They started out in the mid 60s with Henry Viniski on lead guitar/vocals, Terry Featherly on rhythm guitar, Fud Comstock on bass and Bob Straubing on drums/vocals. When Henry passed away, the band regrouped for a benefit for his family. Bob took over lead/vocals and they added H. DeRue as drummer. They have been playing in and around the Rochester/Sodus/Newark area for a few years now!

John B & the MVPs have been working in the Rochester and Wayne County music scenes for more than a dozen years. During that time, they have been gaining momentum with a carefully-selected song list, leaning heavily on Tom Petty’s music as well as other great classic rock and Americana. You won’t want to miss this band!

creative. He has a deep passion for music. He writes his own original music and has it on

over the Finger Lakes Region. Country music is his main focus, but has all kinds of music in his

sound using live looping, despite being a solo act.

Country music artists such as Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley have also impacted the style,
and content of his writing.
“I just want to write meaningful music that really catches the ears and hearts of whomever is
listening” ~ Nate Michaels
