With its reputation for lively, laid-back acoustic shows and spontaneous, invitation-only rooftop soirées, The Vignes Rooftop Revival has become an underground node in a thriving local music scene. Guest performers with the group have included some of LA’s finest musicians from a wide variety of genres, including Amber Navran (Moonchild), Eliana Athayde (Nick Waterhouse), Kyle Crane (M. Ward, Daniel Lanois), and Daniel Richardson (Solange). The group’s audience has had its fair share of characters as well— from dubstep producer Skrillex to jazz guitar legend Kurt Rosenwinkel.
Regularly performing as many as 8 times per week, the musicians of The Vignes Rooftop Revival have no plans to slow down. In addition to keeping up an intense schedule of shows, preparations are underway for a live album as well as a studio project. Looking forward, they hope to build a bicycle trailer for the upright bass and begin touring outside of downtown Los Angeles— schemes for a West Coast adventure are already brewing.
