"Indie Band review"

“I could quite happily sit in awe watching the drummer do his thing, then despite my instincts, mouth agape, take the time to watch fingers flying over the frets on guitar. More importantly the aural stimulus is equally as intoxicating. Once bass and vocal are added to the sound track we find an immensely talented group who know precisely what they are aiming to deliver and do it with top marks.” - Indie Band Review

"Florida Today"

“Playing a series of shows, the band ViliFi will give audiences a chance to experience an eclectic mix of original progressive rock ’n’ roll as well as...” - Florida Today


Still working on that hot first release.



ViLiFi is a power rock trio from the east coast of Central Florida.

Shain Honkonen, with his shredding guitar and unique vocals styles, lays down the soundtrack for your life.Chris Marshall on drums and Dylan Thomas on bass, and the trio sound of ViLiFi resonates with a style of progressive alternative rock that rocks the body while the lyrics provide the soul.

Each musician is a solo artist in their own right and the collaboration of these three musical entities forms ViLiFi into the band it is today.

Early on the band performed exclusively within the Central Florida area gaining a loyal following. They have since played internationally on stages large and small, wining several awards along the way. Over time ViliFi has graced the same stages as The Marshall Tucker Band, Saliva, Dead Letter Circus, Smile Empty Soul and Eye Empire. Having performed on stages that include Rocklahoma, The Hard Rock Live, The Whiskey, Florida Music Festival,  The Legendary Dobbs, as well as, many others, the band has become adept at displaying their talent in front of any audience.
