REVIEW: Vintage Trouble Puts On a Big Show at The Fillmore


Photo By: Jill Gerstenberger

Vintage Trouble put on a kickass rock ‘n’ roll show at The Fillmore on a November Thursday night. Formed in Los Angeles in 2010, the band combines rhythm and blues, hard rock, and soul in a style reminiscent of early 50s and 60s bands like The Rolling Stones, Otis Redding and The Yardbirds. Ty Taylor is a fantastic front man resembling a modern-day James Brown who stagedives. Under the management of the legendary Doc McGhee, the band toured outside of the U.S. and decided to grow their fanbase in Europe where they were able to open for such renowned acts on tour as Brian May, Bon Jovi, The Who, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, and Willie Nelson. The band has put out three studio albums and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan O’Brian, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and has played large festivals like Glastonberry, Bonnaroo and Coachella. These guys aren’t getting these big opportunities because they’re some flash in the pan. They’re a really talented group of musicians with incredible showmanship to boot.

The band didn’t waste any time getting the crowd riled up on this chilly San Francisco evening. After a brief opening band huddle onstage, Taylor had the crowd jumping up and down in unison, soul clapping and singing along to “Strike Your Light,” all while he was making rock star poses and doing a handstand on the drum riser. By the end of the second song, “Blues Hand Me Down,” he’d already hopped offstage and gone deep in to the crowd and emerged back onstage with a cute little fluffy white dog in his arms. We never figured out where the dog came from but he held on to it and sang while we all wondered why there was a dog at the show. He passed the dog offstage to a stagehand and encouraged people to put their cellphones down and dance.

REVIEW: Vintage Trouble closes out Roots Festival with memorable performance

Vintage Trouble absolutely owned the stage, closing out the 28th annual Roots Festival to the delight of thousands Saturday evening.

Ty Taylor even jumped from the stage and onto the fence, standing up high to look out over the crowd.

It was one of the most rocking sets in the history of the festival.

Vintage Trouble had everyone up front waving their arms and dancing the night away on the beautiful Paola Park Square.

The festival began in 1989 as a potluck barbecue at Wallace Park with a reunion of several families in Paola. It grew into a reunion for the entire town.
