Van Ghost has also just released a few brand new videos! Our dear friends Ian Gelfand (American Pickers/Kings of Leon) & Grayson Ross (MTV/VH1) have teamed up to produce and direct an official music video for Domino Effect and our local video superstars Howey/Davis productions have put together Return To Innocence and Modern Day Love Affair videos using footage from Wicker Park Fest, North Coast Music Fest, & the Black Wednesday Affair at Schubas for our Thanksgiving 2011 show! Ian and Grayson also have a Cage video in the works that will be released in the coming months… so you’ve been warned!
To celebrate the release of the new EP & videos we are leaving on a March Tour of the South Eastern USA! If your town is not on this list don’t worry, we’ll be doing plenty more shows this year and are coming for ya!
That’s right y’all, this one has been burning a hole in our pocket for a few months and we are so proud to finally release it! Produced and Directed by our dear friends Ian Gelfand (Director of American Pickers on History, Kings of Leon “Use Somebody” live in San Francisco, MTV/VH1) & Grayson Ross (MTV/VH1) please enjoy (courtesy of Dustimmoff Music) the official music video for The Domino Effect now!
Happy new year and holiday season to all of our beloved fan ghosts and let’ get ready to do it to it together in 2012!!
On Jan 28th at the Congress Theater in Chicago, IL (for the first VG performance of 2012) join our very own Michael Harrison Berg and his longtime collaborator Chris Gelbuda for a rare and intimate acoustic duo set supporting some of our very favorite acts in Americana Music (Drive-By Truckers, Dawes, Joe Pug, Bailiff, & many others!).
If you are an aspiring songwriter and want a chance to perform at this event alongside VG and several others you have a few more days to enter the “Last Banjo Standing” Contest. (You do NOT need a banjo in your ensemble to enter or perform, it’s just a clever name). Here is the link hosted by our buddies over at DO312: http://do312.com/lastbanjostanding
Happy new year again and thank you all endlessly for your support in 2012, it is priceless and beyond appreciated.
That’ right. Those of you connected to us on facebook and twitter already know… but for those of you who are just visiting us online for the first time… The song DOMINO EFFECT won the Grooveshark pick the single contest!! Thanks to everyone for voting and getting involved!! As we put the finishing touches on our second full length album ‘The Domino Effect” we thought we’d release a 4 song teaser EP of what’s to come. We want to let’ y’all know it’s officially available globally everywhere music is sold digitally on the web. In celebration of the contest winning song, and all the new & old fans who discovered these songs during this contest, we will be releasing a video for the song in the very near future! Stay tuned and remember if you sign up for our email list the EP is yours for free!! Otherwise, link HERE to grab or preview it on iTunes…
Bear Creek Music Fest in Live Oak, Florida, (one of our favorite fests in the country) is right around the corner! We play on Sunday Nov 13th on the Campground stage at 3pm. VG contributor Natalie Cressman will be joining us for that performance as well! Link HERE to see the full schedule!
Gonna be in Chicago the night before Thanksgiving? Get your best black & white duds ready for “The Black Wednesday Affair” at Schubas for our first headline show in our hometown in over a year! Silver Wrapper, Van Ghost, & Schubas all strongly encourage ALL black & white attire. The band will be participating and this can be anything from something “Domino” related to a cocktail dress to a zebra outfit to a wig or a masquerade mask with mardi gras beads and anything in between. Just ALL black and white. RSVP on Facebook, learn more and discuss costume ideas HERE. Longtime VG contributor Allie Kral will also be making an appearance to join us on stage that night!
