The Vespertines are a new voice screaming out of the wilderness. The band's genre-bending blend of psychedelic dub reggae and punk-rock jazz demands any audience's full attention and never disappoints. These three young men from Long Beach, California are out to make the world a better place for anyone with an ear for originality and a need to hear a new and exciting sound. With Alex Kater's feverish, Hendrix-fueled guitar, Chris Walker's explosive drumming, and Kyle Cavaness's monstrous bass sound, The Vespertines are an instrumental powerhouse that is not to be trifled with. And when singer Vanessa Acosta steps to the mic to add her soulful vocals and evocative trumpet, the band reaches levels of euphoria your local garage band can't even comprehend.
