Who's Vintage Trouble you ask? One of the most exciting up and coming rock in roll bands based outta the 50s/60s blues energy and 70s soul you'll ever hear or see! Lead singer Ty Taylor is one of the greatest frontman I've ever seen in my 38 years of concert going!
Onstage he's a dancing, jumping acrobatic energy ball that will go from onstage to offstage to the rafters and crowd surfing in seconds. With the energy of those 50s/60s/70s blues rock performers like James Brown, Little Richard, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Joe Tex etc. and a touch more recently with performers like Corey Glover (Living Colour), Bruno Mars yet with charisma all within his own style! I remember seeing Vintage Trouble on The Late Show with David Letterman and had my mind blown! 
 Then a second time on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that sealed my fan fate. 
 I grew up on that 60s/early 70s soul so I know the real deal when I see it and Ty Taylor is the man! Backed by his amazing bandmates of Nalle Colt (guitar), Rick Barrio Dill (bass) and Richard Danielson (drums) Vintage Trouble are one of those rare bands you see and instantly drawn in liking. Musicians connected at the hip together as one. Tour pianist/keyboardist Brian London was a great addition too! 
Managed by legendary manager Doc McGhee (Kiss, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi etc.), Vintage Trouble have had some awesome open slot tours with the likes of The Who and AC/DC for the big arena/stadium exposure, but it's their own headline shows in the smaller confined clubs that this band is best seen in like they were at Neumos. Their 14 song setlist went through the best of their 2 full-length albums The Bomb Shelter Sessions (2011) & 1 Hopeful Rd. (2015). Favorites were "Blues Hand Me Down", the swampy rocker "Run Like The River", the straight ahead rocking "Total Strangers" and the instrumental jam (Ty needed a little break in the set) of "Get It". Overall for the first time seeing them live, Vintage Trouble killed it! I don't think they've played Seattle since Bumbershoot back in 2013 and I missed that so it was great to see them in town up from Los Angeles! Love to see them do a tour with our very own Walking Papers. Check 'em out!
