Singer and guitarist Jeff Loven has performed at a variety of venues on numerous stages at clubs, universities and festivals, both locally and nationally.
Jeff won two Minnesota Music Awards and was picked by Steve Vai and Steve Morse as winner of Kahler’s International Guitar Competition. He has toured across the United States as guitarist for Obsession and Funhouse, rocked 93X-fest with The Coup De Grace and tore up CBGBs in New York with Crash Street featuring Melvin James.
Recently Jeff has enjoyed tremendous success performing solo as The Midwest's #1 One Man Band. Loven's Heavy Metal Polka has been a favorite request for many years and finally the song is available for download and you can also see the video on Youtube. Loven shreds crazy guitar licks--imagine wammy dive bombs, sweep arpeggios, screaming harmonics, exotic harmonic minor scales and loud and proud fingertapping somehow mated gloriously with...Polka!!!! The sing-a-long chorus will have you chanting "Zicky-Zacky Zicky-Zacky Hoi Hoi Hoi" in no time so grab a beer, bang your head and get the party started: Heavy Metal Polka has arrived! Bringing people of all ages together, Heavy Metal Polka is destined to become a classic and is perhaps the only song in history that will have your grandma join in the moshpit!
