I’m pumped to announce that I’ve got a new single coming out in a few weeks, “Rock n’ Roll Radio”, with b-side(?) “Let Go”. This is a preview of Losing the Frequency, out this fall. Featuring Kurt Baker on bass, Tom Hall on guitar, Craig Sala on drums, mixed by Wyatt Funderburk, mastered by Dennis Mortensen, written and produced by yours truly. Out 3/30!
I’m also pumped to by heading out on the road this April with my pals Soraia, The Connection and Jeremy & The Harlequins for a Little Steven’s Underground Garage Presents showcase! We’ll also be jamming with special guest, The Black Souls, in Boston! Hope to see you out!
Happy New Year to all you rock n’ rollers out there! And everyone else too, I guess. 2016 is going to be a great year for rock n’ roll and I hope to see you all at some point before 2017! I’ve got a lot in the works with a new album, new EP to follow, heading back to Spain, jamming with friends, and much more!
This month I’ll be heading out west to sit in with fellow garage rock n’ rollers Soraia, at Echoplex in L.A. for the The Muff’s 25th Anniversary show! Also on the bill as direct support is Prima Donna, so it’s not one you want to miss if you’re in the area! It’s a Little Steven’s Underground Garage show, as well as being hosted by Mighty Manfred of The Woggles, and a great UG DJ in his own right. I’ve got more news for this April, but first let’s get pumped for L.A.!
We’ll be leaving soon for a long weekend on the road! We’ll be with Dan Vapid(Screeching Weasel, Riverdales) and The Cheats from Chicago! Here’s the details!

Just wanted to say “hey!” and also let you know what I’ve been up to since being back from Europe. In between catching up on sleep, drinking buckets of coffee and running around with the coon cats I’ve had stuff to do! The Kurt Baker Band had a great record release party at Geno’s in Portland, ME back on November 26th. The Pontiff’s played a reunion show and that was really something else. Rock n roll to the core! The night after that I went down to Kennebunk to play at The Hive. It’s a cool little art gallery. Got to play some Beatles covers with Sam Anderson(who also played a great set of his own) and had my friend Lindsey Markellos Clancy do a few songs too. Overall it was a great evening!
I’m really excited to announce I’ll be doing a show with The Dirty Gems at The Red Door in Portsmouth, NH on Jan. 17th as part of my good friend, Geoff’s, Birthday Sock Hop. It’s going to be a wild party with the Kurt Baker Band, The Connection, and KR and The Dirty Gems. It’s a Tuesday night(Birthday regulations) so make sure to request some time off the next day! The poster is cool too!
Also if you haven’t heard about the Kurt Baker Band playing New Year’s Eve at Empire Dine and Dance with The Mallet Bros…now you know! Please consider us when contemplating the 100’s of New Year’s activities that evening!
The trip was a huge success for the KB Band and we can’t WAIT to go back to Europe and rock again! Stay tuned for more Kris Rodgers Music updates and videos soon! Rock n roll!
This was also one of the best shows in Italy. It was the first time I DID NOT have to go under the fooseball table in Europe for being skunked. Amazing! You can also see my dictation on the wall!
This was def. one of my favorite stops on tour!!! We got to meet up with our old friends from Milano, Radio Days, and play a few sweet shows with them! The first was right in the center of Milano at a cool club called Ligeria. Pasta was had by all!
This was an AMAZING show! Spain rules!
I’ll be touring with the Kurt Baker Band in August down to Baltimore for Insubordination Fest. It’s going to be a killer set of shows so if you’re around come on out and buy me a beer!
