LEICESTER BANGS, UK
“Perfectly captures the spirit of early rock instrumentals, channeling Duane Eddy, the Ventures and Booker T. and the MGs, and they’re just as much fun as those old gems, with lots of burning guitar and sax breaks.”—George Kopp ELMORE MAGAZINE Review Blog US
“The Vestapolitans, have the amazing ability to carry on the traditions and sounds of an older style of music without their efforts ever sounding pre-planned or forced. Playing this music just comes naturally to them. Give a big shout out to producer Dave Gross and V.D. King for the job they did mixing this album. Every instrument is represented so wonderfully, and nothing is masked by someone else's playing—It's truly impressive work. I have to take time to mention...Don't Take My Cadillac...it is without question my favorite tune on this record, and that's saying something, ?because these songs are all phenomenal. "Don't Take My Cadillac" is the perfect storm of songwriting, arranging and performance, crafting what would have become a timeless smash hit had it been released in the height of the Chess era. This song is an instant classic! Standout Tracks: All of them! Personal favorites include "Don't Take My Cadillac," "Low Down Dirty Shame," "Without Moolah," and "In My Dream" “-Johnny Full-time, FULL-TIME BLUES RADIO
“This is a very fine, good-timing, and extremely entertaining set. As I said the last time I reviewed one of Brad’s albums – more please!”-Norman Darwen, BLUES & RHYTHM, UK
“I'm transported indeed to a romantic and uniquely American road trip. There's no need for hurry---we done forgot where it was we were going anyhow! But oh the sights along the way!

That's the takeaway for me now playing the Vestapolitans as sonic wallpaper in my shop right now...I'm “THERE!!” "-Dale Thomas Rates in BLUES 411 US
“Just plain, enjoyable music! A varied and enjoyable CD. The use of the horn section reminds you of the glory days of Chess in the fifties and sixties."- Eric Campfens BARN OWL BLUES, Holland
"Everything is executed and arranged so that you have the impression you're right in the middle of American music! This can surely satisfy most connoisseurs of the the beautiful music of the pre-war era, and multiple styles of roots music." -Piotr Gwizdala TWOJ BLUES, Poland

EARNING HIS REPUTATION by having the good fortune to tour and record with some of America’s greatest vernacular artists as a blues bassist, Brad here plays guitar andsings. A good half of the songs are his own compositions. Most of the rest are interpretations of his favorite roots classics. Both the writing and treatment are inspired by the work of artists he loves, especially the great bluesmen Tampa Red and Jimmy Reed.
BRAD'S LONG LIST OF CREDITS includes playing and recording with rock ’n’ roll founding fathers Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, Chicago blues legends Hubert Sumlin, Jimmy Rogers, Pinetop Perkins, Louis Meyers, Magic Slim, Luther Johnson, Lefty Diz, and James Cotton; country bluesmen Sam Carr, Frank Frost, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Lightin’ Slim, Snooky Pryor; folk blues matriarch Odetta; Texas bluesmen Johnny Copeland and Frankie Lee; rockabilly great Sleepy La Beef; R ’n’ B legend Roscoe Gordon; master drummers Charles Otis, Bernard Purdie, and Willie Smith, great modern blues artists Slam Allen, Wild Child Butler, Paul Butterfield, Robert Cray, Saron Crenshaw, Christopher Dean, Ronnie Earl, The Frost Kings, Big Daddy Kinsey, Bob Gaddy, Steve Guyger, Michael Hill, Big Jack Johnson, Floyd Lee, Junior Mack, Little Mike and the Tornadoes Band, Paul Oscher, Jerry Portnoy, Bobby Radcliff, Danny Russo, The Dean Shot Revue, Bill Sims, Jr., Somethin’ Blue, Andy Storey, Taj Mahal, Tony O. Band, Kim Wilson…and many more.
BRAD IS JOINED ON "LE BLUES HOT" BY A GREAT GROUP OF MUSICIANS. The extraordinary Jim Davis, whose saxophone credits include Paul Oscher and Hubert Sumlin, also takes the clarinet through some dazzling turns. His horns dance among genres with eloquence and aplomb. The estimable Barry Harrison, alumnus of both Johnny and Shemekia Copeland’s bands, holds the house drum chair at NYC’s famous Terra Blues club. Here he plays drums and percussion with great variety—and humor. Take note of his fills on “ ‘A’ Rag!” Rising star Dave Gross shows off his Gypsy-jazz-tinged guitar talent on “Sunny Side of the Street,” and “‘A’ Rag”—and he contributes some very solid upright bass parts! The versatile Margey Peters, long-time bassist with Big Frank & The Healers, plays electric bass, fiddle, and sings. Margey also co-wrote several of the tunes, as well one she wrote with collaborator Steve Tarshis. Brad Vickers & His Vestapolitans have some great music in store. So grab a seat, sit back, and enjoy!

