THE BLUE VAN with CROBOT, and ROMANS at the Pike Room



THE BLUE VAN


Since 2004 The Blue Van has been touring most parts of the world. In between touring – counting not only 300+ shows in US - but also numerous concerts in Europe and Japan, they've had time to put out 3 critically acclaimed albums: The full throttle mod’ster album "The Art Of Rolling" (2005), the more organic west coast manifesto "Dear Independence" (2007) and the symphonic guitar-rock piece “Man Up” (2008). The Blue Van, whose name was chosen from the vehicle that transports patients to mental institutions in Denmark, have been playing together since the age of 12. The four members of the band raised in the Northern region of Denmark come from modest backgrounds as sons of carpenters, truck drivers and farmers, yet have quickly garnered international attention with rave reviews for their live shows and recordings in Rolling Stone magazine. Notable live performances have included extensive tour dates with Australian rockers, Jet, as well as opening dates for Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Keane, Razorlight, Hot Hot Heat and The Pretenders. After more than 15 sync placements (mainly with songs taken from the previous album “Man Up”) including a worldwide Apple Ipad Ad, the band debuted at the 82nd Academy Awards, the theme title for the hit TV series “Royal Pains”, for which they received a BMI Award for most played song on US TV composed by Europeans, plus placements in shows such as NCIS, 90210, CSI, Scrubs, Private Practice and also the MLB video game just to name a few.. The Blue Van is gearing up to unleash their 4th studio album entitled “Love Shot”.
