Los Angeles-based rock and soul act Vintage Trouble brought their self-described “live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth’d, pelvis-pushing juke music” to the Road to Crossroads party presented by Fender and Guitar Center at New York’s Cutting Room last night. What was supposed to be only a three-song featured set turned into a half hour run through of some of their most rippin’ tunes. A Fender Jazz Bass and Gretsch Duo Jet were the choice instruments for bassist Rick Barrio Dill and guitarist Nalle Colt.
The Road to Crossroads party presented by Fender and Guitar Center was the warm-up event for the two big nights of Eric Clapton’s Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden on April 12-13. VIP guests, Crossroads artists and Fender and Guitar Center fans were all invited to the celebratory event, which also included live music by Pat McLaughlin Band featuring Michael Rhodes and Kenny Greenberg, Joe Robinson, Josh Doyle and Oz Noy.
