Religion of Love is:
Jeremy Gibson- Lead guitar, Vocals
Alvaro Mangual- Bass
Chris Raubenstraw- Drums
Bruce "Thumper" Mahler- Mouth Harp and Percussion
We are a band of humans who want one thing for this world…
That is for every living thing to get to feel peace and harmony. Vibrations are all around us. And for us to have the opportunity to add to these vibrations with what we have for you all makes everything feel okay.
Jeremy Gibson started this musical vision with his guitar and thoughts of sharing a gift. Along the last two years he has gathered several musicians who share his vision. He is the engine that keeps this locomotive of Love rolling down the track!
Alvaro Mangual (bass guitar) was the first to be trapped by Jeremy, he is influenced by several genres and needed to play, as they spent time jamming and grew as friends Alvaro realized it was time to share his gift on stage as well and joined in on the hijinx
Chris Raubenstraw (drums) picked up on the vibe early in his friendship w/ Jeremy, while just hanging and enjoying Jeremy and Alvaro’s shows from time to time he found himself at an all day show that they was playing to support local music, and well there was an empty drum set behind us and the rest is history.
Bruce "Thumper" Mahler (harps and percussion) and Jeremy met early in this venture. R.o.L. was a gift to both of them that didn’t go ignored, but was diverted by life. As the first chance meeting after a year or so went by, it was obvious that Religion of Love still stood in the hearts in which it needed to. Mahler was on board the very next show.
