Kryss Dula has been playing music for over 30 years. Originally from Charlotte, NC, he has resided in Johnson City, TN since 2004. He plays out an average of a couple of times per month under the name 'Kryss Dula & Friends,' where the latter consists of a large group of outstanding musicians. They never take money to perform, as Kryss is blessed with a great day job and thus has the privilege of playing without need for compensation. His group has played with many local bands and opened for the national acts Train and James Durbin. They often play charity events to help support a variety of causes. The group composition changes from gig to gig, and they are capable of playing virtually any event, with set ups ranging from solo acoustic to a large band format. They can play in the styles of rock, Celtic, bluegrass, and folk. They can also provide their own sound system (PA) for small to medium sized venues.
