On October 15 at the House of Blues in Boston Massachusetts, Vintage Trouble was the opening act for Joss Stone. Generally speaking, the opening act gets the crowd amped for the headliner, but doesn’t necessarily leave any jaws dropped. A few weeks since the show have gone by and there is no doubt in my mind that there are still some jaws on the floor after Vintage Trouble’s performance. It was as if the concert had two headliners for one show.
The energy on stage was like no other. Lead singer Ty Taylor wowed with vocals reminiscent of Sam Cooke and a stage presence like the great James Brown. Guitarist Nalle Colt, drummer Richard Danielson, and bassist Rick Barrio Dill had a chemistry and presence that backed Ty and added an energizing element to the performance.
The crowd was dancing and singing along to songs like “Blues Hand Me Downs” and “Love With Me” while other songs, such as “Nobody Told Me” were touching and memorable performances.
There is no doubt that this band will be headlining a tour of their own in no time. Vintage Trouble live is a sight to be seen. Keep your eyes out!
