The list of Cleveland based groups he has performed with includes Swank Motel, Rhesus Amok, The Aphrodesiatics (2004 Cleveland Free Times “Best Hip-Hop/R&B/Funk” category winners), SAFMOD, Mifuné (2007 & 2008 Cleveland Free Times “Best Ethnic/World” category winners), Revolution Brass Band, and the Buster Backfat Orchestra. Kris has been nominated in the “Best Horn” category by the Cleveland Free Times readers in 2007 and 2008. He has written arrangements for the nationally recognized group, the Lakewood Project and is continually pursuing his dream of writing music for film. Kris has also had the pleasure to record with Mifuné, Replife, Lounge Kitty, and the Trepanning Trio.
