In 2020 I’m celebrating 20 Years of leading the April Verch Band and touring full time. As part of the year long festivities, I’ve asked you for your questions, you’ve sent them, and I’m answering them! A new video on the 20th, each month!
We’re excited for our first tour of 2020 in the Buckeye state! January 17-19 will be a weekend full of great concerts & workshops with stops in Peninsula, Perrysville & Wooster!
