Toronto Star “Playful and flirtatious, whimsical and wry, Verch is in peak form, having reached a transcendent level of musicianship where hard-earned technique can be safely abandoned.”

New AVB album just released!
The April Verch band is thrilled to annouce the release of their brand new CD, That's How We Run! The band spent early February hidden away in the hills of Asheville, North Carolina recording their latest self-produced album and can't wait to share it with you!  Recorded in one big room with engineer Chris Rosser and joined by special guests, the AVB tried to capture the energy and distinctive feel of a “live string band” from days gone by. With old-time, bluegrass, and original fiddle tunes and some old country-tinged original vocals thrown into the mix - there’s a lot to look forward to on this new recording – such as appearances from Rayna Gellert, Bobby Hicks, Chris Sharp, Matt Smith, Bob Carlin, Dirk Powell and Riley Baugus.  You can read April’s blog about their studio experience here and find all kinds of ordering info here

We make the music - they make it possible

The April Verch Band would like to thank two great sponsors who help make the music possible: D'Addario Strings and Colorado Case Company.  April plays exclusively with D’Addario Helicore strings (in heavy gauge) that are perfectly matched to her aggressive style of playing, with quick bow response (watch April play and you'll understand just what quick is!) yet render a clear warm tone with sustainability and longevity. D’Addario offers a wide variety of strings for just about any musician – please check out their website for more details.
Traveling all across the globe as they do, the AVB really appreciates the protection of a Colorado Case. They know that the engineering and expertise craftsmanship that goes into every case they produce goes a long way in making sure the instruments arrives in top shape after a long trip – even if the band doesn’t! Colorado Case is the choice for most professional traveling musicians – specializing in custom and hard to fit instruments. Please check out their website to see their product offering.
