The Congress

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With their noses to the grindstone for the past two years, The Congress hasn’t had a moment to notice their ever changing surroundings. They have been on headlining tours from California to Virginia, on support tours opening multiple nights for the likes of Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lake Street Dive, and Hard Working Americans, and have been incessantly playing their home turf in the Rocky Mountains when in between coasts. Founded by Scott Lane and Jonathan Meadows in Richmond, VA, The Congress brings notions of genuine musicianship and inventive songwriting to a modern world of dubious, cosmetic sound. Anchored by Jonathan’s throw-back, soul tenor vocals and Scott’s immersive guitar licks, The Congress is a band of real musicians, with real instruments, playing real music. Keyboardist Chris “Bernie” Speasmaker masterfully accents each tune with everything from throaty Leslie riffs and New Orleans dixiecrat piano to pounding electro-funk lines. Denver native and conservatory-trained badass Mark Levy holds down the drums with elegant precision and explosive dynamism. Their brand of Rock & Roll is neither nostalgic nor progressive; It occupies the space between vintage sounds and the hyperbolic cynicism of our post-modern world.
