THEY'RE BACK - for their first Christmas concert outside California!
PLEASE BRING A COAT FOR THE SALVATION ARMY "COATS FOR KIDS" ANNUAL CAMPAIGN
Trying to describe the music of the band Venice is like trying to describe a perfect sunset or the feeling of first love. It transcends words. Mixing the rock and roll of 70's Aerosmith with the storytelling of James Taylor and harmonies reminiscent of the Eagles at their best and with old school arrangements mixed in with brilliant musicanship and remarkable vocals and lyrics that are intelligent and laced with wit, well now you're in the ballpark.
The concert will feature familiar Christmas music in the Venice style, some of their own music, and a premiere of material from their new album.
"Venice is the best vocal band in America right now.They're better than anyone else I know. This is my favorite band in the world." --David Crosby
"Venice, one of my favorite bands, is quintessentially Southern California. We have played numerous times together at each other's concerts. They sing and play their asses off. On two seperate occasions, I booked them for large outdoor venues where we were doing benefits, and they took the audience who had not come to see them completely by surprise. It's such a pleasure to play with them because they have the power. " --Jackson Browne
