If Burlington, Vermont needed to boast of a supergroup, Radio Underground would make the short list. The band is fronted by Arty LaVigne (ex-John Tower Group) on lead vocals and rhythm guitar with Mark Christensen (Brooklynn’s Ghost Ghost, Stone Document and projects with Robert Fripp) on lead guitar and atmospheres, Chris Simard (The Proper, Chuck the Plains) on bass and Andrew Bedard (People are Strange, Intergalactic Taxi, The Amida Bourbon Project) on drums. They combine forces to take roots rock and Americana into space and beyond.
Mighty Loons are a high energy band that blends Rock, Blues and Reggae into a highly danceable groove.With over twenty years of gigging experience in Vermont and New York, the Loons play both originals and unique covers, and recently released their third album “Dirtbags & Sages”.
