Vintage Trouble : Black & White

Their sound is a blend of rock 'n' roll and soul, old and new, sweaty as hell with deep pockets full of fresh grooves, an oxymoron, a yin-yang; black and white like the checkered dance floor of Harvelle's.
I got the opportunity to sit with the guys in the band and get to know 'em a bit. Look for highlights from our conversation in an upcoming blog entry! I decided to shoot 'em in black and white tonight.

Coming Up: Getting to know the guys from Vintage Trouble; Watch for it in this blog. In the meantime check 'em out live on Tuesday nights — but only through the end of September.
Their debut album "The Bomb Shelter Sessions" is available on iTunes.

Kirk Fletcher : The Bridge Is Over

Guitarist Kirk Fletcher has been playing at Harvelle's every Monday night for a longtime. Tonight that residency ends. The new jack bluesman with the black Vans skateboard shoes won't be gracing the stage at Harvelle's on the regular any longer. I'm sure we'll see him around the club and I'm pretty sure he's playing one night in Sept. But Mondays are done.

Tonight was a night full of surprises. Backing Kirk was Gary Fegason on drums, Bobby Tsukamoto on bass (pictured above and below)and Josh Sklair on guitar (also above and below Bobby's pic).

This would have been enough. The 4 of them together were supersonic and mighty.

Sitting in were a bakers half-dozen of guests including funky sexy cool singer Lisa Foreman (above) and Page-esque guitarist John Nevolo (below).

The second set opened with singer Sir Harry Bowen (photo below) who took over the night on vocals.

Nothing excited tonights room full o' blues however like the onstage appearance of guitar genius Joe Bonamassa (not pictured).

You could literally feel the room a-twittering and updating their facebook status with the news of what they were watching.

Kirk - I've spent many a night at Harvelle's watching you play the hell out that axe like nobody's business. Thank you.
