“With regard to opening the SGA-sponsored Train concert at ETSU: "Dula’s performance was top-notch and worthy of its own show. The amount of energy and enthusiasm that came not only from Dula, but as well as from the whole band was very entertaining. I also liked Dula’s message of loving one another and coming together as Americans and as a campus. I hope he gets the opportunity to open for future shows as well."”
"For the 2013 Spring [East Tennessee State University] SGA Concert, Kryss Dula and Friends will be taking a giant step forward ...They will be opening for Train. SGA senators Johnny Ameen and Cade Herron created a resolution that proposed that Kryss Dula and Friends be allowed to open for Train. SGA passed the resolution 26-0, with none abstaining.
"Dula seems to have a contagious spirit for music that translates to the audience –literally. Each month, Chris gathers an unpredictable group of musicians of all ages and genres to perform a library of songs..."
"It’s refreshing to participate with new musicians and always a pleasure to join other players who simply enjoy the art form. Most important is the liberating spirt of expression as this ensemble (who perform monthly at the coffeehouse) celebrate an evening of loose liberty of joy and participation surrounded on all sides of the stage."
"Kryss Dula, Steve Marshall and Steve Reese have been playing as a unit of late, and have been attracting larger and larger numbers of people to the Acoustic Coffeehouse"
