    It was a cool October Friday night in Nashville, TN as the first annual Marathon Music Village Festival hosted the Los Angeles based, energetic rock/soul band, Vintage TroubleConcert Blast was on site to produce another audio podcast concert review on this fun evening.  “Troublemakers” (the nickname of their fan base) came in from different parts of the country and we met one fan from France.  Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson were back together again for this evening of fun.  Enjoy the podcast!

    It was time once again to enjoy one of our favorite live acts that we discovered from The Who’s Quadrophenia Tour, Vintage Trouble.  These guys are some of the nicest men in rock and roll and they are definitely one of the best live acts that have come from this century with their unique blend of rock and soul.  This was the first time we’ve seen Vintage Trouble perform as a headliner.

     

    As we made our way to the backstage area, the band was making their way to the stage.  Guitarist Nalle Colt recognized us, came over to us, and shook our hands.  Once the announcement was made through the PA System, “Ladies and Gentlemen Are You Ready?  Get Your Hands Together For Vintage Trouble!”, the screams of approval was heard, and the band members made their way to their positions on the stage, strapped on their instruments, gathered together center stage at the front of Richard Danielson’s simple drum kit, and greeted each other with their traditional nods and hand-shakes before cranking into the opening number.

    Ty Taylor, one of the best entertaining front men in today’s rock music, began to take control of the stage and the crowd as VT  opened with a rhythmic number called, “Low Down Dirty Dog”.  The show continued with Ty showing out his vocal ability as well as his dance moves during, “High Times, They Are A Comin’.”  This is one of my personal concert favorites as it displays their party style of soul/rock while the next song shows their rock style as they went into “Blues Hand Me Down”.  The show continued with a song we weren’t familiar with, but a song with a good groove, “You Save Me Baby”.

    It was time for Ty Taylor to address the crowd as he asked those in attendance to “give it up” for all the bands that performed.  Ty continued by telling the crowd, “And then make some noise for yourselves you seem to be giving it as you want something good right now…” before starting the next rocker, “Total Strangers”.

    Ty spoke to the crowd again, “Sometimes it is so cold and a couple seconds later you’re sweating.
    Thank you again for coming out here today.  How about an amazing round of noise for this first anniversary of this festival.

    Ty continued by talking about all the festivals that are around and how excited it is to attend the first one.
    Ty continues, “I would hate to have to think that all we have to do is yell at people, and party, and talk about dirty things because we do understand that it is important… sometimes you gotta talk about love.  How many people believe in the love song out there?
    Ty had a scream match between the ladies and the men and of course the ladies won.  This led into the Vintage Trouble love song, “Gracefully”.

    It was now time for Ty Taylor to make his way out into the crowd as he and the band went into the extended version of “Jezzebella”.  Ty also expressed some of his unnecessary profanity while addressing the Nashville crowd.  Ty is way too talented to try to excite the crowd with words and statements that are not needed.  Leave that for the heavier bands like Motley Crue, Rob Zombie, Kid Rock, and other crude artists.

    Although Ty made his way back to the stage, but in their next number he returned to the pits of the crowd to dance and to get everyone to sing along.  Unfortunately he also continued with the vulgar talking as they went into the concert favorite, “Run Like A River”.

    Ty Taylor spoke about the extra time they have on the road so they do a lot of song writing.  Vintage Trouble introduced us to another new song with a smooth groove, “24/7 365 Satisfaction Man”.  Ty told the crowd that some songs are for the head, some songs are for the heart, but some songs are for the hips as they rocked through the song, “Pelvis Pusher”.

    Ty continued with a speech (almost a lecture) about how we all have friends and family that we need to contact in times of need. He said it is our job to reach down and pull somebody out of the hole.  The band then led into the emotional song, “Nobody Told Me”.

    Ty introduced another rocking song called “Stike Your Light” and then Vintage Trouble left the stage to prepare for the slow groove encore song that ended with one band member at a time, “Run Outta You”.  Vintage Trouble immediately made their way to their merchandise table to sign the swag they sold and take photos with the fans.

    This was our first time to see Vintage Trouble as a headliner.  I would have loved to see them perform “Nancy Lee” and “With A Little Help From My Friends” instead of performing extended versions of “Jezzebella” and “Run Like A River“.  I also preferred they open the show with something with a faster tempo.  We all agreed that they should have omitted any and all vulgarity and profanity.  This is one reason why each one of us deducted one point from the Concert Blast Scale (1-worst through 10-best).  Tom gave it a 8.5,  Brian gave it a 8.7, and I gave it an 8.5.  Love the band, love the songs, love the guys, but hate the profanity!
