Vinyl Groov Band Leader: Harold Lowery
Harold Lowery was born at Fort Bragg, in North Carolina. Being the son of an Army veteran explains his regimented and detailed personality. These traits definitely are an asset and very evident in his event planning and customer service.
Harold is known as ‘LARK’ by his family, friends and long-time comrades.
Lark began his music /entertainment career as a vocalist in the group “The Pains of Love” in Harrisburg, PA. It wasn’t long until Lark became the band leader and the group performed regularly throughout the Northeast Corridor of the USA. Lark’s organizational skills and passion for R&B music drove him to keep the music alive and kicking.
The next step professionally, was to build the band CHILL FAC-TORR. The group recorded on Philly World Records and had a very significant run, not only in the studio, but also with concerts and other public appearances.
Since 2008, Lark has been leader of the band “Vinyl Groov,” an outstanding special occasion dance and show band, and lives in the Harrisburg Area with his family.
"Vinyl Groov has been the headline act for Jubilee in Mechanicsburg (PA) twice and each time there is the demand to bring them back next year. Their combination of R&B, soul, funk with all the horns and vocals are a crowd pleaser and motivator. I could have them here every year and it wouldn’t get old. Not only are they great to listen to, but easy to work with - a show coordinator's dream." - Jeff Palm (Exec Director of Mechanicsburg Chamber of Commerce)
"My husband and I had Vinyl Groov Band perform a our son's wedding reception. Everyone stated they really enjoyed the music. The VGB made you want to Groove whether you were standing or sitting. We recommend the VGB for any occasion." - Pamela B "very happy"
"I have worked with Lark Lowery and Vinyl Groov on two occasions, our daughter’s wedding 3 years ago and the 100th anniversary celebration “Big Night, Peace Love and the JCC this past December. I found Lark to be very easy to work with, responsive to my many requests which he handled professionally and with ease. When we were deciding upon a band for the 100th anniversary celebration I immediately recommended Vinyl Groov to our planning committee as I knew that they would be perfect and that I could count on Lark to expertly take care of every detail for the performance leaving me one less thing to worry about as we planned the event attended by more than 500 guests! Following the 100th anniversary celebration I had guests calling me to get the contact information for the band and 6 months later I still hear comments about the fabulous the band at Big Night!" - Margie Adelmann ( President and Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg) - 100th Anniversary Celebration
"My wife and I have followed this band since its inception we find them to be a great band both musically and vocally we have attended many sold out events and have urged friends to attend with us and they have enjoyed themselves I know they have revamped themselves recently and and man the right moves were made they are a great addition to any venue" - Glen Hostetler