Instead the design and execution imagined by two New York musicians, Brad Vickers and Margey Peters, it is far from simple: Vickers, a bassist of long experience that has accompanied everyone, from Jimmy Rogers, to Odetta to, Sleepy LaBeef, organized an orchestra (named The Vestapolitans) that pays homage to the shades of pre-War tonalities (using Vestapol and "open tuning" dear to the country blues guitarists.) Retuning his instrument to get the benefit of the acoustic guitar, the leader adds the retro sounds of the sax and clarinet of Jim Davis, the violin of Peters, and the vintage guitar of Dave Gross. Reassessed are timeless classics like Tampa Red's "Give it Up Buddy", that's played between slide guitar and clarinet, "Baby Please Don't Go" (without words—it's the guitar and the violin that sing), "Hesitation Blues," " On The Sunny Side of The Street," and "Hands Off" (this last by Jay McShann, where Margey, with dignity, takes care of Priscilla Bowman's vocal parts.) The result of this long, imaginative jam of hokum blues, dusty jazz manouche, and boogie, are incomparable—and not only in the revisited: original pieces like "Freight Car," "'A' Rag," and especially "Mississippi Shadows," a noir masterpiece with a bit of tension and restlessness, frame "Le Blues Hot" as one of the most uninhibited, original works of these years.

At one time blues and jazz were synonymous, Brad Vickers & his Vestapolitans reunite them with a deb...At one time blues and jazz were synonymous, Brad Vickers & his Vestapolitans reunite them with a debt to early jazz, swing, acoustic blues, and ragtime, creating a sound that is fresh, swinging and hot. Brad Vickers is a well-regarded bassist who's played with everyone from Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley to Jimmy Rogers and Johnny Copeland, and currently backs up Bobby Radcliff and Steve Guyger. Here Brad takes up acoustic guitar in the open “Vestapol” tuning, naming his group The Vestapolitans, and giving this New York City band it's name and distinctive sound. With the addition of Margey Peters on bass and violin, Jim Davis on clarinet and sax and Barry Harrison on drums The Vestapolitans have a style all their own. The twenty tunes on this CD are a mix of originals and classic blues and jazz standards that give it a timeless quality. His originals blend so well with the covers that you'd have to check the liner notes just to be sure.
The original county blues number “Freight Car” starts off this journey with slide guitar leads and clarinet where you'd expect a harmonica. It's a real delight to hear clarinet and violin swing the blues, these standard instruments of early jazz and ethnic bands are rarely used today, and here they're not just an occasional lead, but are used as accompaniment playing off each other and filling out the songs, gives the music a fresh yet familiar feel. Using clarinet is a nice turn around: taking back those parts from the Mississippi Saxophone imitating horns. Brad’s vocals are nice in a homey way, but the real pleasure comes from the subtle interplay of these simple arrangements. The violin starts off an instrumental version of “Baby Please Don't Go” with a driving beat carrying the load as Brad Vickers’ slide work shuffles on out. Rounding out the compilation are traditional numbers like the Rev. Gary Davis' “Hesitation Blues,” Jimmy Reed’s “It's Gonna Be Me (There'll Be A Day),” and “On The Sunny Side Of The Street.” Interspersed with these are instrumentals blending traditional numbers like “Up From the Bottom” and “Give It Up Buddy” with his own originals, “Hudson Stomp” and “'A' Rag”. Margey Peters adds vocals on Jay McShann's “Hands Off” with an edge. Her pleading vocals fit this leave-my-man-alone tale. On a more rockin' side you'll find is “I'm Homesick.” With its slide guitar and sax the title may comes from Homesick James, but could just as well be Elmore. They keep on rockin' with “Gonna Quit You” and “Woogie On Down,” featuring a hard-rockin' clarinet and greasy slide guitar, while “Boogie For Jimmy Reed” is driven by a sly high hat. With so many great numbers the stand-out track may be“Mississippi Shadows,” an instrumental giving the swampy feel of sliding on snake oil down some dark back road. This CD listened too as a whole may be a progression from country blues in the beginning, swing in the midsection, and rock towards the end, and moves along on a steady roll. Finishing off this voyage,“Raisin' Praise” takes on the feel of a Sacred Steel church revival meeting. Played on acoustic slide guitar, it leaves you with a sanctified feeling.
Brad Vickers & His Vestapolitans are like nothing else you'll find today—and only similar to music you may have remembered from the past.
