Villanova produces a universal sound with a demographic that surpasses age, gender, and race. The live show is an electrifying mix of musical virtuosity and playing passionately written original songs. Brian Conner, lead singer/songwriter and guitarist for Villanova has perfected a unique style of soulful rock.  Conner’s’ guitar skill is a combination of technical jazz-fusion and Jimi Hendrix inspired licks which beautifully blend with the powerhouse and tight-pocket playing of bassist Bobby Dredd and drummer Jeremy Finesse Roberson. Dredd’s prominent string slap style is proof that he is a graduate of the old school of funk. Roberson (drummer and backing vocals) has the ability to maintain precision timing while he adapts his playing to any genre of music. His unique and smooth style has earned him, numerous accolades and led him to be known by musical peers and fans alike as none other than “Mr. Finesse”. Walking musical encyclopedia DJ Able One brings samples, cuts, beats, and keys to the quartet to complete this colorful canvas. He is a mad scientist that will blow you away with his turntable trickery and masterful musical manipulation. Before joining the soulful rock of Villanova, Able produced and recorded many local and regional hip-hop artists.

With a tight and precise rhythm section, sincere soulful vocals, and the collaboration of scratches and samples, Villanova creates an unusual blend of danceable jams, hard driving rock songs, and soulfully written ballads. Villanova places a heavy emphasis on melody, singing, and lyrics. The songs are radio friendly and meant to be rocked live. Villanova strives to produce music that touches people’s hearts and captures a respectable fan base of music lovers.
