1:00 The Velies

The Velies is a band based in the Quad Cities, USA featuring local music veterans Tom Swanson, Mo Carter, Marty Reyhons, and Aaron Jorgenson. The band writes, records, and performs introspective original music. They rely on the organic sound of acoustic and electric guitars, bass, ukulele, and drums, as the bed for rustic vocal harmonies, creating bittersweet meandering songs with urgent undercurrents. Swanson and Carter share lead vocal duties while all members lend supporting roles in that department, often intertwining parts. The Velies perform for audiences of all sizes in the Quad Cities and the surrounding areas, from intimate clubs to festival stages.
