Biography

The White Tie Affair is an Electronica Rock band From Chicago, IL

Chris Wallace: Vocals
Sean-P: Guitar, Programming
Ryan McClain: Keys,Vocals
Tim McLaughlin: Drums

The members of The White Tie Affair have musical A.D.D. Every thing they hear, touch and see influences them. The White Tie Affair is an adventure into pop, exploring many different styles and sounds. Whether it be sung, strummed, or programmed, you can bet they have tried to make it work. Front man Chris Wallace explains that the goal of the band is to “communicate their love for different kinds of music to anyone who wants to listen.”

Growing up in Chicago, the group started piecing together sounds - everything from Stevie Wonder to AFI to The Police and came up with original, catchy songs. The White Tie Affair finally unveiled their musical work, playing shows all over Chicago. Their home city continues to greet them with open arms as the band has sold out the Beat Kitchen and has been main support for Lucky Boys Confusion at the annual reunion show at the Metro.

It only took a couple of months before Slightly Dangerous/Epic Records took notice and the band signed a deal in 2007. Since then, The White Tie Affair has toured extensively across the country, playing over 250 shows, garnering press and die-hard fans alike. “We are living the life we always heard rock bands talk about when they were starting out É the band in a van, playing great venues in a different town every night,” says guitarist Sean P. “This is the life we always wanted.”

    This band really had so much potential [3] I'm sad we could see/hear more from them. I thought for sure they'd be huge. One of my favorite Warped Tour discoveries.

    Sucks they couldn't stay big enough to release a second album. First had a bunch of catchy tunes, and they were pretty tight at Warped 09

    I hate how they broke up, but then again Chris Wallace's solo stuff is a lot better.
