Formed originally by members Samira and Ricardo, the line up was revamped when Corey joined the band to complete the signature Vicio sound. This eclectic group joins their personal influences from California, New York and Brazil. Influenced heavily by 70's Rock, 80's Pop and 90's Grunge, Vicio has created a high energy & youthfully explosive sound. Vicio has combined their passion for music to create a new kind of Rock with a style that is so driven and energetic that it elicits such bold reactions described as, "seriously one of the best songs ever written on the indie scene"(iTunes customer review). Paired up with Samira's intense vocals it is easy to see why Vicio is a band that has combined the last 30 years of hit music into one addicting sound(George Pettignano, CBS Television). With their Indie/Pop/Rock sound, Vicio has joined the heartbeat of NYC and regularly plays clubs such as Lions Den, Crash Mansion, The Delancey, Pianos, & The Knitting Factory. Live shows can only be described as vivid, entertaining, and most importantly FRESH! - don't miss out on the chance to catch rock's biggest secret - VICIO
