With sales of more than three million albums worldwide, the Verve Pipe was one of Michigan rock and roll's great success stories of the 1990s. Formed in East Lansing, the band gained a following for its textured rock songs distinguished by inventive arrangements, soul-searching lyrics and layered vocals. Lead singer Brian Vander Ark has gone onto a solo career and become an Ark favorite with his songs of family, love, and loss. But after being approached to submit a song for a compilation album called "Calling All Kids," the Verve Pipe reunited to record their award-nominated kids' CD, "A Family Album." Now the creative spark touched off by those sessions has led to more Verve Pipe music for adults as well. The Verve Pipe has had a reputation for great, fan-friendly live shows from the start, and now they're back, up close and personal, at The Ark.
