A love story between English and Dutch musicians that started over a decade ago is still alive in Lockdown 2020 and showing devotion to releasing good music. Back in the summer of 2008 two Funk and Soul DJ’s, Tim and Ton based in the historical town of Dordrecht, Netherlands reached out over the sea to songstress Laura, living in Brighton in the UK. A match was made quickly, and plans hatched to get together on stage and in the studio to see what could happen. The rest, as they say, is history! To date Laura Vane and The Vipertones have released 3 studio albums, 7 Eps, a string of singles and have toured all over the globe. Continue reading
Last week we had a lot of fun writing new songs for our 4th album! All of the band took their instruments on a journey to GAM studios in Waimes, Belgium to pour their energy into a bunch of new tunes and ideas.

We hope you like it!
Last Thursday we were invited to come play the Totaalfestival in Bladel, it’s been a while since we played but we’re still enjoying it very much. Hopefully you can see us on stage more often soon!

Laura delivers a seductive punchy vocal, whereas the keys are featuring very selectively and with character. You get the feeling that Laura and the band have been honing their craft further still to provide full-power catchy songs. It’s a total foot-tapper, that is until you feel the urge to get up and join in with the ‘ow ow ow ow’! Continue reading

Wow! What a great start to the BodyQuake Live Tour! Thursday night we performed new songs for a very excited crowd. With our new sound and line up ‘streamlined’, it was brilliant to do our very first show in the home town of the band to a bunch of friendly and warm faces! It certainly put a fire in our bellies as we hit the road to Gronau, Germany. Man, these next two weeks will be cookin’ so come get a bite! Check this video out Continue reading
