Bono, or Michael Schmidt? Take one look. What more can you say? Then, take a listen and you’re left speechless at the tones, range, and sheer stage presence that is second only to the man himself. Michael Schmidt provides even the die-hard U2 fans with honest, authentic performances from the early days of “Boy” all the way through U2’s latest album “Songs of Innocence”. Come see, listen, and judge for yourself!
Eddie Steklasa originally formed U2 by UV as nothing more than a huge U2 / Edge fan wanting to do the music justice. From The Edge’s chiming notes and complex tones, Eddie has managed to deliver live what most guitarists call the impossible. The Edge is known for developing his own sound entirely and reinventing the guitar soundscape. Eddie brings that unmistakeable U2 sound to every live UV show coupled with the look and performance!
Jeff Clemens learned to drum to the beat of “Sunday Bloody Sunday.” He even bought an extra drum in college to emulate Larry Mullen Jr.’s unique setup and style.
Since then, Clemens has toured all over the eastern United States, opening for bands as varied as Live, Cracker, Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, Foreigner, Everclear and Sugar Ray. He’s played in front of tens of thousands at shows like XFest, Atlanta’s Music Midtown, Birmingham’s City Stages and West Palm’s SunFest.
Away from music, he has worked as a newspaper reporter, entertainment critic, and served as the Mayor of City of Lake Worth, Florida from 2007-09. After finishing one term in Florida House of Representatives, he was elected to the Florida Senate in the fall 2012.
Keith joined U2 by UV in 2014. Keith has amassed an impressive resume having played venues such as the House of Blues, The Whiskey A Go-Go, CBGB’s, and has toured with several national recording artists such as Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Lynch Mob, Nuno Bettencourt. He’s a huge fan of U2 and does Adam Clayton justice to round out the rhythm section. He also plays drums as the legendary John Bonham in the Led Zeppelin tribute Led Hed based in Florida.
