One thing that Remembering Venice holds close to its heart is perseverance. The daily incorporation of this ideal is what pushes them forward in their personal growth, relationships, faith, and music. In 2005, Remembering Venice was formed by Mel Burns, Alex Wetzel, Scott Mitchell, and Robert Stein. A school that all former members had attended, Venice Heights, held memories that all members had designated as highlights of their life. Former bass player Alex Wetzel said, “It was one of the most influential periods in my life.” Life experiences shape all music that Remembering Venice creates. Drummer Robert Stein states, “Sometimes our songs sound gritty and sometimes they sound clean, the sounds change with the progression of our growth.” After a period of time, former rhythm guitar player Scott Mitchell decided to step away from the band, “It wasn’t easy”, stated singer Mel Burns, “It was a kind of a test, but we kept going.” Although only a three piece band now, Remembering Venice continued to persevere and make an imprint with their music.
The EP “Where Angels Fear to Tread” was released in early 2006 and became a great stepping stone for further music writing. After completion of their EP RV Attended the Tom Jackson music conference, and then also traveled down to New Orleans to play at a youth conference for three weeks. Remembering Venice was taught about the music industry, and also about performing in great detail. Utilizing these newly acquired skills, Remembering Venice began to play as many shows as possible and became a regional hit. Playing with major label artists such as Skillet, Family Force 5, Jeremy Camp, Crystal Meyers, and Pocket Full of Rocks, Remembering Venice proved to be a worthy act. With an interest in expanding their musical style, RV went out to find a fourth member for the band. The fourth member ended up being the lead guitarist, Jason Julian. Cleveland native Jason added a lot to the RV sound. Jason said, “It’s a privilege to be able to perform with such talented musicians.” RV took their new asset and traveled to North Carolina for another Conference to increase their knowledge even more.
Shows arose with big name acts such as Disciple, and Children 18:3. Right now Remembering Venice is recording their first full length album entitled “The Beauty of Broken Things.” “We are going take our time on this one, we are picky, our fans are picky, and we won’t let them down” states Dickman. The album is due for release in late 2008. Remembering Venice has climbed many mountains and refuses to trip over the rocks, and that is how Remembering Venice displays perseverance.
