"Koltak is an excellent singer and guitar player whose original songs are well written and have popular appeal."
- Stephen G Lardis
Manager & Proprietor, Horseshoe Inn
In an area where acoustic music is mainstream, singer/songwriter Chris
Koltak has taken live acoustic performances to a new level in the Rocky
Mountain region. Koltak, based out of Denver, Colorado, delivers a mix of
classic rock favorites and moving original material with a voice and style that’s
been favorably compared to Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam. His refreshing choice of songs allows him to capture and hold the
attention of any age group at a wide variety of venues.
Praised by fellow musicians as the “live performer’s performer,” Chris
has entertained diverse audiences at various resorts, taverns, restaurants, and
clubs in the Mid-West, Florida, Las Vegas, and right here in the Rocky Mountain Region for the past several
years. With his selection of classics and crowd-friendly original material,
Chris goes beyond the arena of other acoustic acts, leaving his fans thoroughly
entertained. “Playing live is my passion,” says Koltak, “and it has been since I
first started performing back in Ohio.”
Home to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, Ohio has perpetually created
some of the very best musical talent, and Chris Koltak is no exception.
Growing up outside of Cleveland, Chris began his career playing with various
rock and roll bands in the late 1990’s before moving to Colorado in 1996.
Koltak fronted a band here for several years until 2003, when he embarked
on a solo career while writing and recording his latest CD.
Chris Koltak presently performs over 200 shows a year across the country for audiences
of all ages. Whether it's in your favorite neighborhood pub, a resort, or any other special
occasion, you owe it to yourself to experience Chris Koltak Live.
