With a dozen top ten hits including two number ones to their credit and album sales that exceed 7 million records, they continue to carve out their own place in music history. In 1999 tragedy struck when Van was diagnosed with melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. In 2001 after a long courageous fight Van lost his battle.

Tom Bennett
Tom Bennett one of the last of the authentic folk blues singers, learned the blues sitting alone in a Georgia hayfield. There in the deep south, he found his passion. He soon after picked up the harmonica after being given one by an old woman. As fortune would have it he found plenty to sing about, riding the rails, hitch hiking and later dealing cocaine. His music gives the listeners an authentic sound and restores the lost art of story telling through music. Each song weaves together a tapestry of misadventure, love, and what it means to be a true blues man.

This one man band has spent the last year touring the greater continental US. With increasingly larger shows, . If you have the opportunity to attend one of his many preformances you will be guarenteed an experience that won't soon be forgotten. Tom is currently booked solid through august of this year touring most of the West Coast and throughout Colorado.
