Mark Lavengood Band
Grand Rapids' native son Mark Lavengood has toured 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, 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 and 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 more, 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.
