Kris T Reeder

Kris T Reeder was born in 1984 and was brought up in a single-parent family in Banbury. His family claimed state benefits for most of his childhood. He has never met his father who is believed to be an African-American service personnel who served in the UK during the cold war. Kris T Reeder’s alleged father died in the 1990s after being shot dead outside his apartment in St Louis, Missouri, according to US archives. It is highly probable that Kris T Reeder’s paternal grandfather is Jeff Greyer, a drummer in the legendary ‘Prince Gabe and the Millionaires’ band.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
