2018 is going to be a big year for the Mark Lavengood Band. National and International tours, writing and recording, and breaking into new markets are among the top of the "to-do list" for Lavengood and his Grand Rapids-based entourage. Having recently relinquished his full-time position with Lindsay Lou, Lavengood is eager to bring his "Folk - Roots - Americana" sound to audiences he's performed for near and far!
A native son to Grand Rapids, Michigan, Lavengood has enjoyed touring the Regional, National, and International music circuits for over 10 years. Wearing a multitude of hats as a multi-instrumentalist, singer & songwriter, band leader, teacher, active member of Michigan's Earthwork Music Collective, emeritus member of Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, catalyst for the John Prine tribute band, "Prine Time," source of motivational energy, hobbyist massage therapist, Spanish translator and idea generator, Lavengood (affectionately known globally as "Huggy Bear") employs his skill sets to engage with communities through song, voice and collaboration.
Anyone that has witnessed Lavengood perform will attest to these three key attributes: his big heart, wild energy on stage, and the aptitude on the many instruments that he plays. Having released 2 LPs and a 7 inch vinyl under his own name in conjunction with 2 LPs, an EP, and an album on the way with International touring act, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, Mark Lavengood is no stranger to the hustle of the music industry. He is currently promoting his third full length album, “We’ve Come Along," released May 11th with Earthwork Music.
