VDELLI are a unique three-piece band from Perth, Western Australia of rare quality and substance. The group features Michael Vdelli (Vocal/Guitar), whose vocal diversity ranges from smooth, soulful, bluestones to the voice of a Rock n Roll madman about to explode. Combined with his powerhouse guitar playing, Michael has a stage presence that continues to captivate audiences in Australia and Europe.

Combined with his powerhouse guitar playing, Michael has a stage presence that continues to captivate audiences in Australia and Europe.
He is considered by many industry insiders and fans alike to be one of the shining lights in the genre, and after seeing him perform live, it's easy to see why.
The rhythm section of the group is not merely a backing band for Michael. They are front-line players in their own right.
On drums, VDELLI features one of the world's best in the field, Mr Ric Whittle.
Ric is a master drummer with a lifetime of experience on his instrument that is immediately evident from the first bar he plays.
Lightning chops and brutal energy, combined with taste and class give a clue as to what to expect from this heavyweight of contemporary drumming.
Bass player Troy Gennoe, since joining the band in early 2007, has fit perfectly into the pressure cooker situation that is VDELLI.
He brings to the band not only the solid groove and pump orientated playing the group requires, but also a personality the fans adore.
Troy has a massive sound that has taken the band to a new level of power and feel that is genuinely energizing the crowd at every concert the band plays.
VDELLI have released ten CDs since 1997 and believe their best is still ahead of them as they continue to evolve, grow and improve their live performance, song writing and recording techniques.
Live shows consist mainly of original material, that has been audience tested and approved, and interpretations of favourite blues standards.
In addition to these, the band uses other well-chosen musical canvases to express themselves. The result is a repertoire that is a breath of fresh air for the listener.
VDELLI have not once had a bad review in over ten years of live performance and most critics are found wanting to find superlatives to describe this astounding live act.
A must see for any music enthusiast,
VDELLI are unforgettable!
