From the very first note you hear you can tell that Jared Thomas and the Vagabonds have managed to intertwine honest, personal lyrics with heart-felt soul, haunting blues riffs, and a bit of hard hitting rock n roll to create a brand of music that is unique and satisfying. These guys will hit you deep in your soul & rock you to your core.
The band is lead by Jared Thomas on lead guitar & vocals, with Gary Windham on bass, and backing vocals, and Ryan Ingram on drums and backing vocals. Collectively these guys have multiple years of experience on stages across the country. Years after first meeting the guys decided they needed to join together & become the Vagabonds. The powerful musicianship & ability to take the reins of vocal responsibility, makes this band a virtual trifecta on stage.
Recently the band has been busy honing their craft on stages across Texas, Illinois, & Kansas. This summer they embarked on their first trip to Illinois with a stop in Memphis along the way. They are on track to successfully play 200+ shows this year. The guys have been beyond blessed with the opportunity to share the stage with such greats as Brandon Jenkins, Thieving Birds, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, Josh Weathers & The True Endeavors, Lo Cash Cowboys, Brett Michaels, among many others.
The group recently released their debut EP titled, “Two Dollar Cigar” on July 1st. This album contains five hard hitting original songs that are guaranteed to leave you wanting more. Jared Thomas and the Vagabonds are eager to share their eclectic blend of blues and rock. [+]
