Karabas is equally comfortable sharing the stage with legends like The Marshall Tucker Band, or current country stars like Jerrod Niemann.  With enough energy to fill the biggest arenas, and the intimacy to satisfy a small club audience, Karabas has a solid repertoire that he delivers with high energy spontaneity.  "Chris always makes a set list....but he never follows it" says his band.  He'll read the room and adjust accordingly.  All of his songs are "works in progress" and he'll often turn up the energy on his ballads if the energy of the crowd is calling for it.  The band takes no breaks. "A break from what?" Karabas says.   "I like to keep the energy going all night"

There's more to country music than trucks and beer, and Chris Karabas writes about it in poetic fashion. A great songwriter, and one that Music Row should pay close attention too ”

— Maverick Magazine

Karabas' live shows have earned him opening slots for artists like "Jerrod Niemann, Billy Bob Thornton, The Marshall Tucker Band, and many others.  His ability to engage a crowd is among the best.  When playing shows in the bars, he likes to avoid taking a "break" in favor of doing a 3 hour set. "A break from what? he asks.   Playing live  IS THE BREAK"
