Vintage Trouble

When vocalist Ty Taylor and guitarist Nalle Colt came together to form Vintage Trouble, they clearly had in mind a band with roots deep in the rock 'n' roll tradition. Rounding out the band with bassist Rick Barrio Dill and drummer Richard Danielson, a powerhouse quartet was born. Combining elements of the blues, soul and early rock 'n' roll, the band take to the stage with a wild abandon that revs up even the most sedate audience leaving them no choice but to grab on tight and enjoy the ride.

In 2012, Vintage Trouble was handpicked by Woodstock veterans The Who to open the North American leg of their first tour in four years. Their album, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, is one of the strongest debut records from a new band in years. It is a sweet slice of bombastic plastic that makes it clear this is a band to be taken seriously. With their devoted following of die-hard fans (affectionately known as "Troublemakers"), would Vintage Trouble fit in on the Woodstock stage? Absolutely!

And if you have any doubt, just check out the video of the band performing "Hand Me Down Blues" on the Late Show with David Letterman below...
