32 - The Vegabonds

Genre: Rock, Southern Rock, Rock'n Roll, Jam, Freakjams
Location: Auburn, AL
Website: www.myspace.com/vegabonds

Bio: These lawless Brigands take the stage with the sole intent of rocking the venue to its foundations. Some may call them Rogues, Pirates or Vagabonds but they roll together solid and true as the Vegabonds! This band is becoming one of the most popular bands rockin' the scene here in the southeast. Hitting the road later this April they'll be opening for legendary southern rocker Greg Allman from a little known band you probably don't know about called the Allman Brothers. Back to these Vegabonds that slam Jaegerbombs and Vegas Bombs before dropping Megaton Bombs on the masses. I got a chance to jam with this power rock explosion last night at the Sky Bar and the crowd was chomping at the bit. The lovely ladies in the audience knew all the songs word for word and their various boyfriends had to play second fiddle to the tempestuous vocal stylings of their lead singer Daniel "Hacksaw" Allen.

In addition to maintaining a grueling touring schedule, the band has just released their debut album, Dear Revolution to widespread critical acclaim. The Vegabond's sound is a combination of classic rock and southern rock with the new school rock and jam band rock. If you like rock get ready to rock the funk out! When enjoying their album from start to finish you may be reminded of bands such as: The Allman Brothers, The Drive-By Truckers, Pink Floyd, Phish, Widespread Panic, The Kings of Leon, Joe Walsh, U2, Counting Crows, The Black Crowes, The Crow and Pantera. Okay maybe not the last two because one's a movie and one's Pantera, but you catch my drift? The Vegabond pound the ear-pussies on the reg with immaculate slide guitar work, groovin keys, nasty solos, bombastic drums and tight bass work. They play mostly down here in God's country i.e. the Southeastern section of the continental U.S. however they are planning to make an extensive tour of Thailand this summer. They might not look it all six members are half Thai. Whether you see them down the street or overseas, check out the Vegabonds for a super crunk party jam time experience sure to last for eons.
