ROCKIN' DENVER BAND TAKES IT TO THE ROAD AGAIN
"Harry Nilsson meets Blood Sweat & Tears at Randy Newman's House." - Vintage Guitar Magazine, July 2010
"You can't really understand until you see them live... to hear art this good, to experience such a series of incredible
moments is not something you forget...Their (The Congress) self-titled album is phenomenal, and each track blows
me away." - Magazine 33, December 2009
The Congress begin a late
summer/early fall tour beginning in their native Colorado on August 29th and then stretching into Lawrence, KS
(9/30), Louisville, KY (10/2) and many other points in the South, eventually landing in Little Rock, AR (10/29). See
full tour dates here.
In a little less than a year, Denver based band The Congress has established itself as one of the most dynamic live
acts in the Rocky Mountain region (And recently knocked the socks off JamBase Associate Editor Dennis Cook
when they played S.F., evoking everything from Wilco to Little Feat to Weezer and still sounding like very much their
own band the whole damn time).
The Congress began as a creative endeavor between Richmond natives Jonathan Meadows and Scott Lane. Lane had
moved to Denver in 2008 to begin work as a freelance and studio guitarist. Shortly after, he convinced Meadows to
make the move as well, and in September of 2009 the two founded The Congress along with Damon Scott and
Dwight Thompson. Since then The Congress has performed more than 100 shows across the nation on the strength
of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. The album was recorded in Denver, Colorado by Grammy Award
Winning engineer, John Macy (Gladys Knight) and co-produced by multi-instrumentalist, Daniel Clark (K.D. Lang,
Mandy Moore, Courtyard Hounds).
