Hard-driving blues rhythms and soul grooves fuel the blistering performance of D.C.-based soul blues band Vintage#18. After attending a performance, John Porter, WCVE declares, “Vintage#18 is a band you have to see live in order to appreciate their level of performance.”
Performing together since 2013, the band sharpened their sound and performance chops in clubs throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Creating quite the buzz.
Their sound reflects the band’s love of classic 60’s Soul and Blues.
The album Grit delivers soul and passion along with very personal songwriting from Kapsalis featuring the unique sound of Bill Holter on guitar (a.k.a. #18), while the groove is laid down by Alex Kuldell on drums and Mark Chandler on bass. Soulful vocals are delivered by Robbin Kapsalis.
Vintage#18 soon found themselves opening shows for The Nighthawks, Billy Price, Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials, Albert Cummings, Selwyn Birchwood, and Roomful Of Blues.
Blues In the South hit it on the head…”Although this outfit is undoubtedly a blues band, they have a distinctively individual sound.”
