Callaghan’s is bringing a batch of fresh Southern rock to the OGD, starting with the “Alabama-born, Nashville-bred” quintet, The Vegabonds.
In 2009, this group began promoting its sound on the Southeastern college circuit and a year later released its debut album, “Dear Revolution.” Conjuring the spirits of Southern groups ranging from The Black Crowes to The Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds turned out guitar-heavy anthems filled with ambitious attitude.
Last year, The Vegabonds released their twang-heavy tour anthem, “Partying with Strangers.” Now the group is giving fans a preview of its next full-length with “Everything I Need.” While demonstrating the band’s growth since “Dear Revolution,” “Everything I Need” maintains the group’s Southern formula. This upbeat track evokes deep tracks from Tom Petty’s early work. The single is filled with heavenly work on the fretboard and the Deep South lyrical poetry for which The Vegabonds are known worldwide.
