People in Strange Places
'Whether opening VIP shows for the Goo Goo Dolls, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow and Dave Matthews Band at Verizon Wireless Music Center or kickin' it a the little club, this band will move your body and soul.' (Indianapolis Star) Music is a strange and special sort of magic that is capable of speaking both to the intellect and to the soul simultaneously. There are a lucky few who are gifted with the ability to communicate using this versatile medium, and we call them artists or musical communicators. The 11-track debut album (2005) from the Jeremy Vogt Band exemplifies the universal nature of this magic. Their message is forged through the simplicity of acoustical arrangements and pure vocals, or is it really that simple? Could it be a case of 'less is more'? In avoiding over-dubbed, distorted, nebulous mish-mash, the band has found a power that comes from the fundamental appeal of music: powerfully infectious melodies and complementary harmony presented in a way that effortlessly draws the listener into the music. With such a solid and memorable debut album making waves, it would seem that the band has a great deal to prove outside of the studio. This is where the Jeremy Vogt Band comes to life, winning over countless fans with their interactive, high-energy performances. The band continues to tour the Midwest while focusing on exactly what got them where they are: a passion for playing and making great music. The Jeremy Vogt (vote) Band is Christian Starnes (bass), Ryan Shore (percussion), Curtis Cree (lead guitar and vocals), Trevor Reynolds (B3 and keyboards), and Jeremy Vogt (vocals and guitar). Their self-titled debut was independently released on November 3, 2005. The band is currently playing shows in the Midwest. The band is currently working on a new album that will be released sometime in the Fall of 2008.
