"Breathes there a man or woman with a soul so dead as to never have craved a fix of good, old-fashioned, honest-to-God live horns ... one of the few acts with enough brass in its gorgonzolas to hit the road as a full-fledged horn band." BILLBOARD


TEN: So it’s an after hours party CD. The tenth Record and ten songs – but Chris Daniels & the Kings have always been a jam band with horns.
It started when Chris and the guys invented the “After Hours Jam” at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival for Fred, and they ran it for 10 years (yup, another reason for the title of “10″). Friends like Bella Fleck, Sam Bush, Tim O’Brien, John Cowan, Lyle Lovett, Vince Gil, David Bromberg, Peter Rowan, Jonell Mosser and hundreds of others sat in at the Sheridan Opera House, people hanging out of the balcony, on sessions that lasted until 3 or 4 am. Chris and the Kings established a tradition that has been carried on by String Cheese, Leftover Salmon, and a host of others. Legendary jams, Sam Bush with his Friebird, Bella with his brand new electric banjo, Victor Wooten and Edger Myer playing together with Bro for a three bass solo on Tower of Power’s “Don’t Change Horses”, left an indelible mark on the King’s style.: improve and experimentation. To this day CD&K are the only full-fledged horn-band to close the Friday night main stage at a bluegrass festival with an 18 minute version of James Brow’s “Living in America” which included banjo, mandolin, dobro, fiddle, lap steel, and washboard.
