Jocelyn and Chris Arndt

So Jocelyn and Chris Arndt has already played some shows at SXSW 2017. With SXSW finally here, we went out to Big Picture Media day at San Jac Saloon! This finally gave us a chance to meet and interview one of our favorite bands! See the full interview below:


They talked about how it feels to play music with one of your best friends (who just happens to be your sibling), how life is like on the road, where the inspiration came from for Shame and Jagged, and how it feels to come play at SXSW again!

If the interview was not enough. Here is a little more background on one of our favorite bands. Jocelyn & Chris Arndt are a sibling blues/rock duo who are absolutely killing it on the charts.  They have a song that is recognized on jambands album Top 30, where the album sits with the legendary band The Rolling Stones and amazing bands like Lettuce! If you read our previous blogs on this sibling duo you already know why you should have already caught their first shows at SXSW!  We like to think they are destined to be the next Florence and the Machine. If you haven’t checked out our previous post on Jocelyn & Chris Arndt head over to Jocelyn and Christ Arndt to perform at SXSW 2017 and give it a gander.


Also just because we love this song so much we decided to give it to you again! If you don’t find yourself looking them up after the first 15 seconds of hearing Jocelyn sing or Chris start shredding his guitar…then maybe you don’t like music! We have much love for these two! Check out their song “Shame” below:
