Still working on that hot first release.



If you are looking for an American band that breaks the mold being cast for rock bands in recent years then you've hit the jackpot. Rock, reggae, funk, soul, /spiritual--you name it and Ving delivers it with conviction. If you ask them to give a name to this musical punch they answer plain and simple “We call it Rock N Soul” an obvious play on the phrase Rock N Roll. But it’s all about the music and uplifting the listener with these guys, which they do by creating full, beautiful soundscapes incorporating a combination of tight up-tempo grooves and smooth ballads flowing underneath thought provoking lyrics. Lead singer and guitarist Albert Irving, a native New Yorker, started decades ago as a street musician in the tough neighborhood of Hells’ Kitchen, giving him plenty of experiences to write about. He now makes his home near Kansas City, Missouri, the group's base of operation, where he met Darrell Braden (bassist, vocals) both were playing as pickup musicians. Braden brought in the rest of the line up with brother n law Kevin Reed (drums) and longtime band mates Kitti King (vocalist) and Lee Berry (keyboards, vocals), With their additions this dynamic band became complete. Albert Irving and Ving's combined experiences and talent bind them to what is good about music and keep them always striving to give the listener their utmost. But please,don’t let those decades of experience fool you--they haven’t lost one bit of energy because of their years --they're hungrier than ever to make good music for years to come. Their latest CD is named “We All Love Music”. The title cut features just such music with guest performances by renowned classic guitarist Richard Johnson and reggae great Robin Armstrong (guitarist for reggae group Dub Culture). Your audience will thank you for bringing them the soul-satisfying sound of Albert Irving and Ving.
