From chiprichter.com:

Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter serves up stories, songs, and smiles family style. Chip's family concerts feature something on the menu for everyone. It's a recipe for more fun than a kid should be allowed to have as Chip delivers healthy portions of love and laughter for all ages to enjoy! Fun, smart, high energy music with a positive message that connects with kids & adults. We're interested in giving kids the opportunity to experience live music with their parents, it's absolutely a family event designed to be interactive, inspiring and safe for all ages, creating moments for families to take home as memories.

Touring nationally as a solo artist or with his band "The Munks," Chip's delightful performances are filled with his gentle spirit, pleasant and winsome style, and an unmistakable connection with family audiences. Chip's solo music has been compared to James Taylor and Phil Keaggy and indeed offers a tranquil, folk appeal. But there's also a whole rockin' side to his music when Chip is joined by his band The Munks.

Chip and The Munks have a sound that some have compared to a kid friendly Dave Matthews Band and finds a welcoming audience among parents as much as children. Attending one of Chip's Family Concerts is truly a unique experience, it's not a "kids show" and it's not an "adult show"... it's exactly what it's billed to be... an all age event... FAMILY CONCERT!

Chip Richter is a perennial favorite at the University's annual Jammin' in Your Jammies concert, scheduled this year for November 22.
