Vintage Trouble / Press

““The first time I saw Vintage Trouble on stage, I knew before they had finished the first song that I was going to manage them. Acts like VT are why I am still in this business…pure music straight from the soul …you can’t teach acts that shit …like going full circle…I started off managing James Brown and this isn’t retro it’s the future….great live music…it’s what puts bums on seats.””

“It’s about time the world was woken up from its over-produced music induced coma that bombards the airwaves today, and if there’s any band that has the power to do that, it’s these guys. Nevermind the sky: the universe’s the limit for Vintage Trouble.”

“It's almost impossible to comprehend that the band have been together for only 10 months; their music, image and form is so tight, one could easily believe they had been going strong for a much longer time period. ”

“BORN TO DO IT. The sheer brilliance of a rhythm section that knows no end to shaking your money-maker, a guitarist that has been under the radar for so long that every A&R guy in the world should be ashamed of their ability at talent scouting, and a vocalist who brings this melting pot together with the most outstanding vocal duality I've heard in decades.”

“What they got was a masterclass in Vintage Blues Rock! It was like James Brown all over again! By the 2nd song everybody was dancing and really enjoying themselves.”

“McGhee - who has had an illustrious career which has also included managing Hootie & The Blowfish, Skid Row, Scorpions, Guns N’ Roses and Ted Nugent – is currently in the UK holding label meetings on the band he took on eight months ago. He said, “It’s such a crazy thing. You can’t not have fun with that show. It’s retro but so fresh, his voice is amazing and the band is as good as it gets. It’s going to be great.””

“Singer Ty Taylor calls Vintage Trouble’s music “primitive soul.” He says: “It’s raw, naked and hard-hitting – soul music with the balls of late ’60s/early ’70s rock ‘n’ roll.” The name Vintage Trouble is inspired by Taylor’s late father. “My dad lived the life of a bluesman,” the singer recalls. “He was wild.” The band formed just one year ago, on February 25, 2010. Key influences include Otis Redding, James Brown and The Rolling Stones. Legendary band manager Doc McGhee (Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, KISS, Guns N’ Roses) states “The first time I saw Vintage Trouble on stage, I knew before they had finished the first song that I was going to manage them. Acts like VT are why I am still in this business…pure music straight from the soul …you can’t teach acts that shit …like going full circle…I started off managing James Brown and this isn’t retro it’s the future….great live music…it’s what puts bums on seats.” The band are also booked”

“Vintage Trouble Have Arrived! By Eddie Sharkey 9. February 2011 I first heard about this LA based Rock/Blues band a few weeks ago. Legendary Manager Doc McGhee (Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, KISS, Guns N' Roses) said "The first time I saw Vintage Trouble on stage, I knew before they had finished the first song that I was going to manage them." Quite a statement i think you'll agree! So I checked out their album and absolutely LOVED it! Ty Taylor's voice is like a combination of Otis Redding and James Brown. Song after song Vintage Trouble proved that they are a serious rock/blues band who are very passionate about music. By the point everybody was whooping and clapping and wanting more but as the song ended, one by one Vintage Trouble left the stage. But more importantly I feel they left a room full of people who came to the show not as fans of the band and left as new fans. Can't recommend these guys enough. Great album Incredible live show.”

“VINTAGE TROUBLE @ The Gibson Rooms (Showcase) London - 8th February 2011 Vintage Trouble is a four piece taking us all the way back to the 50s-60s with their intense blend of soul and blues. A singer with nothing to envy to Marvin Gaye, an incendiary guitar sound and a tight, relentless rhythm section: a recipe for pure magic. Like a burgundy velvet dress, Vintage Trouble's sound is rich, sensual, caressing, softly changing shade from every angle. This is quite simply all that I’ve been looking for. Are Vintage Trouble going to be the next big thing? If they’re not, something is seriously wrong in this industry. I’ve seen quite a series of more or less pathetic comeback attempts: labels trying to bring back bands, bands trying to bring back genres, genres trying to bring back bands and labels. Tonight, I salute the band that is going to bring back Music”

“A mix of hyped-up vintage Rolling Stones with a benzedrine-d Otis Redding on vocals!! They're smooth as silk and hard as nails.”

“In a time when music is relative and talent suspect, the unbridled power and passion that is unleashed to all those present is unmatched. From the first note to the last you will be transported to a time when music consumed body, soul and spirit. And yes, you will walk away having "felt" Vintage Trouble-anxiously awaiting more...........”

Theresa Figueroa - The Daily News

“Vintage Trouble have a real "veni vidi vici" approach and the packed house was testament to that!! Heavily populated by pretty young girls, the crowd sang along with wild abandon, shook their asses on the dance floor and screamed and shouted in response to everything that sharp-dressed lead singer Ty Taylor put out there. ”

“The passion and the freedom i feel whenever i get to experience their music is pure bliss! Vintage Trouble is my favorite addiction. :-)”

Tawny Dolley - Inside TD

“To be in room which is encapsulated by visionary music makes me giddy that I have been let in on a Secret!!The soul, the heart, and the complete depth of this music is destined for the world to see!! Physically we wanted to leave cuz it was late but MENTALLY we kept saying one more song!! We couldn't leave!! Vintage Trouble is completely intoxicating!! And we are proud to be hooked!!”

Sonia Carrasco - My Muse

“It was the best sex I"ve ever had because the only place it touched me was my soul. And it touched me deeply. So I have gone back again and again ... Ty Taylor is a lightening bolt and Vintage Trouble is the storm that follows. Nalle Colt's guitar chops rival the best I've ever heard while Rick Barrio DIll and Rich Danielson set a groove that penetrates deep into my heart. After they’re gone, you’re left drenched, exhilarated and feeling like everything that’s been worrying you has been washed away...”
