CARL VERHEYEN AND BAND
GUITAR LEGEND CARL VERHEYEN AND BAND
LOS ANGLES, CA, March, 2016 – Carl Verheyen, recognized as “One of the World’s Top 10 Guitarists” by Guitar Magazine and “One of the Top 100 Guitarists of All Time” by Classic Rock magazine, today announced that he will bring his three-member Carl Verheyen Band on a June tour of North America, stretching from Chicago and Toronto down to Florida. And in September the CVB will play the western coast of the USA. This comes after the band’s European Festival tours in 2015 and the recording of a new release called “The Grand Design.”
The Carl Verheyen Band’s tour will be a rare chance for audiences to experience a powerful mix of blues, rock, jazz and even country from three world-class musicians in comparatively intimate venues. The Grammy-nominated Verheyen is joined by renowned bassist Dave Marotta, who has also performed with Phil Collins, Neil Diamond, Bruce Hornsby, Gino Vanelli, Manhattan Transfer, Kenny Loggins, and countless others. Marotta has also played bass on dozens of widely known movies and TV shows, ranging from American Idol to CSI. Ace drummer John Mader has performed or recorded with Booker T. Jones, Steve Miller, Pat Benatar, Patti Austin, Albert King, Randy Newman, and Bonnie Raitt. He has also played drums for several Tony Award-winning musicals, including Disney’s The Lion King, Rent, Mamma Mia, and the world premiere of Wicked.
Verheyen’s 40+ years of solo, band, and studio guitar work have progressed to where hardly a day goes by during which anyone with access to music, movies, or television doesn’t hear him. As a first-call studio guitarist, Verheyen is the guitar behind some of the most popular TV shows (Seinfeld, Frazier, Cheers, Happy Days, LA Law, Married with Children, among others) and movies (Star Trek, The Usual Suspects, Ratatouille, The Negotiator, hundreds more) of all time. In addition to his duties as Supertramp’s guitarist, he has performed and recorded with a who’s-who of music giants, ranging from the great BB King, to Joe Bonamassa, Cher, Brad Paisley, Christina Aguilera, The Bee Gees, and hundreds of others.
Verheyen provided one-on-one guitar lessons for John Fogerty and was a featured soloist at the Academy Awards, playing live to a TV audience of more than 67 million. For the past 30 years he’s performed in arenas in the 20,000 seat range with Supertramp. He has released 13 of his own CDs, mixing band music with solo efforts such as his 2015 recording “Alone,” a solo acoustic improvisational release. His newest recording called “The Grand Design” will be released in May of this year.
“This is the first time since in 4 years that my own band will tour the East and West Coast in the same year because of our busy schedules. So the three of are excited to re-connect with audiences there,” said Verheyen. “Dave, John and I love playing more intimate venues and we look forward to bringing our music and energy to both.

CJ Ramone is the artistic name of Christopher Joseph Ward, born October 8th 1965, known as the famous and latest Bass Player of the most legendary American punk rock band The Ramones. CJ joined the band in 1989 filling the most difficult shoes to be filled, Dee Dee Ramone’s, one of the founders and main composer of the band. Since the band retired, he has played in The Ramainz, which was formed by Dee Dee Ramone, Marky Ramone and Dee Dee’s wife, Barbara Zampini. He also played with Axe Attack, Los Gusanos, and his last group effort was with Bad Chopper.
He then devoted himself to family life but in 2008 CJ proved his will to rock hard again by launching Bad Chopper’s first CD. As lead singer and composer of all the songs, CJ put forth an album written during critical and dark moments of his personal life, in which CJ still makes room for visions of a better future. Comparisons to Ramones are inevitable, but not unique. CJ reveals his deepest personal influences: from classic bands like The Ramones, Stooges, Sex Pistols, Dead Boys and The Damned to more modern bands like Zeke, Speedealer, Fu Manchu and Queens of The Stone Age. The music is simple, but it glows by itself. It is still being acclaimed by the fans and the press as the best work ever recorded by any of the Ramones after the bands’ breakup. Just listening to this CD once will be enough to understand the reasons why CJ saved the biggest punk rock institution ever: The Ramones
