“A Blues rocking guitar-slinger that doesn't want to follow any path but his own turns in a date like the kind your pop always raves about but you never heard of and can't even find on streaming services. A road warrior that knows how to please a crowd with ears looking for something meaty, this hard hitting set hits the target for thrills, chills, fun and excitement. Check it out. ”
The Reverend Double J
preaching the gospel of the boogie
J.J. Vicars tears up stages and packs dance floors wherever he goes with his distinct brand of Hard Drivin' Blues, Boogie, & Rock 'n' Roll. His snarling guitar and rough-hewn vocals coupled with rumbling bass and a driving backbeat draws on Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly, Hillbilly, and Western Swing for a good time gumbo of hip shakin' Root Rock.
Known for his marathon performances, he stretches songs out to marathon lengths working his band and his audience into an ecstatic frenzy of rocking liberation much like the Rhythm & Blues honkers and shouters of yore. He peels off guitar riffs jumping from Country to Jazz to Blues during a single chorus in between belting out tales of love, lust, and general wayward behavior in a voice that can only be earned by putting in a lot of late nights. A minimalist, he relies solely on a Telecaster and a simple tube amp to work his magic and a rhythm section to round out the sound.
A "lifer" and an ex-pat JJV has cranked out his good-time Roots-rockin' euphony around the world for three decades. Six full length albums, two singles, two side projects, several guest appearances, and eight music videos fill his catalog.
