Van Ghost

by Metroland Staff on November 15, 2012

THE BAYOU CAFÉ, SATURDAY

Fans of the Trey Anastasio band know the name Jennifer Hartswick as the trumpet player-vocalist who’s been collaborating with the Vermont-based group since she was 20. Van Ghost is the Chicago-based band that she co-fronts with guitarist Michael Harrison Berg. Don’t expect bombastic horn breakdowns from these guys, though. The project’s a fairly straightlaced pop-rock, alt-country act with radio-friendly vocals and Nashville production credits. Having released their debut The Domino Effect this summer, they’ve been cutting their teeth on the festival circuit and will make their first local apperance since Mountain Jam.
