Vintage#18

Hard-driving blues rhythms and soul grooves fuel the blistering performance of DC-based Soul Blues band Vintage#18. After attending a performance, John Porter, WCVE declares, “Vintage#18 is a band you have to see live in order to appreciate their level of performance.”
April 2017, Vintage#18 released their debut album Grit which reflects the band’s love of retro Soul and Blues, featuring a mix of originals and two covers (ZZ Top and Bob Dylan). The band received their first industry nod in early 2017 - a Blues Blast Music Award Nomination for New Artist Album Debut.
The band’s live performances have generated quite the buzz throughout Washington, DC and surrounding areas and the tight-knit group soon found themselves sharing stages with the Nighthawks, Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials, Albert Cummings, Selwyn Birchwood, Coco Montoya and Roomful of Blues.

Vintage#18 features the vocals of Robbin Kapsalis, the unique sound of Bill Holter/#18 on guitar, Alex Kuldell/drums and Mark Chandler/bass.
Blues In the South hit it on the head…” Although this outfit is undoubtedly a blues band, they have a distinctively individual sound.”
