"The Vesties"

If you've ever wondered if there could ever be a band as good as Blondie, The Vesties are a band to watch.-
Matthew Waldman - Nooka


"Meet the girls who are heading a musical revolution!"

Sure, they have the looks that will stick out in your memory like a 50-story view, but they don’t necessarily need them (though I’m glad they’re there). They have the determination to take it as far as they desire. They’ve recently finished recording an 11-song CD that is available now on cdbaby.com. And this is just the beginning - the Vesties have all the ingredients to make it last. So check out one of the many New York clubs that the band is filling night in and night out… See why they have one of the most loyal followings in the big apple.-

"The Vesties CD review"

It would be easy to compare The Vesties, an all-girl power-pop/punk rock band, to any number of other seemingly similar acts (of which there are many)--but that would be a mistake. There's a lot more happening on these songs than plain power chord pop would suggest; from the soaring, multi-layered vocals to some dynamic song structures that include keys, melodic guitar fills and an overall edgy presence, The Vesties have a sound that is uniquely their own and packs a raw rock n' roll punch. From the garage punk rage of "Desperate" to the rewarding slow-build of "Summer Song", the album has some definite gems, and there is a touch of everything from country to metal to shake things up.- B.D. - The Deli


"WOW!"

THE VESTIES: The Vesties cut their teeth in the hardest, and most competitive, of scenes-New York restaurants. The members of this stellar rock trio are all former waitresses- and coworkers-who formed the band while doing time in the service industry. Their sound is similiar to the Runaways, but without pandering to the '70s rock nostalgia world. See them tonight and pony up the merchandise, because 15 percent tips are no match for what it must cost to fill a tour van with gasoline.

"The Vesties...Next All Girl Sensation!"

The latest all girl band sensation taking the tristate area by storm is THE VESTIES. The universe never ceases to amaze me! I was in Soho interviewing designer Judi Rossen, owner of The Good, Bad, and The Ugly Boutique at 85 Kenmare Street, when the Vesties guitarist Julie Kowalchick walks in to purchase glitter for their show at Galapagos on Oct 11, 2006. Julie happened to hear me interviewing Judi and asked if I'd like to interview an all girl band guitarist. I turned and looked at and said "sure." I snapped a pic for reference, and handed Julie my business card mentioning I would be happy to post The Vesties Schedule on my website. Julie had no idea that she met the founder of 28K records and XTA entertainment platforms. Let's see if she emails me.

One thing is for certain, The Vesties RULE! I logged into their website and listened to their tracks. WOW! One way or another, XTA will feature more pictures and info on the dynamic rock experimental punk all girl band. They are consistent with the theme of my Sohonews.org "Different is Noticed". I love these girls! - sohonews.org


"The Vesties..."

What's better than three hot-ass chicks? Three hot-ass chicks that rock harder than the entire VIP section of a Pat Benetar fan convention, that's what. The Vesties are from Brooklyn and play fashioned-angry lady punk. Peep their new CD at www.thevesties.com. God these chicks are FINE! - Mass Appeal Online

Bio

The Vesties met while waiting the ruthless tables of Manhattan and did not instantly connect. Willow hated Julie and tried to get her fired multiple times…it’s true. But despite their differences, they began to jam together with fellow co-worker Mary Jane, continuing on a natural path to form one of Brooklyn’s most successful all-female groups. They have performed on FOX’s Fearless Music TV and ABC’s The View. Mass Appeal Magazine featured the guitarist, Julie, in a full-page article and The Deli Magazine just reviewed their most recent CD, hailing it as a “raw power-pop bite with some soaring vocals.” Recently, The Vesties finished a successful, southeast tour, billing with such acts as The Virgins and the Mishaps. Notably, Rock Hill, South Carolina’s Channel 2 News covered their appearance at Richmond Drive Elementary School.

Their new album thrust into the scene May 16th, 2008, and will soon be followed by a new music video. Lyrically, this album’s music reflects their own experiences living in the best town to be broken hearted and reckless. Inspired by early metal, Eighties synth pop, and songwriting from the Sixties, their sound compares to Tilt and Sleater-Kinney with a touch of Murder City Devils. In appreciation of classic synth music, the Vesties chose to cover Berlin’s “The Metro”, morphing it into a progressive modern garage release. “Start a War” is a salute to Iron Maiden with its blazing vocals and a Dickinson like vibrato. “Alex” returns to the great girl group sound reminiscent of 1960’s Motown. The poetry of “Seeing Red” highlights the death of a personal social life. The albums climactic finale, “Redheads” is an adoring tribute to revved-up, ginger-haired ladies.
