A Feel-good Mix of Blues, Jump, Rags, and American Roots 'n' Roll

BRAD VICKERS & HIS VESTAPOLITANS

Brad learned on the job playing, touring, and recording with America’s blues and roots masters: Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, and Odetta—to name just a few. They taught him well. Besides learning the ropes of playing, survival on the road...and life, he even picked up a few of their recipes along the way!

Now his own group, The Vestapolitans, offers a good-time mix of originals and covers spanning blues, jump, ragtime, and more great American roots ’n’ roll. A new CD, Twice As Nice, joins their 5 other recordings.

All have met with terrific reviews and radio play. Best of all, audiences love them!

The band has toured North America performing at venues and festivals.

The band can perform for you as a 4 piece or in a Duo setting.
