A genuine musical journeyman, Kris Lager brings a feel good musical experience everywhere he goes. One of those rare and dynamic performers who deliver a combination of musical ability and charisma, Kris Lager will make you want to dance, clap, and sing along creating a fun and interactive show laced with road tested songs, and contagious grooves.

“I wanna lift up your spirits through song and dance!”, Says Kris Lager. “When music is created from a place of love and delivered with good intentions it is undeniably powerful. There’s nothing better than making the people around you feel good. The ultimate compliment for me is when folks come up to me at after a show and say I was having a horrible day or I was in a bad mood and now I feel great.”

​Based out of Omaha, Nebraska Kris Lager Band has been zig zagging the country spreading their brand of “Feel Good Funk & Heavy Soul” for over 15 years. This spring KLB will release an album called ‘Love Songs & Life Lines’. It was recorded at White Wall Studios earlier this year in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and mixed by Grammy Award Winning Producer, Jim Gaines (Santana, Van Morrison, Steve Miller, Stevie Ray Vaughan). The album is a collection of love songs, and various heart tugging tunes featuring a more acoustic and Folksy/Americana side of Kris’ songwriting. The recording is a slight departure from their ‘Swaggering Rock ’n’ Roll’ and Blues infused electric guitar grooves that make up a lot their 2016 release ‘Rise & Shine’.

Kris Lager Band is quietly establishing themselves as one of the most storied and treasured groups in the Midwest’s music scene. They honed their skills for many years in and around Nebraska when in 2007 they were invited to hit the road as indigenous. They backed up frontman and guitar hero, Mato Nanji for over two years and were featured on Indigenous’ Jamie Candiliro Produced (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson) Vanguard Records release ‘Broken Lands’. You might also recognize Kris Lager from working and touring alongside Andy Frasco & The U.N. The group covered 3 of Kris’ songs on their 2014 release ‘Half A Man’ and have made ‘Sunny Day Souldier’ a staple at their live shows. This year they also featured the composition on their Ruf Records released live album, ‘Songs From The Road’.

The Legendary Bluesman, Tab Benoit is also a fan. Proclaiming “These guys are the real deal! Go see them whenever they come to your town!” He produced and recorded KLB’s 2013 release ‘Platte River Runaway’ at his home studio in Houma, Louisiana. Soon after they worked with Tab Benoit they went to San Francisco and recorded with Bay area funk maestros, Monophonics at their Transistor Studios. The result was 2014’s ‘Heavy Soul & Boogie Trance’ mixed by Orgone’s Sergio Rios. The release caught the attention of Ohio’s Colemine Records, who released two of the tracks as a 45 and also featured the release on their internationally distributed Soul Slabs LP.

DOMESTIC BLEND:
Domestic Blend is an Omaha based Soul Pop band featuring six unique musicians that love sharing the stage together. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Brady Wells, created the band in early 2016 after working on his craft in Chicago for a few years. Once he moved back to Omaha, he met bassist Matt Jones. Matt hails from Knoxville, TN, where he started playing the bass at age 9. His southern blues roots influenced his distinct style that makes him one of a kind on the bass. Lead guitarist Chris Doolittle is an Omaha native, but developed his guitar skills while he was living in Kansas City. Upon moving back to Omaha, Chris dove into the local music scene and quickly became integrated with many bands in the area. His ability to provide soulful guitar solos creates a dynamic presence in his playing. Vocal artist Ndzi Tante is a tasteful lyrists and expressive singer. His harmonies add colorful warmth and his clever and crisp raps add a unique hip-hop flair. Drummer Brandon Myers is the true backbone of Domestic Blend, straight from Colorado Springs, CO. His ability to groove in the pocket and tremendous stamina provides everything the band needs to get you dancing. Vocalist Olivia Malik joins us all the way from San Jose, CA, offering a bold feminine sound to the soulful sound of Domestic Blend.
