Kahler tremelo systems were most popular in the 1980s, with users such as Steve Vai, Earl Slick, Jeff Loven, Adrian Belew and Jerry Peek and bands such as Judas Priest, Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe. Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King of Slayer still use Kahlers today, and
they swear by them.

Jeff's band Obsession--the heavy metal
sensation of the early 80s has secured a date for the long awaited reunion. The
August 5 date confirmed for the Cabooze will feature all 5 original band
members Brynn Arens, Greg Eidem, Todd McNurlin, Neal Sundet and Loven.
"Most people, including myself, will be excited to see the five of us on
stage together for the first time in over 25 years. I've waited a long time for
this one special night. It's going to be incredible!" says Jeff.
For the Obsession fans it is a dream come
true. The band will be performing 99% original material from their heaviest
years 1982-1983 and fans will be delighted with a full-on rock show. The show
will also be a chance for many who have heard the stories of the huge shows but
never got to see/hear what original metal was like in 1982 in Minneapolis to
finally experience it: Obsession promises an incredible show that will delight
their fans and newcomers alike.
Do not miss the Obsession concert friday
August 5 at the Cabooze.
InGroup Marketing & Entertainment will handle all aspects of Jeff's marketing and performances starting in 2011. However, InGroup has already begun turning out Jeff Loven calendars, posters and songbooks.
Jeff says, "The new promo materials look fantastic and I'm excited to move into a bit of a new direction--It's great to 'have people' again!"
InGroup Senior Business Consultant Kiko Doran says "When you see a guy singlehandedly walk into any situation-be it McDonalds 2009 Midwest Region Corporate Christmas Party or the 2010 Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association Trade Show Conference or even the bar down the corner and totally rock these folks to the point where they are rebooking dates into 2012--the potential is limitless. We are looking forward to helping Jeff realize his goals and more. Jeff's fans can look forward to a tribute cd in 2011, his original music cd early 2012 as well as a brand new website, television appearances and national press."
Most bands play the same 40 songs every night. The Jeff Loven show combines rock, pop, metal, country and hip hop and there is a request menu of over 300 songs that audience members can pick from. Also, because Jeff is an award-winning guitar player extraordinaire expect a few amp-busting guitar assaults ala SRV, GnR, AC/DC, Van Halen or Satriani along the way!!!
