Guitarist/songwriter Brad Vickers learned on the job playing, recording, and touring with America's blues and roots masters: Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Rogers, Hubert Sumlin, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Odetta, Sleepy LaBeef, and Rosco Gordon—to name only a few. Brad cut his teeth backing up these elder statesmen, working with them over the years. He had the good fortune to play on Pinetop Perkins’ Grammy-nominated discs, “Born in the Delta” (Telarc), and “Ladies’ Man” (MC Records). Now his own group, The Vestapolitans, offers a good-time, crowd-pleasing mix of Blues and great American Roots 'n' Roll.
