VIGOR  MORTIS  BAND  is a classic rock band,  but not what you would expect.    Our 6-member group performs songs from the 60s, 70s,80s that feature lush vocal harmonies, intricate guitar voicings, enhanced percussion, with added brass and woodwind colorations.  Our playlist is varied among dancing and listening songs from Eagles, Beatles, America, Tom Petty, Marvin Gaye, Santana, Doors, Springteen, Neil Yound, Zombies and more.   Scroll down for our playlist.

  Ok, yes, we are often asked about our name "Vigor Mortis Band".  Sorry it is nothing dark or mysterious.  You see, at the inception of the band, some of our members were in their twenties.... young and full of energy.... the "vigor".  Three other band members were in their sixties..... you know, old and near death, ha.  Those bandmates were of course the "mortis".

  So, the name is nothing morbid or sinister, but we do hope you like it.......
