Chris Moore formed the band Pop Mechanix in 1979. After touring New Zealand and releasing several successful singles, Pop Mechanix moved to Australia. Forced to change their name they became ZOO and toured Australia supporting major touring acts and headlining in smaller venues.
Chris Moore returned to NZ in 1984 and began playing solo. Playing well-known songs and some originals he quickly became popular with students and in South Island hotels. During the snow season he regularly performed at Mt Hutt, Cardrona and Ohau, discovering a niche of affordability as bands struggled. After successfully selling copies of a cassette called 'Welcome to Malvern County' at shows, he produced 3 original CDs 'Long Nights Walking in the Wasteland', 'H.A.C.K.', and the double CD 'Live/Life is Good' which form The Aim Higher Trilogy. After 20 years experience entertaining Chris Moore has become adept at audience involvement developing a unique style and able to adapt his show to suit any event.
