Performing together since 1980 and consisting of two sets of brothers, Venice’s music is a reflection of growing up in the California beach town for which the group is named. With sounds at once familiar and fresh, their music is a winning hybrid of folk/rock/soul. Venice’s trademarks are their beautiful harmonies, personal lyrics, and high-energy shows; their distinctive vocal sounds have allowed them to perform and record with some of the biggest names in the music industry.
Venice, one of my favorite bands, is quintessentially Californian, with soaring harmonies. They sing and play their asses off. I’ve seen them knock out many an unsuspecting crowd, taking the audiences, who had not come to see them, completely by surprise. It’s such a pleasure to play with these guys, because they have that power.”
- Jackson Browne
Venice is the best vocal group in America right now. They’re better than anybody else I know. They’re fantastic. I’m a student of harmony. That’s my thing. I love all kinds of harmony. But I particularly love theirs, because it’s so natural. It’s not like anybody else’s. Very unforced, very from their hearts. I’ve been telling people about them since the first night I heard them. I’ve told everybody I could find that they were the best. This is my favorite band in the world.”
- David Crosby
I’ve been listening to Venice for years! Their vocals and harmonies are so beautiful. Something that I really learned from as a singer!”
