Vintage Trouble : Take The Shot!!!

Vintage Trouble never disappoint.

They have spent the last week in the studio non-stop recording their second album, which judging by the new ones they have been playing live, should be a soul-stirring collection of great songs. Right after the set tonight, the guys from VT packed up and headed back to the studio to go 'til the break of dawn.

Here's the photographic proof of last night's rip-roaring son-of-a-gun performance! The band members are Nalle Colt-guitars, Richard Danielson-drums, Rick Barrio Dill-bass/vocals, Charlie Brumbly-vocals/harmonica/tambourine and of course the amazing frontman Ty Taylor tearing it up on vocals!!

Vintage Trouble does this every Tuesday at Harvelle's.
If you haven't had trouble in your life, get some!!!
I come from Vintage Trouble
Look out if I’m the one you found
I’ll pop your bubble
With my live wire, straight shooting dirty mouth...

The UltraLove Definition :
LOVE To The Extreme

What is Ultralove?
Let's break it down!
We all know what LOVE is!
There's many kinds of love.
So many, that I could write a daily blog about love and all the ways love manifests itself. Poems, songs, books, sculptures, paintings, relationships - so many are about love! LOVE LOVE LOVE! It's pretty well covered.
So let's move on to "ULTRA"!
The dictionary definition:
ultra- |ˈəltrə|
1 beyond; on the other side of 2 extreme; to an extreme degree

Ultralove is a band that plays at Harvelle's at the beginning of every week. Their nu-skool alt-R&B keeps it fresh enough to bring people out on a Monday night; the infectious hooks and silk smooth harmonies always leave their songs in my head long after the music has ended.

Tonight, triple threat Jon Swift (singing/ rapping/ keys) took 64 bars to plead his case to the responsive crowd. Swift is part of House Of Vibe/ Westside Tribe. He performs at Harvelle's every Wednesday!

Right before the end of the last song none other than Toledo Diamond of The Toledo Show took the stage for a smoke and an extended verse! Toledo brings you into his rough & tumble world from the first note out of his mouth. "T" always plays it cool!

Ultralove plays every Monday night.
