The Arty LaVigne Band
It’s been the proverbial long, strange trip to what is now known as The Arty LaVigne Band. What started as a duo collaboration with long time collaborator Mark Christensen when their band The John Tower Group dissolved, it is the current culmination of the sound of John Tower, Radio Underground and Bardella (all bands Arty and Mark have worked together in).
The focus is the songwriting and sound of their original material as well as a deep love and appreciation of the early 1970s sounds of both Haight Ashbury and Laurel Canyon. Included in the foundational mix are drummer Andrew Bedard (from Radio Underground and MANY other local acts) and Jeff Barrows (the “B-A-R” in Bardella) on bass and additional vocals.
