Kris Lager Band

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. KLB’s latest album is already garnering rave reviews and airplay all over the world and was mixed by Grammy Award Winning Producer, Jim Gaines (Santana, Van Morrison, Steve Miller, Stevie Ray Vaughan). 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. 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 creating a fun and interactive show laced with road tested songs, and contagious grooves.
