Meet Brad Vickers & His Vestapolitans!

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. He had the good fortune to play on Pinetop Perkins’ Grammy-nominated discs, “Born in the Delta” (Telarc), and “Ladies’ Man” (MC Records), and on ‘Pinetop Perkins & Jimmy Rogers, Genuine Blues Legends’ (Elrob), up for a 2017 Blues Music Award. Brad recently backed Mud Morganfield, Diunna Greenleaf, with Bob Margolin and Bob Corritore at the M.E.N.D. Maplewood Festival.

Now his own group, The Vestapolitans, offers a good-time, crowd-pleasing mix of jump, blues and great American roots 'n' roll. Back out touring they were warmly received at the 2021 Blues Bash at the Ranch Festival and at the 2023 Bucks County Blues Fest. Past performances include headlining at the 2017 Thouars, France Blues Festival, Bucks County Blues Picnic, and Pennsylvania Blues Festival. Their 7 CDs have met with terrific reviews (Downbeat gives them ****½ stars), “Best Of” lists, and great radio play. And most important, audiences love them!
