PRESS QUOTES

“The folks in Memphis who run the International Blues Challenge wouldn’t let Ron Yarosz try out this year. Yarosz is too good. IBC rules prohibit anyone from competing three consecutive years. So while top unsigned bands from throughout the world will battle again this upcoming weekend in Memphis, after winning qualifying rounds in their home districts, Yarosz will play a homecoming show instead. Ron Yarosz & the Vehicle will entertain Saturday night at the Monaca PNA Club. With a B3-organ- and harmonica-powered sound that’s slightly jam-band-ish, Yarosz & the Vehicle have drawn comparisons to Blues Traveler, Gov’t Mule and the Allman Brothers. Turning their sights away from Memphis this winter, they’ve been busy drumming up online votes for another contest, where the winning band gets to play the main stage at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden. As of now, we are in the running,” Yarosz said.” —Scott Tady, Beaver County Times

“A visit to the International Blues Challenge…is a commitment of a life time. Returning more than once…those acts are hungry for the exposure to musical opportunities, the like-mindedness of their fellow musicians and blues fans, and ultimately …the sharing of the music. The expense, the time and the preparation is not for the faint hearted. Part two of Memphis Bound led to a talk with Ron Yarosz who is returning for his third try” —Jonnye Weber, American Blues News

“Front man, Ron Yarosz, has a briefcase full of harmonicas, a 500+ lb organ (which he loads up himself from show to show), and a passion for music like none other. When he plays, his facial expressions will show you how of the music moves him. If you close your eyes and let the music hit you, you will know how it effects you. It hard to describe… as you might have noticed in that last sentence, but when you experience it, you will feel that energy flow through you too. Being the lead vocalist too, Ron may be the driver of ‘the Vehicle’, but he has a few passengers with him for the ride.” —Steve Puskar, RockErie.com

“Ron Yarosz went years without winning a RockErie Music Award. Now the plaques are piling up like Pete Townshend’s smashed guitars. Yarosz won two REMAs at the 2012 RockErie Music Awards, held Sunday night at the Bayfront Convention Center. That makes it five total in the last two years for either Yarosz or his group, Ron Yarosz and the Vehicle. “I don’t know what I have done differently,” Yarosz said with a smile after winning for favorite essential artist. He also won for favorite keyboardist. “I just love the fact that the whole music community comes together in one room: rockers, blues players, jazz guys. It’s awesome.” A sellout crowd of 1,500 attended the event many local musicians call “Erie’s Grammys.”” —David Bruce, Erie Times News
