LVanHart Artist Productions: LVanHart is a tribute to my late uncle, Garry Van Dezendorf, who passed away in 1992. The 'Van' had been dropped from the family name generations ago; he legally changed his to the original version just prior to his passing. L...Hart is yours truly. Artist includes the artists the company represents, and differentiates us from being just a production company, as we have always been primarily an artist management. Productions is about the live and recorded music the company has produced since 1998.

LVanHart is proud to announce the addition of Joe McCarthy and his Grammy winning ensemble Afro Bop Alliance. We will be helping Joe to bring his expertise to colleges and universities around the globe, as well as seeing ABA more on the stage. The band's most recent recording, Angel Eyes, on the Zoho label, is "Known for their percolating percussion as well as dipping into straight ahead jazz, this Washington D.C. based octet lets the rumba rumble, the cha-cha churn and the samba simmer..." (All About Jazz)

"From advice on how to secure professional representation in the music industry to how to book tours, Laura has helped me save hundreds of hours of labor by providing me with advice that helped focus my efforts and achieve positive results." -Matthew Finck, Guitarist
