Chris Rich

Music Director/Leader

Keyboards/Background Vocals

For Chris, music has always been a passion. Coming from a musical family living in Chicago IL, he started his career at the very early age of 14 years old. After over 30 years of performing, Chris is still at it and absolutely loves what he does!


After relocating to Las Vegas in 1988, Chris was

fortunate enough to join many popular groups in the Las Vegas area. He has performed, backed and has opened up for many big name acts in Las Vegas such as, Sweet Louie & The Checkmate,  The Dramatics, The  Coasters, Al Sebay & Diamondhead, Scenario, Miami Swing, and many more. 

After 10 years dominating the scene in Las Vegas, Chris decided to relocate back to his home town of Chicago. There he joined his former posse and picked up where he left off. He has performed with many acts in Chicago as well such as, The Legendary Drifters, Street Talk,  The Savannah band, Jus-Cuz, Rendezvous, The Dakota

Horvath Trio, Manila Sound, and most  recently,

The Kuzzins band. 

Chris has always had a place in his heart for the good old fashioned Funk Horn bands. With that in his heart, he set out on his own journey to build something that Chicago has never seen. A 12 piece, monster Funk R&B Horn band unlike no other! For this chapter of his life, the journey has just begun.


This is Funk-Da-Fied!
