SORT BY Relevancy
in Rock Music
A fun-loving and animated band, the Van Burens strive to make each concert experience unique. Whether hosting a bathrobe dance party, rocking a cruise ship on Boston Harbor, throwing a holiday show that puts Festivus to shame, or simply rollicking through a set list full of surprises, the VBs make every night a time to remember. The band – named after the eighth and greatest President of the United States, Martin Van Buren – began when a high school band reformed post-college and began gigging at bars and house parties, boasting an eclectic catalog of original music and covers and displaying a singular sense of humor. The style of the music ranges from funk to progressive rock to electronic dance grooves to anything that fits the mood. Their first EP, issued in Fall 2009, brings the dance party to your eardrums; just a taste of an exciting, diverse live show.
The VB have played such big stages as Sullivan Hall, Canal Room, and Bitter End in NYC; The Middle East, Johnny D’s, Harper’s Ferry, and Copperfield’s in Boston; and various rooms throughout the greater northeast. In the Spring of 2010 the Van Burens successfully brought their sound across the U.S. on their first-ever national tour, hitting venues in L.A., Chicago, San Diego, Atlanta, San Francisco, and many other cities.
