Robbin Kapsalis and Vintage #18 ignited the Washington D.C. Blues and Soul music scene in 2013, but they’ve already racked up a slew of well-deserved accolades. Their 2017 debut “Grit” was nominated for a Blues Blast Music Award (New Artist Debut Album) and they’ve been featured artists everywhere from Memphis, TN all the way to the Kennedy Center’s New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Their sophomore album, “Soul Shaker” – released in October 2021 – landed a coveted spot on the Living Blues charts, and placement in the top 15 of B.B. King’s Bluesville Rack of Blues on Sirius XM radio; the album also earned ‘best of the year’ spots for all of 2021 by Blues Music Magazine reviewers.
The celebrations of Robbin Kapsalis and Vintage #18 are justified. If you listen to their records, which step into Blues with a lotta Soul, you’ll easily understand. And if you get to hear them live, you’ll only want to hear them more. Kapsalis’s mesmerizing performances in her trademark white boots with a matching fringe dress command attention – alongside her stellar band – offering audiences a marvelous gumbo of musical talent mixed with charisma and pass.
