Vegas With Randolph

Vegas with Randolph’s music has been called “ebullient, unabashed power pop”, “thinking man's party music,” and “blissful pop songwriting at its finest” and their music has been compared to Fastball, Sloan, and Fountains of Wayne. In 2011, with the release of their second CD “Above The Blue” and their third CD "Rings Around The Sun", VWR returned with what Mike Lidskin calls "Sheer Powerpop Perfection"!

At the nucleus of VWR is the songwriting partnership of John Ratts and Eric Kern. Starting in high school in their mid-western hometown, the duo has penned hundreds of songs, many of which have received radio airplay, use in TV and video, compilation CD's, covers by several artists, and awards (2010 "Song of the Year" Twirlie award, a 2010 “Modern Rock Recording of the Year” Wammie, listings among the Top 100 CD’s of 2009 by Absolute Powerpop.com and others, and 8 other award nominations between '08 and ‘11 by the Washington Area Music Association). The band includes a number of accomplished and highly creative musicians: Dan Aylestock, David Purol and Brock Harris.

VWR’s self-titled debut CD was released in 2008 and followed quickly by the 2009 EP “Side Trip”, a collection of new singles and novelty songs. In August 2011 their second full length CD, the critically acclaimed “Above The Blue” was released, and was followed in 2013 with their renowned "Rings Around The Sun."

The band is currently working on their fourth CD with a 2016 target release, and has just released the single "I Could Be The One" to start off 2015.
