- Their Sound: roots rock—“if,” says frontman Kurt Neumann on the band’s bio, “by ‘roots’ you meant blues, rock, country, and soul all slammed together in one sound, then I’d say yes—that is the sound of American-made music.”
- Their Beginnings: Formed in 1984 by Neumann and high-school pal Sammy Llanas, the band was crowned Best New American Band by a 1987 readers’ poll in Rolling Stone and later rocketed into the national spotlight with their feel-good hit “Closer to Free” when it was used as the theme song to Fox’s Party of Five.
- Their Latest: the just-released I Can’t Stop, which showcases the band’s signature bluesy stompers and melodious pop nuggets and follows 2012’s American Made, a song-circle travelogue through the American dream.
When Victory Theatre opened in 1921 as part of the Main Street Hotel Sonntag complex, the denizens of Evansville were fed a daily diet of high-class vaudeville: a silent movie, comedy skit, organ music, and then a 10-piece orchestra. In 1928, that dependable formula changed when “talking” pictures arrived, and the venue remained a Loews movie theater until 1971. Having survived a late ‘70s stint as a teen-oriented nightclub and a site for Partridge Family reunions, the Victory emerged triumphant after an extensive 1999 renovation. Now with room for 1,900 audience members, the entertainment mecca hosts top-tier musical and comedic touring acts and plays home to the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra.
