ABOUT US

When I'm not wearing my Mr. Chris badge, I'm out exploring and adventuring with my 2 little gassy bubbles, Aidan & Abigail, as well as my wife Lisa. I also enjoy sneaking up on people and farting on them & baking bread.

A Little More about Mr. Chris:

The band is managed, owned & fronted by Mr. Chris (Chris Torti). Between 1998 & 2003, Chris obtained his Early Childhood Education diploma & Honours degree. He has been working with children and families for nearly 17 years in a variety of different capacities.

In 2005, Chris shifted his focus to children’s music and puppetry. He realized his true talent while facilitating large parent/child circles for the Ontario Early Years Centre. 

Since then, Chris has created 4 children’s/family albums with the Gassy Bubbles family.

Mr. Chris has a whole lot of shining to still do, so stay tuned to see what’s next

 

Mr. Chris & the Gassy Bubbles are a fun & interactive children’s music band from Toronto, Canada. The band is fronted by children’s educator, Mr. Chris (Chris Torti), who is also the band’s writer and producer.

Since 2005 the Bubbles have been spreading their brand of family music events all across the province of Ontario; performing for festivals, fairs, schools, daycares, hospitals, libraries, camps & many other corporate events.

The Bubbles brand of children’s music is unlike any other kind. Through extensive research and observation, the band is aiming for the stars, with their unusual take on children’s music. They’ve carefully crafted every song to have equal appeal to both children and adults.

The band has stayed authentic to their pledge to nurture and foster children’s imaginations by involving their own children to help create their music. On the Bubbles upcoming release, the band’s children have written the album dialogue, as well, they are singing on a few tracks.

The bubbles have a great deal of ground to cover; and hope the world will respond in a positive way, to their funky vibrations.

On June 24th, 2017, the Bubbles will be releasing their 4th family adventure album ‘Map of Icosahedron’
