Chris Daniels & The Kings 40th Anniversary show with Freddi Gowdy and special guests

April 4 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm MDT

Chris Daniels & The Kings mark their 40th Anniversary in 2024 with a new album due out in June. The KINGS formed in 1984 and produced their first album in 1985. Since that beginning the Kings have released 19 albums, performed in Europe 21 times and played for three Presidents, The Queen of Holland, and at Festivals and concerts from Rome to New York and venues from LA to Switzerland. In 2010, Freddi Gowdy of the Freddi-Henchi Band joined forces with Chris & The Kings creating a show with two inductees into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame (Chris and Freddi). Together they’ve released three albums including 2022’s “What We Did.” CD&K with Freddi and Hazel Miller.

THE KINGS have been described by the Los Angeles Times as “John Hiatt meets Tower of Power” and by Westword as “Keb Mo with horns.” The seven-piece band has won numerous awards for their horn-drenched rock n soul music and performed for audiences around the world. The Kings will celebrate their 40th year of touring internationally in 2024 with the release of their 20th album tentatively tilted “40 – Blues With Horns Volume II.” Volume-one of BWH reached the top 40 on the RMR National Radio Airplay Album Chart for 35 consecutive weeks and “Sweet Memphis” from that record reached #1 on the RMR blues singles chart.

Members of the band include award winning musicians whose careers include tours with the likes of Albert King, James Taylor, Tom Jones, Al Kooper, David Bromberg Sam Bush, John Cowan, The Drifters and many more. The band has backed everybody from Bonnie Raitt to Bo Diddly and in 2017 served as the backup band for Garth Brooks, Amy Grant, Vince Gil, John Oats, The Dirt Band and more at the CMHOF Fiddler’s Green Show honoring Dan Fogelberg in 2017. “Simply the best rock n soul show in Colorado.” Gary Schapiro Chanel 9 News.

Chris Daniels was a co-nominee for a Grammy Award in 2013 and is a two-time “Excellence in Teaching” award winning professor at CU Denver for the past 20 years. He served as the Director of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame from 2018 to 2020. Chris also served as the Director of Swallow Hill Music in the early part of this century (that’s why they call their concert hall “Daniels Hall”) and he is also a cancer survivor and the MC of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival since 2014.
