HI. We're Brian Mauer and Ben Verson. We've been writing, recording and performing music for over 35 years together. What do we call it? HMMMMMMMMMM, we're not sure. We incorporate any and all styles. We hope you will find that we have succeeded in homogenizing a unique style. Influences range from classic rock (Beatles, Who, Zeppelin) to Folk, slip in a bit of bluegrass, and an equal amount of metal, and you get...Something, without a name.
We have in the past (all the major rock clubs in Chicago). We don't right now. We have the mantle of "parental responsibilities", which take a great deal of our time. Given the limits, we are chosing (right now) to concentrate on writing and recording. We do LIKE to perform (and both of us are quite natural hams, and bon vivant, rapier wits. Bwawahahahah.) Special moments...leaving 300 people cheering on their feet at the Cubby Bear, on a mid-January Wednesday, on the coldest day of the year (28 below zero)
An amalgam of:
The Moody Blues
Fender Jazz Bass
Takamine E132SC Classical
Alesis QS8 (2 of them)
Tascam 2488 (2 of them)
Digitech GNX4 and Digitech Vocalist 5
Line 6 Wireless
Give us a try. You may REALLY like it. Feel free to leave a comment. We love to learn, and love to communicate with our musician brothers and sisters. This is a passion for us. We want to live it and share with all.
And if not, just order the ham or the Hot Pockets
