About Kris
The road for Kris has been an adventure filled one for sure, from touring with pop-punk bands in his younger years too, “faking” his way around like a drum tech. Kris has always stood by the idea that if you want something bad enough you will learn along the way until you have perfected it. This is what Kris did for years as a drum/guitar tech for Sara Bareilles, but it never showed. Kris eventually found his way to LMFAO where he got to tour the world with the Party-Pop Band.
