The Venice Christmas Show - SOLD OUT!!! Biography
Trying to describe the music of Venice is a little like trying to describe a perfect sunset or the feeling of first love. It transcends words -- you just know it’s great. But since this is a bio and part of its responsibility is to use words to convey the unconveyable, try mixing the rock & roll of 70s era Aerosmith with the folk storytelling of James Taylor, mix in some Earth, Wind & Fire funk, some Maroon 5 pop, a little Craig David R&B soul, harmonies reminiscent of the Eagles at their best, and then combine old school arrangements with modern production layered with brilliant musicianship, remarkable vocal stylings and lyrics that are intelligent and often laced with wit, and you’re in the ballpark.
Whether performing as a 7-piece rock band for 50,000 festival attendees, or as an acoustic quartet for an intimate audience of 100, Venice never fails to get the crowd up and dancing with their infectious melodies and high-energy grooves, or to bring them to tears with their poignant themes and heartfelt delivery. Venice’s distinctive sound has made them a favorite of some of the biggest names in the business. To list just a few of the artists and bands they’ve either performed or recorded with, there’s Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Elton John, Phil Collins, Sting, Melissa Etheridge, Cher, Ozzy Osbourne, Stevie Nicks, Michael McDonald, Billy Idol, Heart, Chris Isaak, the Doobie Brothers, Styx, Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys, Dolly Parton, Linda Rondstadt, Kenny Loggins and Warren Zevon.
