The soulful reggae sounds of Christos DC band returns to Sotto. Valentine's Day weekend. Saturday, February 16, 2019. Join us 8pm to 11 pm.

The singer-producer, multi-instrumentalist Christos (aka Christopher Vrenios) was born and in Washington, D.C. He his the son of opera star Anastasios Vrenios. He takes his name from his Greek heritage, using a nickname given to him by his grandmother to represent the lineage that set the tone of his musical path.

It was Christos' deep appreciation for the sounds coming out of Kingston, Jamaica that led him to produce and record with legendary reggae artists Sly and Robbie, the Firehouse Crew, The Itals, Augustus Pablo, Sugar Minot and Don Carlos, the original lead singer from Grammy-winning group Black Uhuru. He also has co-written and recorded with the world-famous Thievery Corporation. He spent several years on the road as a guitarist and backup vocalist, performing in the United States and abroad.

In 2008, he released his first full album, Time to Rise, followed by his second release, Under the Sun which led him to create the D.C. based independent record label Honest Music. His last full-length album Long Road was released on Earth Day 2014 and received critical acclaim. The first single and video Just Talk To Me features Kenyatta Hill, son of icon Joseph Hill from the trio Culture. The summer hit of 2015, Righteous Chant, finds him reunited with Don Carlos. The song Heart Of Gold, a reggae rendition of The Neil Young classic song released in the latter part of last year and topped several charts in Amsterdam.

In 2017 Christos released, “Speak The Fire”, from his fourth album entitled Tessera, is a collaboration with Zafayah, one of the best up and coming reggae artists from Bulgaria alongside The Skankin Monks, powerhouse band/ production unit from Amsterdam. The single reached number 18 on Reggae World Charts. The latest release, Tessera Dub, is a reggae dub remix of the latter album. This critically acclaimed project features Mad Professor, Tippy I Alfred (I Grade) and legends Sly & Robbie (Black Uhuru, Grace Jones) ”Love is the frequency of which the Creator works through one another," Christos conveys. ” This is why I make honest music."
