Biography: Farm Vegas
Farm Vegas is an up-and-coming rock and roll quintet from the music-rich riverbeds of Richmond Virginia. Formed in 2005 while the guys were still in college, the band cut its teeth playing beer-soaked fraternity parties in basements and living rooms across Virginia.
After graduation, the guys moved to Richmond, fine-tuned their craft, and quickly became one of the city's biggest draws -- packing the most prestigious venues across the River City. Now Farm Vegas has become one of the most in-demand bands on the college music scene, having played over 25 colleges and universities across the region.
The transformation from frat band to what they are today started when the band released it's debut album, On a Wire, in 2007. Although the CD was recorded with a minimal budget in just 3 days, it nonetheless succeeded in conveying the raw energy at the band's core. And people noticed. CDBaby.com called the CD "one of the most promising debuts of 2007" and national jam-centric magazine RELIX featured a track on their "On the Rise" CD Sampler.
Although much of the band's reputation is based on an electrifying stage show, the band has been crafting new tunes this Summer that veer in an exciting new direction. A new album is the works and will be released later this Fall.
With little funds, no major label support, and a grassroots booking approach, the band has thrived on the energy and support of its wide network of friends and fans, and is VERY grateful for anyone who has seen a show, seen 50 shows, bought a CD, turned-on a friend, kept in touch through the website, and/or offered support in any imaginable way.
