What started as a group of friends with rock n roll dreams evolved into a diverse project for six hungry emerging local artists hoping to bring something different to modern rock. With a wide spectrum of influences, they pull it together in their writing to create the Vivid Vertigo sound. With tunes both radio friendly and obscure they continue to reel audiences in. The band has opened for national acts like Buckcherry, Longreef, Tommy Tutone and Drake Bell. The journey is just beginning and we hope you'll all come along for the ride.
