On the Porch with The Lavens: How Music Shaped a Family
A production by: AtticRep in collaboration with Tuppence Entertainment
Director: Roberto Prestigiacomo
Writers: Rachel Laven and Jacob Pursell
A new original and devised work by AtticRep in collaboration with Tuppence Entertainment, featuring San Antonio’s own Laven Family. The production tells the story of The Lavens - from the generation of Lavens that immigrated from Holland to their present day Laven family band. Learn how music shaped the Lavens as a family and as one of San Antonio’s most loved bands. The show will feature live performances of songs by Rachel, Niko, and Andreas Laven, and the Lavens will tell their stories up close and personal on their widely known “porch.”
Well known in Texas for their blend of Blues, Folk, and Country music, The Lavens are a family group made up of parents, Andreas and Jana, and their grown kids, Niko and Rachel Laven. The four have released three albums as a band between 2005-2007, while Niko and Rachel have since released solo albums of their own. Voted Best Female Vocals by the San Antonio Current (Rachel), and TMC’s Artist of the Year (The Lavens), and more recently Kerrville Newfolk Songwriting Competition Winner (Rachel), The Lavens are among San Antonio’s longest performing, and most loved bands.
