Dogs in a Pile is the culmination of a love of music born from the deepest American roots of psychedelia, jazz, fusion, funk, traditional, and rock & roll. Sprung from the rich Asbury Park music scene in New Jersey, their serendipitous convergence has made for the kind of kindred intuition its members had only once dreamed of. Described as “listening to a single moving organism,” the sum of its five parts represents an original journey into the peaks and valleys of psychedelic improvisation, all while remaining reminiscent of so much we love of life and music.

The final iteration of “the Dogs” began with University of the Arts Philadelphia student and Asbury Park veteran Jimmy Law, along with his long-time friend Joe Babick, a 4 year veteran of the gifted young musician’s program at the nationally renowned Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ. Lightning struck when they were introduced to Berklee School of Music student and bass player Sam Lucid, who immediately suggested fellow Berklee student and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Kaplan. The addition of fellow Berklee student and collaborator Brian Murray in 2019 made for the quintessential final piece in the Dogs’ puzzle. Their commonality and love for improvisation by way of bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish, as well as a fervent inclination for the study of jazz, fusion and classical music has helped shape the free-flowing style that is the Dogs. Their unique synergy and joy in creating “music as an atmosphere” equates simply to, as the band would say, “spreading good music and good energy to good people.”

KRIS is not a person, but a co-mingling of four minds. With firm roots in the heritage of American improvised music; they create a radiant sonic tapestry that is exactly as modern as each evolving moment.

They first tapped into their like minded approach to music in their middle school jazz band. Each taking turns on each other's instruments over years of late night jams in a musty Connecticut basement, they dug deeper towards the spark they collectively felt. At its core, KRIS’ sound is a result of their abiding friendship and continually evolving musical dialogue.

KRIS is dedicated to channelling the untapped energy of consciousness through their improvisations, and to the facilitation of your own inner exploration. At a KRIS show, you are free to let go, trusting your being will be well taken care of, by new friends: Billy Stark (Bass), Gabe Toth (Drums/Vox), Kiran Edwards (Guitar/Keys/Vox), and Ethan Klotz (Sax/Perc/Vox).
