Vintage Trouble All Smiles in Bristol

Vintage Trouble All Smiles in Bristol

It’s been just five years since Vintage Trouble formed and they now tour with the likes of Paloma Faith and AC/DC. Their soulful blues rock is so pleasing on the ear I am amazed they are not more of a household name by now but touring with the big acts has given them quite a fan base. They hand picked British upstarts and rapidly rising blues rockers, Slydigs.

These guys have been receiving rave reviews from around the UK as they set out to establish themselves.

As they hit the stage I was instantly surprised at how good they sounded and I could understand the reason behind their sudden rise. Their sound reminded me a little of The Quireboys as well as their slightly glam rock look. They only had a short set but I enjoyed every minute of it and as I looked around the venue it looked as if everyone else was also enjoying it. The venue wasn’t packed at this time as the metal detectors at the door had obviously slowed things down but by the time they were a couple of songs in the venue was packed. Slydigs’ music set the tone for the night and as their set came to an end I was curious to know how Vintage Trouble could raise the bar higher than Slydigs had.

After a short break I was about to find out as Vintage Trouble walked onto the Bristol stage. From the off it was evident how much these guys enjoyed performing and although they were not as rocky as Slydigs they seemed to have a much fuller sound. As frontman Ty Taylor danced and strutted around the stage his immense stage presence was there for all to see.

To top this he took several trips into the crowd and people’s mobile phones instantly came out to capture the moment that they stood next to the singer in the crowd. Nearer the end of the gig he even flung himself onto the crowd and after crowd surfing around the whole of the bottom tier of the venue he returned to the stage. A little out of breath after his excursions he continued and within seconds was dancing around the stage again.

The songs continued and seemed to get a little more rocky until obligatory ballad started. Even this didn’t slow frontman Ty as he got the crowd waving from side to side. This was followed by a sing along before the band started up what was to be their final set of the night. At the end of this song it wasn’t just Ty who made his way into the crowd as he was followed by his bandmates. As they worked their way through the crowd they were patted on their backs as they shook hands with the crowd. After a few minutes they reappeared near the venue’s entrance and made their way to the merchandise stand where they chatted with fans whilst signing autographs and posing for photos.

As I joined the many overexcited fans heading out of the venue into the pouring rain I was glad I had stayed for the whole set as I had been thinking about leaving early to avoid the rush. I still can’t believe how much energy Ty had and what a performance he put on but I also look forward to catching up on with him and his band again next time they visit the UK.
