Wakarusa’s Music Monday – Vintage Trouble

Vintage Trouble is a sensational, soulful four-man band whose very essence screams out loud of the late 1950's to 1960's. Turned on by and tuned into the evolutionary period in music and life when there was a razor thin line between Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, the band reconnects us all to one universal vibration. Their modern day classics transport the mind, spirit and body back to a sweaty, swinging, heart-thumping speakeasy. Their live shows feel like a sweet southern down-home revival mixed with a gritty, downtown edge. Inspirationally, Otis Redding, Chuck Berry and Ike and Tina Turner can all be felt in woven clothe that tailor-suit the band like honey to the bee. When the buzz tells you they're near, get to them...and be prepared to be moved.

Wakarusa’s Music Monday brought to you by Vintage Trouble! Members: Ty Taylor – Vocals, Nalle Colt – Guitar, Rick Barrio Dill – Bass, Richard Danielson – Drums Origin: Los Angeles, CA Genres: Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Rock, Blues Albums: The Bomb Shelter Sessions Influences: Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, Ike and Tina Tuener, Jimi Hendrix, Sam… Read More »
