Guitarist/songwriter BRAD VICKERS learned on the job playing, recording, and touring with America’s blues and roots masters: Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Rogers, Hubert Sumlin, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Odetta, Sleepy LaBeef, and Rosco Gordon—to name only a few. Brad cut his teeth backing up these elder statesmen. He had the good fortune to play on Pinetop Perkins’ Grammy-nominated discs, “Born in the Delta” (Telarc), and “Ladies’ Man” (MC Records) and on ‘Pinetop Perkins & Jimmy Rogers, Genuine Blues Legends’ (Elrob), whichg was up for a 2017 Blues Music Award. Now his own group, The Vestapolitans, offers a good-time, crowd-pleasing mix of Blues and great American Roots ‘n’ Roll. Touring with their great, new CD, performances will include the 2020 Blues Bash at the Ranch Festival. Some past performance highlights are Bucks County Blues Picnic, Pennsylvania Blues Festival, Easton, PA Garlic Festival, and headlining the 2017 Thouars, France Blues Festival. Their six great CDs have met with terrific reviews (Downbeat gives them ****½ stars), “Best Of” lists, and great radio play. But most important, audiences love them!
