AR) Rock/JamVintage Pistol resembles the sound of today's Marcus King and Gary Clark Jr., while sticking true to that of yesterdays Allman Brothers Band and Van Morrison. Comprised of a heavy rhythm section, encompassing guitar work and well crafted songwriting, Vintage Pistol is a tight but explorative live performance. The band has supported on multiple occasions: Devon Allman, Andy Frasco & The U.N., Tyler Childers, Big Something, CBDB, Wild Adriatic, MONTU, Consider The Source, Marc Broussard, Eric Lindell, Kalu & The Electric Joint, and plenty more! The Trongone Band Hailing from Richmond, VA, The Trongone Band is touring in support of their 2017 debut album,“Keys to the House”, released on Harmonized Records. With a sound that Paste Magazine likensto the “freak-outs of My Morning Jacket with the Muscle Shoals-inspired Leslie speakers andThe Band’s narrative storytelling”, The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impacton the Southern Rock ‘n’ Soul and Americana scenes.Formed by brothers Andrew and Johnny Trongone with father John Sr on bass, The TrongoneBand (tron-GO-knee) has grown from a family affair to a full on touring machine with theaddition of keyboardist Ben “Wolfe” White and bassist Chip Hale. In the words of Live for LiveMusic, “the quartet has come together to create an old-school and all-in-the-family soundreminiscent of The Allman Brothers while still keeping it fresh with their cutting edge originalcompositions that also infuse funk and blues into the mix.”Keeping with the homegrown vibe, the band nestled into the woods outside of RVA, tappinginto Montrose Recording’s Flickinger console, one of only seven remaining in the world. Knownas the console that revolutionized the recording industry in the 60s & 70s, the Flickingerprovided the warm sounds that turned into “Keys to the House” and brought to life whatMusicFestNews described as “imagery of boxcar drifters, rolling hills and dirt roads that areeasy to close your eyes and get lost in”.Summer and Fall of 2017 saw The Trongone Band taking “Keys to the House” on the road whiletouring in support of stalwarts including Umphrey’s McGee, Reckless Kelly, American Aquariumand Cris Jacobs. Having graced the stages of Virginia’s Roosterwalk and FloydFest, Tennessee’sRiverbend Music Festival, The Allman Brothers’ Peach Festival in Pennsylvania, Atlanta’sSweetwater 420 Fest and Macon’s “Big House Presents Summer Jam”, the band is primed for abusy 2018 festival season and their first full European Tour. This four-piece ensemble may notall be related, but with a chemistry so emphatically discernible, it's fair to call them brothers.
