Formed in Ohio in 2004 by Singer/Guitarist Jonnie Vincenzo and Bassist Russell Bombik, The Velvematics play Chuck Berry/Lazy Cowgirls style no frills Rn’R.
Their debut release “Dialectic Materialism” was released in August of 2006 and the follow up “Black Leather Rebel” in 2011.
These guys might not be inventing the musical wheel again but when most “music” is made in the corporate kitchen with cookie cutters, I’ll take the real stuff anytime.
(excerpt from bands bio)
“We are in a time where society no longer has anything innovative, hip, or cool. Real music and originality seem to be a thing of the past. Let’s not forget “American Idol” stamping out plastic singers in their pop song factory. But now we are on the verge of a cataclysmic event. Earthquakes, buildings crumble; everything is reduced to debris and rubble. Who is this we see emerging from the ruins? Could they be new Rock N Roll Revolutionaries? “The Velvematics” are here to save the world from bubblegum pop music and the same ole’ same ole’.”
