitarist gone Percussionist. Starting as a guest artist sitting in with the band on their cajón drum at shows, latin Purcussion became a passion for him and as Craig's drum set grew so did the time he spent on stage with Ryan and Charity.
Currently in 2015 Ryan and Craig forge on the Just Chords spirit by going out to play with the audience, who happens to be their friends, in mind. Enjoying drinks and banter, making sure every last soul at the show has a great time.
With a set list that is ever growing you know your in for a party when you step out to a Just Chords show!
