Greenville, SC – THE VEER UNION, Canadian rock bank from Vancouver, BC, dropped in at The Firmament on April 5th to celebrate their 10 Year Anniversary Tour. The name of the tour reflects 2019 as marking ten years since the release of their first major-label album, Against The Grain.
After making the long trek from their previous stop in Colorado, the band was eager to hit the stage and brought the explosion of bottled up energy with them! CRISPIN EARL (Lead Vocals), DAN SITTLER (Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals), RYAN RAMSDELL (Guitar) and RICARDO VIANA (Drums) brought the crowd heavy-rock favorites and also delivered a selection of more acoustic-style melodies. This mixture of their set-list lined up nicely with the band’s latest album, Decade II: Rock and Acoustic, which contains 18 tracks with electric and acoustic performances.
On stage, THE VEER UNION showcased a live performance that proved a brilliant combination of the strengths each musician brings to the whole. Take the catchy hooks and powerful riffs from SITTLER and RAMSDELL, along with a blasting tempo and flying sticks from VIANA, then dose it with the captivating force and solid range from CRISPIN, and it produces an electrifying collective.
The band’s time in Greenville also took on a unique familiarity. Maybe it was the impact of coming off the road after many non-stop miles or the close atmosphere existing at the venue that evening; whatever contributed to the relaxed tone, there is something to be said about how these informalities can become special moments and create memorable connections.
