The Vindys Bio
Since 2013, The Vindys have become one of the most sought-after, premier bands in the Northeast Ohio area with their unique blend of pop, jazz, and rock. They have been described as “a vibrant slice of vintage pop theatre.” (Music Connection Magazine) and “slinky, sultry, and jazzy” (Guy D’Astolfo, The Vindicator). Through the incorporation of multiple genres into one cohesive sound, The Vindys have the ability to appeal to a wide audience. Their versatility and incomparable style is one of the many reasons why The Vindys are a rarity amongst other groups.

Their professional sound, as well as alluring stage presence and magnetic charisma, is supported by the band’s background and expertise in music performance, education, and production. Personnel include Jackie Popovec on lead vocals and guitar, John Anthony on guitar and harmony vocals, Ed Davis on drums and harmony vocals, Scott Boyer on bass, and Rick Deak on guitar and harmony vocals. All are classically trained musicians from the distinguished schools of Capital University Conservatory of Music, Dana School of Music, Slippery Rock University, and Mike Curb College of Music. The Vindys combine their skills and experiences resulting in a depth and maturity in their music that is intricate, yet relatable. Because they are a Youngstown-based band, The Vindys are passionate about representing Youngstown as a place where the music scene is thriving.

The band frequents live music venues in Northeast Ohio and were featured live performers at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The House of Blues, Beachland Ballroom & Tavern, Youngstown State University, Kent State University, Walsh University, Federal Frenzy, Vex Fest, and Revive Music and Arts Festival. Additionally, The Vindys have shared the stage with nationally recognized solo acts and groups such as Hunter Hayes, Marty Stuart, The Drive-By Truckers, Reeve Carney, The Clarks, Welshly Arms, and Judah & the Lion. Their single “Too Long” was named Number 2 on The Summit FM’s Top 33 Local Songs of 2017. Additionally, their album Keep Going was featured as one of Canton Repository reporter Dan Kane’s top 10 albums of 2017.

 

 

Marc Lee Shannon Bio
Shannon’s more than 30-year career has taken him from his hometown of Akron, Ohio to Los Angeles and back again. After leaving home at 19 to attend the Guitar Institute of Hollywood, Shannon found himself playing with now legendary West Coast bands such as the Rave-Ups, in the alt-country scene that included Lone Justice, the Blasters, Kimm Rogers and the Beat Farmers. Back in Ohio, he brought his extensive musical expertise to the bands The TopKats, the Midlife Chryslers, and most notably, northeastern Ohio legend Michael Stanley’s backing group The Resonators.

Now, he returns with Walk This Road, his first album of material in over ten years, produced by Ryan Humbert. With a selection of songs that will appeal to fans of Buddy Miller, Jason Isbell, John Hiatt, and Tom Petty, the album crisscrosses Marc’s musicial influences — from barn-burning rock and introspective ballads to acoustic blues and vintage country.

Along with Humbert’s role in the album production, members of other popular northeast Ohio acts, including Welshly Arms, Shooter Sharp and The Shootouts, The Vindys, The Speedbumps, and Ray Flanagan and the Authorities, also make guest appearances.
