Since forming in 2009 by playing the college circuit across the Southeastern U.S., THE VEGABONDS—Daniel Allen (lead vocals), Richard Forehand (guitars/vocals), Paul Bruens(bass), Beau Cooper (keys/vocals) and Bryan Harris (drums)—have released three full-length albums and are close to completion on their fourth. Their most recent, 2016’s What We’re Made Of, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Tom Tapley, whose portfolio includes Elton Johnand Bruce Springsteen, among others. Tapley returned to the studio for “Long Haired Country Boy” and is working on the forthcoming album as well, to be released early 2018.
With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, THE VEGABONDS give their fans a sensational performance with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd,the late Gregg Allman, and Kid Rock, among others, and performed at several festivals including Peach Fest, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest, and Toadlick. More dates are being added and will be announced soon.
