The Vegabonds

The Alabama-born, Tennessee-bred Southern rock band The Vegabonds visit Buena Vista for a 9 p.m., show Friday, July 19.

The Vegabonds kicked off 2019 with the release of their fifth album (and first for Blue Élan Records) entitled “V.” Produced by Tom Tapley (Blackberry Smoke, Sugarland, Mastodon) “V” audibly illustrates the band’s unconventional yet contagious brand of Southern rock and highlights the best of The Vegabonds’ unique musicianship, vocals, lyrics and sound.

“V” crosses boundaries of multiple music genres. These vibrant songs travel from sad to soulful; gritty to glorious. It’s a timeless American album in the sense it deals with eerie matters working people endure and captures their salvation in a song.

Vocalist Daniel Allen recently revealed, “I hope fans hear stories in the album. We are in a very unique time in history, and this album touches on the struggle of every day folks doing their best to navigate love, work, beliefs and the ever-changing politics that flood our lives daily.”

The Vegabonds got their start in Alabama in 2009 by playing the college circuit across the Southeastern United States.

Their popularity quickly burgeoned to the point where they found their fans singing along word-for-word to their first hits like “Georgia Fire” and “Shaky Hands.”

From Ole Miss to South Carolina, students were buzzing about The Vegabonds’ authentic sound and their seemingly effortless ability to bring the house down.

Through pure word of mouth, the group’s fan base rapidly grew, and the guys learned they had something distinctive with their eclectic mix of Southern Rock, Country, and earnest songwriting.

Their DIY ethic delivered three full-length albums and an EP before partnering with Blue Élan Records for their current release.
