Brian Vander Ark, as the lead singer and principal songwriter for The Verve Pipe, sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and produced a string of hit singles, including the #1 song “The Freshmen.” In 2005, the Michigan native struck out on his own and released his acclaimed debut solo CD, Resurrection, in 2005. Vander Ark continued that commitment with the release of his follow-up solo CD, Angel, Put Your Face On, and on his next effort, the eponymously titled Brian Vander Ark. Special Guests, Channing and Quinn are a quirky 2 piece duo Channing & Quinn often tour the country in a rather unorthodox way. In a live setting the two do the work of several musicians by playing guitar, ukulele, accordion, drums, glockenspiel, banjo and more.
