HUGE shout out to everyone who came to support us at Stage AE last night! We had an incredible, stanky time opening up for Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes, one of my all-time favorite bands. They are too hot to trot.

Thanks to Tommy V Photography for shooting some awesome pics. A few show announcements will be coming shortly, so stay tuned!

*Performance tip: when you forget your dress at home, you can always wear your yoga shorts you just so happened to have packed in your bag.

StageAE

We are honored to be able to open up for Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes at The Club @ Stage AE on Thursday, June 26. Their sound was highly influential on our EP and sharing the stage with them will be quite a trip. Tickets can be bought in advance from one of the Vamps for $15. The doors open at 7, so get there early to avoid the Pirates game traffic!

Thanks to everyone who came out this past Saturday for our gig at Hambone’s! We haven’t played in quite some time and it felt damn good. Hopefully we’ll be lining another slot up soon, but until then, keep in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter!

We had a great rehearsal this past weekend for our gig this Saturday night at Hambone’s! We’ve got a new trumpet player ready to do his thang, and we’ve even got a new song in our vault that we’ll be debuting with Chelsey on the geetar.

So come join us along with The Soul Miners and Jude Benedict at Hambone’s this Saturday, May 3. Tunes start at 9. Be prepared to get down and dirty.

The Vamps will be playing our first full band show since our EP release party in December at Hambone’s on Saturday, May 3! Joining us will be Pittsburgh’s own Jude Benedict (of Jude Benedict & The Last Drop) and Morgantown’s Motown troupe The Soul Miners! This is bound to be a wild, sweaty night, so bring your dancing shoes and come ready to shake it down 😉

Thanks to everyone who came out to our Ava Lounge gig last Saturday! We had a blast, and what a packed house! Props to Arianna from Velvet Heat for filling in at the last minute for our set and thanks to Tommy V Photography for shooting a few pics!

Mark your calendars for May 3- the Vamps will be doing our first full band set since our release party back in December! This time, we’re taking over Hambone’s in Lawrenceville with The Soul Miners and Jude Benedict!

AvaHey all! We’ve retreated a bit during this harsh winter but we are returning soon! We are planning a chilled-out, laid-back trio set of sorts with our good friends Velvet Heat at the new AVA Lounge in North Oakland for Saturday, April 5. Expect our usual soul and blues vibes along with Velvet Heat’s jazz fusion!

Vince and I will be working on some new tunes over the next month or two, so be ready for some fresh material! The girls of Velvet Heat are also starting to work on their debut EP so there will be lots of positive, bright sounds that night!

So mark your calendars, buy your favorite bottle of bubbly (the event is BYOB!) and come with open ears and hearts 🙂
