UK’s Virgil and the Accelerators are an impressive high-energy blues rock power trio with influences that include Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.
For example, a little Bonamassa…
…a little Stevie Ray,
…and a little Hendrix.
VATA will release their 1st full lenght CD in September of this year. You can listen to Track #1, “Working Man” on their website here. It’s worth a listen. If the rest of the record is anything like this track, it’s destined to be a favorite for folks like me who miss the early days of Joe Bonamassa. Hard to believe the average age of this band is just a touch under 19 (18, 17 and 21). Check ’em out!
Some times the Working Man track on VATA’s website doesn’t load up right away. It’s well worth your time to mess aroud with it until it does…trust me!
