Uptempo, exciting, and fun. Get up out of your seat and onto the dance floor! Jump Blues, shuffles, guitar boogies, and early Rock 'n' Roll with an emphasis on the Roll. Little dabs of Jazz and Western Swing for seasoning.
Professional musicians who show up on time, dress sharp, and conduct themselves professionally on the gig. When you hire us your musical concerns are taken care of.
JJ Vicars is a walking blues rock encyclopedia, paying homage to Johnny Winter, Alvin Lee, and Rory Gallagher, but preserving an authentic Texas bred individuality that gives him a voice all his own. Elements of country, rockabilly, and swing meld in tunes like "What Do I Tell My Heart" and his version of "Outskirts of Town". His performances are always fun, full of energy, and he really knows how to play a room and get the right volume and timing of songs! He and his band are outstanding for parties and weddings, as well as just an exciting night out on the town. As a venue owner, I've had the pleasure of booking him as a solo act or a group and though you get to hear more of his admirable tone and guitar work when playing with the full band, he has no problem holding his own and entertaining audiences for hours at a time with just an acoustic guitar and his huge repertoire of classics and originals. Highly Recommended!
I can not say enough about this band. They were very professional and polite. Set up and tear down was very quick. Everyone at the party loved their music ! Each member brought their A game ! So entertaining ! We will be following them in the future to hear more from them ! Could have listened to them play all night ! Thanks guys for a fantastic party !
Response from J.J. Vicars & The Desiatos:
Thank you for the kind words, Diana. It was a pleasure playing for your husband's birthday party. Glad that he and everyone enjoyed it.
We've booked JJ for a variety of events, knowing that he brings a solid performance to the stage that's sure to please a crowd. He can easily turn it up or down to fit the mood or occasion, but our guests love it most when he's letting the Rock roll straight off the cuff.
Response from J.J. Vicars & The Desiatos:
Thank you, Ryan. Always a pleasure playing at George's, both the acoustic gigs and the trio gigs. Your locally sourced, grass-fed beef makes for the best burgers around. I've never left hungry!
