The Vagrants 

The Vagrants are a rock band that live the independent spirit of rock.

They walk, talk, and breath, the music they love to play. Their original songs were born from the idea that music is king. The Vagrants have melted all their inspirations from ACDC, Zeppelin, Queen, Allman Brothers, Floyd Santana, RHCP, and Foo Fighters into their own very unique style. Years ago ‘rock’ meant diversity!! If you love diversity and classic rock, you will love The Vagrants

The Vagrants are fronted by high-energy rock chick Renate. She is often compared to Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar Suzi Quatro, Melissa Etheridge, and other ballsy front women, but her vocals are uniquely Renate. Cheeky and fun loving she gets the party started.

Journeyman songwriter/guitarist for the Vagrants, Steve Iorio, has his own unique style of playing with complex guitar riffs and arrangements all made to look simple.  Told on a regular basis ‘You are the best guitarist I have ever seen’ Steve just shrugs his head and says ‘You need to go out and see more guitarists!”  Brazilian born Rafael on bass and German born Julian on drums bring some South American spice and fresh groove to the lineup.

The Vagrants have released 4 profoundly different studio albums and 2 live CDs. They never cared what the record companies said, they only put out music they love. Not trendy, not conformist, just solid song-writing delivered by a unique sounding lead singer, with a real voice, brilliant guitar and a tight groove from a quality rhythm section.

Vagrant means: “vagabond, a person who wanders about with no permanent home or employment.”

The Vagrants got their name from life on the road and it feeds their music with raw energy and edge. Starting in Australia, the members come from Australia, New York, Brazil, and Germany. The Vagrants live show features catchy original tunes and classic rock anthems, that get the crowd pumping. Their show features instrumental virtuosity, solos, stage antics, and a roller coaster party, with Renate’s voice soaring above it all. The show is passionate, it is the real deal, the intensity is infectious, and it gets people moshing. This band have toured non-stop for 15 years playing over 1,000 shows, at festivals, clubs, open-airs, and small dirty bars. If you haven’t seen them, it is your own fault.

Die Vagabunden

The Vagrants sind einer Rockband, die den Spirit Ihrer Musik leben!

The Vagrants ließen alle ihre Einflüsse und Inspirationen von ACDC, Led Zeppelin den Allman Brothers oder Santana, aber auch Queen, Pink Floyd, RHCP oder den Foo Fighters mit Ihrem eigenen Sound verschmelzen – zu einem einmaligen Erlebnis. Und wer auf diese Bands steht, der liebt auch „The Vagrants“!

The Vagrants werden angeführt von Rock-Chick Renate. Sie strotzt nur so von Energie, was ihr häufig Vergleiche zu Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Suzi Quatro, Melissa Etheridge und anderen kraftvollen Frontfrauen einbringt. Aber am Ende ist sie dennoch die unverwechselbare, freche und herausragende Renate, die noch jede Show amtlich eingeheizt hat.

Ganz vorne mit dabei ist auch Steve Iorio. Der Weltreisende (lebte schon in unzähligen Ländern) ist Gitarrist und Songwriter der Band. Er hat seine ganz eigene Art komplexe Arrangements und Gitarrenriffs zu spielen, es dabei aber ganz einfach aussehen zu lassen. Oft hört er den Satz: „Du bist der beste Gitarrist, den ich jemals gesehen habe“, worauf er regelmäßig antwortet: „Dann solltest du du rausgehen und dir mehr Gitarristen ansehen“.

Der Brasilianer Rafael am Bass, sowie der deutsche Drummer Julian bringen südamerikanischen Flair und straighte Grooves mit ins Line-Up.

Bis heute veröffentlichten „The Vagrants“ vier, von Grund auf verschiedene Studio-Alben und zwei Live-CDs. Ungeachtet dem Willen der Plattenfirmen schafften es nur Songs auf die Scheiben, die die Band für gut genug befunden hat. Nicht kommerziell oder trendy, sondern einfach ihren eigenen Sound, gepaart mit Renates einmaliger Stimme und einer Band, die ihr Handwerk versteht.

 Vagrant“ übersetzt bedeutet Vagabund: „Eine Person, die herumreist, ohne festen Wohnsitz oder ein Zuhause“

Der Name entstand während des Lebens auf Tour und es erfüllt ihre Musik mit viel Energie und einem Hauch Rauheit. Gegründet und großgemacht in Australien, hat sich das Line-Up stets entwickelt. Heute kommen die Mitglieder aus Australien, New York, Brasilien und Deutschland.

In Ihren Shows spielen sie sowohl ihre selbstkreierten Ohrwürmer, aber auch die großen Hymnen aus der Welt der Rockmusik. Mit großem Erfolg und begeistertem Publikum.  Die Intensität der Shows bringt die Säle zum Kochen und die Fans zum Tanzen.  Diese Band tourt seit 15 Jahren non-stop durch die Welt, spielte über 1000 Konzerte auf Festivals, Clubs und Open-Airs, aber auch in abgewrackten, kleinen, dreckigen Bars.

Wer sie noch nicht erlebt hat, ist schlicht und ergreifend selbst Schuld! Geh Online und lad dir die Tunes runter! BAM! Und dann komm zum nächsten Gig in DEINER Nähe. Sing mit der Menge mit! Egal ob es die Band in Komplettbesetzung ist, oder die intimen Acoustic- Shows von Steve und Renate. Diese Musik kommt immer direkt aus dem Herzen, dass jeden Rock-Fan auf Trab hält.
