Yesterday I told you about how Vintage Trouble would be appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night. Did you get a chance to see it? If not, let me fill you in on how cool their high energy performance was and just exactly what you missed out on.

Vintage Trouble On The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

Admittedly, seeing Vintage Trouble on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno was the first time that I had seen them  perform. Their set was crazy high energy and I found myself on the edge of my seat for fear that the lead singer might get twisted up in one of the band’s many microphone or instrument cords and tumble off of the stage. Thankfully, he did not, cause he’s apparently cool like that!

I reviewed their album The Bomb Shelter Sessions yesterday, so I want to be sure that you guys understand the coolness of their stage presence today. I was pleased that they performed Total Strangers – one of the many songs that was among my favorite on their new album! All of the band members were dressed up in vintage clothing. Even their equipment appeared to be vintage. My personal favorite outfit was that of the drummer. Looking like someone who had just stepped off of a western, the drummer looked seriously awesome!

I have been to probably hundreds of concerts and I have yet to see anyone bring that much energy to a live performance. Off hand, the closest I can come is Jake Owen. For a country act, he hopped around the stage quite a lot and I will never forget the excitement in the atmosphere. In my experience, most everyone else just walks around or stands almost in one spot all night {not that that is necessarily a bad thing}. But, sometimes you just want to have fun. If you are looking for a FULL performance with not only music in the spotlight {though they seriously bring it in that department, as well}, then Vintage Trouble that I think you will really dig.

Don’t forget to grab a copy of Vintage Trouble: The Bomb Shelter Sessions right now on Amazon.

  12. Let me start by saying that I am a music snob. A couple of months ago I went to see The Who play live near Chicago… and wouldn’t ya know that it was Vintage Trouble that opened for them. I had never heard of them… they were AMAZING. Just like you said, high energy and great sound, I loved them. I’ve been meaning to look them up since then so thanks for the reminder!

    • Oh that is so awesome! I love seeing an opening act, having no idea who they are, and thinking they are totally awesome!
