Kris Lager Band is a Nebraska born group of musicians who have dedicated their lives to learning, living, and loving all aspects of the American music tradition. Self proclaimed "Roots Revivalists", KLB brings an eclectic, high energy show to each and every stage they happen to land on. The musical palette from which these troubadours draw upon is strongly rooted in the Blues and Classic Rock stylings, but has touches of Funk, Jam, R&B, barrelhouse Country, spicy Latin beats, cajun Zydeco, as well as Gospel music, and some hip hop thanks to freestylist extraordinaire John Fairchild AKA Scooby Sha Bo Bo. Playing nearly 200 shows a year for the past 5 years, has brought tightness and diversity to every set they play and audiences across the country will agree that Kris Lager Band is on the right path. The band consists of John Fairchild on the drums, Brandon Miller on the bass, Jeremiah Weir on the clavinet, organ, & percussion , and Kris Lager on lead vocals and guitars. With their "Celebrate Life" mantra and good times vibe, every show runs the gamut of human emotions. Joy and sorrow, love and lament are all wrapped up in one musical experience where the only constant is pure Soul. KLB spent 2006-2009 mostly as Indigenous. Indigenous is the highly acclaimed blue/rock act, who garnished extensive radio play with their debut 'Things We Do', and has toured with BB King, Buddy Guy, Los Lonely Boys, and many more. Indigenous front man Mato Nanji handpicked these guys to be his nationally touring band and backed him up on his nationally released 'Broken Lands' CD on Vanguard Records. They have traveled from N.Y. to L.A., and Winnipeg to New Orleans playing a mix of his and their own original music.
