Redefining the Texas sound; fusing Pop, Funk, Latin and Soul
The Vince Lujan Project (pronounced - 'LU-hahn'), an original and cover band from North Texas, is putting a new spin on the ever- evolving, all-encompassing Texas sound by infusing blends of Acoustic, Pop, Funk, Latin, and Soul. It's feel-good music with catchy hooks and accessible lyrics.
The diverse members each lend a unique style that effortlessly blends into a powerful groove, topped off with dynamic and smooth rock/R & B vocals. Come to a live show and you'll hear nods to (and occasional covers from) the Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, and Bill Withers.
The Denton, Texas-based Vince Lujan Project (pronounced LU-HAHN) has been jamming since members started meeting up in 2002, and its sound has become a fusion of acoustic, pop, rock, funk, blues, jazz, Latin and soul — a blend that defies easy definition but brings new energy to what is known as the Texas Sound and featuring an improvisational element that shines up the group’s sound even further.
With each player bringing something unique to the group — different cultural backgrounds they are proud to mix into their music as well as music educations and musical influences (including Dave Matthews Band, Santana, the Mexican rock band Maná, Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, John Mayer & Los Lonely Boys) — it’s a mix that turns listeners into fans and helped VLP win the Houston-based Live Music Records’ contest to showcase at the label’s South by Southwest event at Guero’s in March 2009.
Onstage, as band members listen to and play off each other, audiences are carried away by the positive vibe, the energy and the instrumental virtuosity. Band founder and lead vocalist Vince Lujan, born in Spring, Texas, was playing guitar in fourth grade and since has mastered classical, rock ’n’ roll and jazz guitar (and harmonica and trombone), formed and led bands, composed and arranged original music, and found an expressive vocal style.
With him are drummer-backup vocalist James “DJ” Montgomery, an Air Force brat who played his first gig at age 8 and among his influences cites world-famous self-taught stickman Dennis Chambers; and keyboardist Taylor Ervin, born on the Mississippi Delta and raised in West Texas, who began playing piano at age 3 and has developed a unique blend of raw and aggressive organ riffs and melodious piano lines.
Iowan Greg Rochford, on bass guitar and backup vocals, has more than 20 years experience playing with rock, jazz and classical groups, dedicated to technical brilliance and maintaining the rhythm and groove of a song. Saxophonist Aaron Whitman brings an air of jazz sophistication and pop sensibility that adds to the tight grooves and melodies of the overall sound.
Together, members of the quintet create a fresh sound that stays with listeners long after the groove has stopped.

What's there to say about Vince Lujan and the band (VLP)? They were absolutely amazing!!!! Not only did they preform a mixed bag of amazing covers/songs from their own repertoire , but they also learned a ton of new songs that my wife wanted to get played at the wedding. It really was a dream come true. As a (not so great) guitar player myself... they even let me come jam on stage! Jams, check. Horns, check. Funky bass/piano, check. Magical drums, check. What's not to love about a band that can do it all (LITERALLY)? It really was a special night and I think that the Vince Lujan Project had a lot to do with it. The people that came to our wedding STILL talk about it (and this is like 50 weddings later). Hopefully they had as much fun as we did!!
