Hey Everybody-

Started a new band called TELECTRO with long-time music collaborator Matt Cullen and bassist Bill Sebald, based here in the Berks County area. I’m playing all acoustic now, along with Bill and Matt’s electric bass and drums, but we will be doing electric gigs soon enough, and at that point the bands’ second sets will start to look more like my album ‘Telectro’.  Our set list is currently made up of mostly my newer originals and some covers and will of course evolve over time.  Our mission is to mix Stone Poets-style songwriting with blues and out-there jamming, with some vocal harmonies thrown in on top. We’re also going to have some 4th seat sit-ins from time to time, I’ve been keeping a list. Our first show went well and we have a few more coming up, closest being March 24th at Mike’s Tavern in Reading, PA.

I’ve also started a new endeavor I do hope continues, that of ‘theater musician’, which is a hoidy-toidy way of saying I got hired to play some music in a play. The play is called ‘Pints, Pounds & Pilgrims’, and Irish comedy written by Ara Barlieb and put on by The Crowded Kitchen Players at Unicorn Theater in Catasauqua in March.  I’m actually more than just a hired musician, I also play a hired musician in a play within-a play, have some lines and get put to good use playing both mandolin & Barry Mando and even get to perform a few original instruments. Because of that and the fact the the CKPlayers are a fun, kind and nurturing band of creative types, I’m hoping I get to do this again. If not I’ll still be happy with the experience of doing this play, and you can check it out March 17-18-19.

Here’s a nice write-up in the Allentown paper

January/February 2017

January 25th, 2017

Happy New Years Everybody! I hope things are going well for you and yours…

We had a great holiday season this year, starting with Halloween and ending on a high note with family and wonderful friends. There are many that I miss, but I’m thankful for the ones I can still connect with. I’ve been doing some songwriting, and pencil drawing, since the weather veered south and I’ve been preparing to start recording the new batch of songs, starting at drummer Matt Cullen’s house in West Reading, PA with some basic tracks. He and I recently did a show where I played a few of them with him for the first time that you can listen to HERE.

Kris Kehr & Matt Cullen – Northeast Taproom/Reading, PA – 12/17/16

I’ve recently finished uploading my collection of Recipe recordings from 2003, here’s one from the night Johnny Cash died when I did Rowboat…

The Recipe – Church of Universal Love & Music/Acme, PA – 9/12/03

I still have a bunch of great shows from 2002 I want to post as well but I probably won’t start that project until closer to spring.

Hey Everybody-

Here’s a recent show Julie & I did locally here in the Leesport area…Kris & Julie Kehr/Meadowbrook Country Club – 6/24/16

Here’s my July show at Mike’s in ReadingKris Kehr/Mike’s Tavern – 7/15/16

I’ve been going through the process of mastering and uploading all the Recipe recordings I have here in my archives from 2002 & 2003. Many were either given to me or recorded off the board when mixed by Tim Stiegler, our favorite sound guy -employed by the band whenever he was available from his main gig with The David Nelson Band (and later NRPS, currently Moonalice), and who engineered and recorded the sessions for the never released album we worked on in a warehouse in Asheville, NC in the summer of 2003. Not all my uploads are sourced to Tim, there are house mixes I recorded to DAT off the board when I had the chance.

Here are some links to a few of my favorites, recordings that take me back to that time and place, inside the room and surrounded by a bunch of fun and talented musicians. Some of these recordings are mine, some were already posted…
