Dance Originality on rotation on MTVu!
V05 represents the hopes and aspirations of all Americans and believes that dancing should be an essential part of everyone's revolution. The nine-piece band from Madison, Wisconsin, is known for its theatrical sensibility, outrageous costumes, and epic-length dance parties. They play a blend of 70s funk and disco covers with their quirky and catchy originals.
The band includes two famous playwrights, a brave firefighter, a renewable energy guru, a wind-power engineer, a best-selling ornithologist and engineer, a wise doctor, and two celebrated actresses.
This year marks VO5's 10th Anniversary. Yes, ten years of energetic 3-4 hour dance parties! We've played over 300 large gigs (many outdoor festivals) and feel we've paid our musical dues by also having performed at dozens of oddball shows such as the Wisconsin Realtors "Stayin' Alive (During the Recession)" convention and the Gilman Cheese Corporation celebration. We've opened for ABBAMANIA and we've even performed as an ABBA cover band. Plus how many bands can say they got their US Senator dancing at a gay-rights parade? We're hoping all our hard work and experience has paid off and you enjoy listening to our original music.
“V05 is hardly in need of publicity, particularly in the summer when it draws thousands of fans in dance mode to all the marquee local festivals.” WSJ
