He met Drew and JB at Ike's Wednesday night bluegrass jam. Kris has a guitar pedal that plays radio waves. He used to be Drew's boss at a call center in Virginia. They play a variety of covers that should please any listener, fused between well-crafted originals that will make you laugh, dance and cry....well maybe not cry, but check 'em out. You won't be disappointed.
