Biography

Vagrancy was formed in February 2004 with members: Rick Camargo on the Guitar, Joe Palek on the Bass, Kevin Samsa on the Drums,Steve on Vocals. We take a loose/diverse approach to what can be intense genre of music-Metal. We do not fall into any exact category of Metal as our songs are as diverse in their composure as they are in their presentation. We try to continuously blend the musical styles within the band to keep a fresh sound. As we continue along our musical road, we will keep chronicles up to date (pictures, music, dates, and remarks) through our website www.vagrancymusic.com. This will be made possible by our strong effort with Timebomb Entertainment and Growling Dawg Records to bring our local scene to the masses. We intend make ourselves appeal to the people with groove/melodies interlaced into cutting edge metal riffs.

The Encyclopedia definition from www.encyclopedia.com
In law, term applied to the offense of persons who are without visible means of support or domicile while able to work. State laws and municipal ordinances punishing vagrancy often also cover loitering, associating with reputed criminals, prostitution, and drunkenness. The punishment is usually a fine or several months in jail. Instead of arresting vagrants, local officials often attempt to induce them to move on. Beginning in the 1960s vagrancy laws came under constitutional attack. The vague statutory language was often held to be too broad, in violation of the due process requirements of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: individuals were not adequately warned of what conduct was forbidden and police had too much discretion in deciding whether to make an arrest. It was ruled that enforcement of the laws often violated the protections of the First Amendment, especially when police used them against political demonstrators and unpopular groups. U.S. vagrancy laws generally punish the status of being a vagrant and not some overt act. This approach derives from English laws of the 16th cent. that generally failed to distinguish between the indigent and the criminal and that set harsh punishments, including whipping and transportation to the colonies. England gradually modified its poor laws and today punishes only overt acts dangerous to the community. Vagrants are often tolerated as scavengers, and in certain East Asian countries they are ascribed semireligious qualities, revered, but also feared, for their spiritual powers. Vagrants are basically a product of unemployment and their numbers swell during depressions.
