The Kari Ehli Band has the distinction of being a band with three primary areas of artistic and performance focus: 1.) Blues, 2.) Original Music, and 3.) Dance Music. Growing up, Kari lived in both Tacoma and Montana and as a result had a wide range of musical influences. She began her recording career at age 14 when producer David Jaedyn Conley brought 3 of her original songs to full fruition. She first began performing with her band at the age of 24, and has since built a strong and loyal following.
