Long known as one of the best live acts in the business, BoDeans continue to tour year round and deliver amazing, high energy, performances. "I realized some time ago that the key to the BoDeans identity is the fans' connection to our music -- nowhere is that more evident or rewarding as when we come together live. We love to connect with fans who have supported us for so long and brought us so much inspiration." said Kurt Neumann, the band's founder and frontman, "We will continue to play as long as they continue to come out and sing along."
Chart topping songs like "Fadeaway", "Only Love," and "Dreams" won them Rolling Stone's readers poll for Best New American Band in 1987. They were part of a small contingent of bands that inspired a new radio format known as Adult Alternative, Album Rock-Triple A. Their reputation for delivering a dynamic live show garnered support slots with U2, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, George Thorogood, The Pretenders, David Bowie, and appearances at Farm Aid, Summerfest, and ACL, among others.
In the 20+ years that followed the release of Love & Sex & Hope & Dreams, the band released several albums which embody songs played heavily at radio, in tv shows, and movies and defined a sound that a generation embraced-songs like "Good Things," "You Don't Get Much," "Idaho," "If It Makes You," "Closer to Free", "Stay," "American," and, "All the World," which was recently featured on CMT. BoDeans now reside in that small group of bands that have managed to survive the ups and downs of the industry, remaining true to their sound and their style, for nearly 30 years. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum has them
permanently displayed as part of their Midwest Artists exhibit.
In 2012, BoDeans released American Made, their 11th studio record, which finds the group embracing their heartland roots and celebrating the American spirit. That year, they also released the double live CD Amped Across America which was recorded during the summer/fall of 2012. Summer 2013 marked the return of legendary drummer, Kenny Aronoff, who has played with the band both live and in the studio off and on since the mid 80's. Many of the band's biggest hits feature Kenny on the drums with longtime bassist Ryan Bowman, David Duffy on fiddle and mandolin, Stefano Intelisano on the keyboard and accordion, and Sam Hawksley with the acoustic guitar and vocals. The team joins Kurt and Kenny on the road and in the studio with a new record due out 2014.
Runner Up on NBC’s THE VOICE / TOP 5 Country Song “Human” (iTunes TOP 100) / Featured in USA Today / Featured in Rolling Stone / #1 ROCK Song (iTunes)
Singer and Songwriter Chris Kroeze connects with both the hearts and minds of audiences across various generations through his genuine country soul and his unique and alluring vocal delivery as he performs more than 200 shows per year. Kroeze performs all across the U.S. and internationally, including multiple tours overseas each year in support of our U.S. Armed Forces.
Early in life, struggling to focus and control an “excessive” amount of energy, Kroeze’s father gave him a guitar for his sixth birthday. It was that day that his musical journey started as he seemed to connect deeply to something special, and zero his attention and energy into his music. From the first time he stepped on stage at his sixth grade talent show, he was hooked. His obsession with music took him from the stage at his Middle School talent show to audiences of tens of thousands and Kroeze’s career has continued to escalate year after year. Along with headlining the majority of his shows, he has also had the privilege of performing with and also sharing the stage with music superstars like Montgomery Gentry, The Doobie Brothers, Travis Tritt, Blake Shelton, Joe Nichols, The Lost Trailers, Chris Kagle, Josh Thompson, and many others.
With overwhelming support of his home town of Barron, Wisconsin, Kroeze raised money to head to Nashville in 2014 and recorded his first single “Four Letter Words” at the famous Station West Recording Studio. That first single went on to receive heavy radio play throughout the Midwest and open numerous doors for the young musician.
A call from the producers of NBC’s Emmy Award Winning television show, The Voice, catapulted Kroeze onto the National Stage this year. Kroeze’s combination of vocal and guitar skills, along with his humility and small town country boy nature, captured the hearts of millions of fans from coast to coast. With guidance from his coach and mentor Blake Shelton, he continued to wow audiences week after week. “His potential is limitless” said Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.
Kroeze is set to release his new album early 2019. Kroeze lives in Barron, Wisconsin with his wife, daughter, son and their dog Meatloaf.
