From The Valley...featured in our Tavern Friday Night

Posted February 23, 2012


From the Valley was formed in the spring of 2011, in Las Cruces, NM. From the Valley’s members include Dustin Vendrely (Vocals/Guitar), Zane Watkins (Lead Guitar), Marcos Cadena (Drums), and Manny Rodriguez (Bass). From the Valley plays original songs that fall somewhere between country music and rock ‘n roll. Each member of the band brings a different style of music that shapes the overall sound into something that covers multiple genres. From the Valley also plays the cover songs that people love to here, which can be anything from Dwight Yoakum and Journey, to Talking Heads and Led Zeppelin. You are guaranteed to hear things at a From the Valley show that you would never hear otherwise. In July of 2011, From the Valley was named Champions of the Graham Central Station Battle of the Bands. From the Valley is looking forward to begin the recording process and release an album in the near future. Until then, come see From the Valley live. You won’t be disappointed....come join us Friday, July 27th in the Ivory Tusk Tavern!
