“Britain’s "GetVegas" leave heavy grooves and vibes much like the band FREE did in the late 60s - with songs in your mind and soul, not easily erased. That's for sure!” - Lucy Piller ( / Atlanta / Magic Wand Productions – Roswell, Georgia US)

“Not a band to sit too comfortably in the past, they quickly bring their sound up to date with full-throttle hard rock and a cracking production. Check out “Gypsy Lane” (on their myspace page) for proof. Seeped in the blues with a distorted - almost stoner element, the track lumbers along keeping pace with a gruff ZZ Top/Savoy Brown lick. For kids under twenty playing old school rock this good…dude!” - Todd Smith (The Cutting Edge)

Desolation Angels

A Tribute to Bad Company

Desolation Angels - the Ultimate Tribute to Bad Company

Official - Desolation Angels.US - Website

will be performing in Reno Nevada at

 Harrahs on Aug 31st  

Video & Bookings

Desolation Angels was formed to recreate exactly the aura and excitement of this beloved super group in action. Filling the role of singer Paul Rodgers (who was known as the "the Voice" since his days in Free) is the multi-talented Mark McPhail. Mark not only sings and plays like his Bad Co. counterpart, but bears an uncanny likeness to him as well. From his high-energy stage presence, to his incredible rapport with audiences, you’ll swear you’re seeing the real thing.

Guitarist/singer Fred Sampson brings a wealth of rock and roll experience to the band, and along with the dynamic rhythm section of David Clark (bass/vocals) and Glenn Hicks (drums/vocals), they complete the powerhouse experience that is Desolation Angels –

 The Ultimate Tribute to Bad Company. 


What a name MUTE MATH !!! But see them if you can

The four piece (originating from New Orleans) has scattered influences that are apparent without being obvious, and touch on everything from DJ shadow styled beats, moments of beauty and grandeur a la Bjork, and vocals that pay legitimate homage to Police-era Sting. When asked about this vast expanse of musical territory that we are asked to find them dwelling within, Meany replied, "I blame it on the past forty years of music". They act on the idea that their magic is to be found in the mixture of countless thoughts. Their live show thrives on this random energy too involving homemade instruments, live sampling, a junked-out keytar, and the kind of freak-outs that keep any given performance worth the price of admission.
