The Vancouver, WA band performs a mix of modern country, rock and blues. Like most music lovers, Virgo Rising's musical choices reach beyond the borders of any one style. Their Rock N' Roll roots show as their song choices are driving with strong vocals and powerful guitar, regardless of what genre the song is called. Virgo Rising can perform as an acoustic duet, acoustic trio, or full band with rocking drums and bass and powerful, gritty guitar leads. One thing that makes this band stand out, besides their music selection and musicianship, is that all four members can really sing. And I do mean really sing. As a result, Virgo Rising is turning quite a few heads in the Vancouver / Portland music community.
Rebecca Chipres of Vancouver's Ultimate Heart Tribute Band - HEART BEAT - fronts VIRGO RISING. She shows astounding versatility as she transitions smoothly from Miranda Lambert to Guns & Roses, from The Band Perry to Orianthi, from Lady Antebellum to Grace Potter And The Nocturnals. Her voice is remarkable, her smile contagious, her love of music and performing undeniable. She adds keyboards and even some flute on occasion.
Christine Sneeringer, also in HEART BEAT, turns many heads with her performance and amazing abilities on the guitar. Anyone who thinks that girls can't play guitar need to look again, because this girl ROCKS!
Dan Sneeringer brings in the low end on bass. Along with Christine, he has opened up for national recording artists including Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Lonestar, and .38 Special to name just a few. The boys in Rascal Flatts were peaking out from behind the curtain when Dan starting singing a Brian Adams song, because they wanted to know who had THAT voice! The couple has performed in front of as many as 15,000 people at festivals on the East Coast.
Ti Tigre has music in his blood. He is the son of a drummer, and began touring before he could even drive a car. He is rock solid, adding his vocals to the mix for a full sound that is unlike any other band around.
With musicians, vocals, and performance like this, Virgo Rising is sure to get your guests on their feet, singing along, and moving to the music for a great evening of unforgettable fun.
