Imagine if The Alman Brothers Band went on a trippy magic carpet ride with The Black Keys and all of it was being narrated by Van "The Man" Morrison. That is pretty much Vintage Pistol, a 5 Piece rock band out of Fayetteville, AR. Influenced by the sounds of psychedelic, roots, rock music Vintage Pistol is doing just as its name states and is staying vintage and true to the sounds that were laid down by the Giants before them. The band will be releasing its 2nd EP "The Second Amendment" in August 2016.  

I’ve seen these two play music anywhere they get the chance. On the street and in hotel lobbies, if there is time to stand around there is time to jam and boogie. Sit or stand, Handmade moments wants you to move in closer. Have you ever heard Joel and Anna play? If you’re looking for an experience that will set something inside of you free, then you ought to find out where they’re playing next. 

Listening to the duo do what they love is like sitting in on a class on how to be yourself. What do these two passionate beings value you might wonder. Anna values activism, bravery, community, and smiles. Joel values art, individuality, his hair (a lot), and having a genuine interest to meet new people. While they both may have somewhat separate things they value, they both share a passion for friends, playing music, coffee, and trees. 

They both sing from their perpetual souls. Anna beat boxes, “because there’s a necessity to fill our songs up” she said. They talked about eventually having a band to back them up to do the filling. Hopefully Anna won’t ixnay the beatboxing completely, because it’s awesome. With Anna on upright bass, and Joel playing the mandolin guitar, they both are striving for more. They are wanting to fix up their live in bus and put a recording studio in it. Traveling; and making live feeds of protests, riots and marches for issues they feel people would want to watch and stay informed about is what they see in their near future.
