Side Jams, Episode 7: Chris Caffery

Guitar maestro Chris Caffery is known for playing with Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Savatage, Spirits Of Fire, and on his solo albums. He is also involved with three outside enterprises. For nearly a decade, he has been a partner in the hot sauce company High River Sauces. He also sells art and jewelry that he makes from sea glass. And his stuffed animal mascot Wilbur The Metalphant is a social media celebrity that has spawned a line of 300 different items — clothing, clocks, glasses, school supplies, and more. Many of the proceeds from these latter two endeavors go to children’s cancer and elephant sanctuary charities.

I called Chris at his home in Orange County, New York via Skype for our podcast, and he displayed as much passion and enthusiasm for these endeavors as he does for his music. All of these pursuits bring him joy.
