The Vacancies

Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, The Vacancies give listeners an honest and profound punk rock sound that is magnified by their high energy, high powered shows. With Billy Crooked's snotty vocals, Michael James' dynamic guitar and Bo's driving bass line, joined by Dave Long on guitar and Kevin Hopkins on drums, the band's sound has fully matured.

The Vacancies have shared the stage with Social Distortion, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, The Buzzcocks, The Hives, Stiff Little Fingers, The Casualties, Rise Against, The Dwarves, Social Distortion, Flogging Molly, The Adolescents, Street Dogs, Pennywise, The Bamboozle Festival and Warped Tour. With influences ranging from The Ramones, The Clash, The Stooges and The Dead Boys to The Beatles, The Vacancies "steamroll over what passes for Punk today."
