Hey, folx! This is pretty off-topic, but hey, this is a page for a bar that no longer exists, so I don't assume I'll be offending anybody :D

Anyway, I've started a Patreon and created a page for my 'brand' that I'm starting. I'm starting to put out content (art and stories), and I would just love to invite all of you to check it out. I'll post previews and updates on the page, as well as the Patreon itself, so there's no pressure to become a Patron just yet - I'd absolutely love if you would give it a shot.

Thanks, everybody! I miss you all

A page to serve as the Facebook base for KrisCrossing, my brand of artistic content I'm releasing on Patreon!

Ayyy, all!

Facebook offered me a $10 credit to boost this if I posted it, so I figured, what the heck, I'd reach out to ya'll.

This is Kris, your friendly former DJ/KJ - How've you all been in the past few years? I've definitely missed ya, and missed the job! Hopefully you've all found another place to haunt. ;D

That's all! No real point to this, other than to say ... Hey!


[07/09/16]   Are you missing your favorite KJ?

Silly question, of course you are!

If you wanna see me (Kris) running some sweet karaoke once again, you should come to Chasers Bar & Grill - I'm running Karaoke here on Fridays and Saturdays.

My coworkers (and Bond) are a little different

It's been a while since I've gone back and thought about the fun times at JP's, so I thought I might share a silly video from a couple years ago that brought a smile to my face.

Was gonna take a picture, but I had to capture their glory on video.

[03/11/16]   To everybody who knew Mark Dempsey, there will be a remembrance for him at The Still, formerly JP's Restaurant and Lounge. The event will be tomorrow (Saturday) from 4pm until 6pm. It is being hosted by Diablo, good friend to Mark and new owner of the building.

[02/05/16]   By my count, the page should have been deleted two or three days ago. Not sure what's up. *shrug* Ah, well, as long as it's here, it's here.

[02/02/16]   Deletion countdown: Two days.

[01/29/16]   5 days until this page gets deleted. Say your goodbyes to JP's, Albany. We'll miss you :(

[01/20/16]   This page is now scheduled for deletion. In 14 days, it will be no more.

Thank you all.

[11/13/15]   I would like to apologize to everybody about the radio silence we've maintained on Facebook about recent events regarding the bar being closed for two months. Information will be shared soon. Changes are coming.

[08/05/15]   Tonight from 5 to 8 we've got some delicious tacos, and Randie has some homemade guacamole for you! Just 50¢ a piece! That's a deal you can't beat

[07/31/15]   When you're done burning up at River Rhythms, stop in here for a cool drink and some great music! We've got karaoke of you're feeling brave ;-) Sebastian's behind the bar, Kris is throwing out tunes, and Randie and Garrett are hanging out, so come join the party!

[07/16/15]   It's Humpday, and you know what that means -


At 9 o'clock tonight, Sebastian will be behind the bar and Kris will be running karaoke, but until then, come grab a drink with Randie!

[07/10/15]   After you wrap up a fun time at River Rhythms, stop on by JP's Restaurant and Lounge for a drink and a good time! We'll have karaoke and music until the wee hours of the morning, hosted by our very own Kris, with Sebastian behind the bar serving up the best drinks you've ever had! So stop in and keep the party going ;D

[07/05/15]   We started doing some Karaoke an hour or so ago, and we're still doin' it! So if you wanna finish out your 4th with some singing, come on down!

[07/03/15]   We are having a FANTASTIC karaoke night tonight! Everyone make sure to make JP's your go-to after River Rhythms on Thursdays - and every other day of the week, of course!

[07/03/15]   River Rhythms is here, ladies and gentlemen! Go on down and check it out, and when you're ready to get inside and cool down, grab a drink, and sing some karaoke, come check US out! Karaoke is happening from now until 2 a.m., so you've got PLENTY of time!

[06/27/15]   It's muggy and oppressive and terrible outside, but here in JP's, it's nice and cool! Come on in and grab an ice cold drink and relax with us! Beat the heat at JP's :D

[06/25/15]   Karaoke time! It's Wednesday night, so ladies and gentlemen, get your butts down here, put 'em in a seat, get a drink of liquid courage, and SING!

[06/20/15]   Kicking off another weekend here at JP's! Get down and beat the heat - it's nice and cool in here! - and grab a delicious drink served up by Garrett while grooving out to whatever you wanna hear, played by Kris!

[06/12/15]   Holy crap guys.

Tonight was AMAZING.

We had one of the busiest karaoke nights, if not THE busiest, that this DJ has seen in like 5 years!

Thanks to EVERYONE for coming down! Special shout outs to the South Albany teachers and the Red Robin crew who were out havin' a great time!


[06/07/15]   We just had a guy do a pretty sick air guitar solo to You Shook Me All Night Long. He even dropped to his knees to melt some faces.


[05/31/15]   Thank you all for a fantastic weekend! Last night was great, and tonight started off slow, but ended up being busy as hell! There was a GREAT crowd of dancers, and I got to play everything from Backstreet Boys to Michael Jackson to E-40. It was a good night!

Come back Wednesday and Thursday for karaoke, and Friday and Saturday for more dancin' all night!!!

[05/23/15]   Great end to our Friday night - make sure to come back tomorrow for some more music and drinks!
