chris daniels & the Kings

The Kings Are:
Chris Daniels, rhythm guitar, vocals
Colin "Bones" Jones, lead guitar
Chris Stongle, drums, vocals
Kevin "Bro" Lege, bass, vocals
Dean LeDoux, keys, vocals
Darryl "Doody" Abrahamson, trumpet, vocals
Jim Waddell, alto, tenor sax, flute, vocals

Chris Daniels is not related to Charlie or Jack so he's had to bust his ass with his guitar -- starting as a 17 year old song writer and guitarist back in the 70s when he played with Kate Taylor, David Johansen, (before the New York Dolls) and later with Russell Smith (after The Rhythm Aces). Chris has preformed thousands of shows, touring 46 out of every 52 weeks. He has worked making records with some of the most respected musicians in the business including Sonny Landreth, Sam Bush, David Bromberg, Al Kooper, Bill Payne, and Don Was to name only a few. As a record producer he produced the powerful Hazel Miller “ICONS”, her award winning jazz CD featuring standards and guests like famed trumpeter Ron Miles.

As a singer, guitarist, song writer, and band leader Chris has served as musical director with his band when the Kings backed Francine Reed, The Coaster, Drifters, Platters, Bo Diddly, Was Not Was, Mary Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Percy Sledge, solo members of Little Feat, Sam Bush, John Cowan and many others.
