People's Blues of Richmond (or PBR as they are affectionately referred to by their fans) is one of those rare three-pieces that somehow conjures the sonic power and visual intensity of a thunderstorm. Think Jimi Hendrix Experience meets MC5. They take psychedelic blues rock to a different level with a lyrical element seldom found in the genre. Think Bob Dylan writing lyrics for Black Sabbath songs. It's hard to imagine until it's right in your face. Then it's hard to forget.

Their 2016 12-song release "Quit or Die" showcased a travel-hardened band at a crossroads. With drugs taking their inevitable toll on three young men on an endless search for a good time, this trio had a choice to make and "Quit or Die" is a declaration of their purpose as artists above all else. They received praise from Relix, Paste, Guitar World, AfroPunk, and many others as 3/4 of the album was released as critically acclaimed singles and the tour schedule filled up quickly.

In the two years since, they've found themselves opening for Gregg Allman, ZZ Top, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Revivalists, and Papadosio and playing venues like Red Rocks, 3 sets at Electric Forest, 2 appearances at Lockn, The Brooklyn Bowl, The National, and The Norva.

Before "Quit or Die", PBR had a cult following built around their album "Good Time Suicide". It was a big, dark, manic sounding album full of in-your-face riffs and gut-wrenching song writing. It was followed shortly thereafter by the trio heading to Valdosta, GA to meet and record with Mark Neill (who recorded one of their favorite albums, 'Brothers' by The Black Keys). They did two songs with Mark and learned a lot about recording that they put to use when they returned home to Richmond to record 'Quit or Die'.

They are currently working on their next album release and touring constantly so keep an eye and an ear out for when the storm rolls through and don't miss the wildest show on wheels when it comes to your town!

Vintage Pistol is a 5-piece roots rock band out of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Comprised of a heavy rhythm section, searing electric guitars, keyboards, and harmonica, they are described by most as wild, rambunctious and jam heavy. You'll hear shades of the Allman Brothers, the Stones, Van Morrison and The Marcus King Band in their music.

They take the old road to rock and roll fame and fortune. Relentless touring. Hundreds of gigs, from city to city, night after night, fueled by drugs and booze and the relentless desire to be heard and to connect. No matter where or when you see them, you'll never catch them on an off night. Vintage Pistol fires no rusty bullets. They explode like a flintrock spark to black powder and rage wildly and unpredictably throughout their shows.

Vintage Pistol released its debut album "Trial and Error" in March 2019. The spirit they bring to music has endeared them to many in the jam circuit. Collaborating and touring with the likes of Andy Frasco, CBDB, and Big Something.The band has also supported and played alongside the likes of Tyler Childers, Devon Allman (Allman Betts Band), Consider The Source, Kalu and The Electric Joint, Wild Adriatic and plenty more. Be sure to catch them on the road during festival season with slots at Backwoods Music Festival, FloydFest, Moonshiners Ball, Kickin' It On The Creek, and more TBA!
