Kris Lager Band
Kris Lager Band, the Thrift Store Junkies from the heartland, play soul music and Boogie Trance. With their hot new album 'Swagadocious' these self-proclaimed 'Rock Revivalists' are quickly spreading their celebrate life mantra to the masses, and blazing a trail that many more are sure to tread and follow.
The Kris Lager Band has spent the better part of ten years on tour honing their sound, style, and message, including backing Mato Nanji, as Indigenous from 2007 to 2009. During that period they were featured on the Vanguard Records release Broken Lands produced by Jamie Candiloro (REM, Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams).
Their new album features living legend Magic Slim on an impromtpu off the cuff track, as well as a polished horn section on five of the cuts. 'Swagadocious' marks KLB's fifth studio album with another to be released this winter/spring entitled 'Platte River Runaway' produced by Grammy nominated and international superstar Tab Benoit.
KLB is spearheaded by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Kris Lager, who rips out face melting solos and hypnotic riffs. Jeremiah Weir on keyboards and percussions is the perfect melodic counterpart and always brings the high holiness to the stage. The backbeat of the band is brought to you by freestyle extraordinaire John Fairchild, who has logged seven years with the group and is a tour de force on the kit. Brandon Miller rounds out the ensemble on bass with a solid low end that holds it all together and a high kick Chuck Norris would be proud of.
