Soulful Rock Sounds of The Congress coming to NedFest
NedFest is pleased to announce that one of Denver's hottest up-and-coming bands has just been added to Saturday's line-up. The Denver Post calls these guys "Colorado's answer to the Black Keys." The trio of Scott Lane on guitar, Jonathan Meadows on vocals, and Mark Levy on drums is a rock band but with heavy R&B leanings. The Tahoe Daily Tribune described Meadows' singing as being like "Stevie Wonder with a ballcap and a bushy red beard." In just four years together have already played Wakarusa and High Sierra and just released their third album, "The Loft Tapes," last month.
Jonathan Meadows and Scott Lane are both originally from Virginia. In 2009 Lane came out to Denver to go to music school and a year or so later he convinced Meadows to join him. Drummer Mark Levy, who grew up in Denver, joined the band in late 2010. Check out this Second Story Garage video where Scott Lane shows off some awesome jazzy guitar licks: http://youtu.be/
