Feeling a bit camera shy


The raw and energetic rock / blues fusion of The Vasco Era has attracted a truck load of attention and earned them an impressive touring schedule including Big Day Out, The Falls Festival, East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, West Coast Blues ‘n’ Roots Festival, St Kilda Festival, The Melbourne International Music Festival, touring with The Black Keys, a national tour with the Violent Femmes and sold out venues for their own shows.

And they don’t disappoint. Following their Falls Festival performance, Beat Magazine’s Jaymz Clements had this to say: “…these guys pretty much grabbed me by the shoulders, gave me a quick kick in the balls, and blew me away. How do you spell talent? V-a-s-c-o-e-r-a. They played a White Stripes medley better than the White Stripes!”

"In the tradition of Ohio's The Black Keys and Detroit’s The White Stripes, Melbourne now has a scrawny white boy blues group to call its own".
Liam Houlihan, Melbourne's MX paper.

The Vasco Era has added 2004 National Campus Band Competition winners to their list of achievements. Run by the Australasian Association of Campus Activities, it is the largest band competition in the southern hemisphere and has been running for over two decades. The competition attracts over 1,000 entrants Australia wide and the quality is certainly not lacking with previous winners including Eskimo Joe, Jebediah, The Vines, George, Waikiki and 78 Saab. The Vasco Era won 4 rounds including the national final in WA on October 30.
