One of the grooviest bands around, Indi and The Vegas are a top PRZ Live act. The band was formed initially in Indi Forde’s school days. Indi, Joe and Matt’s band have evolved over the years to create a fine combination of pop and soul. The group is inspired by the likes of Queen, Michael Jackson and Prince (‘the best of the best’ according to Indi.) The band perform fully amped up, with an acoustic drum kit create a refreshing performance. In Indi’s own words, their sets are ‘funky, energetic and tight.’
As original songwriters, the band’s first EP, “Fair Fight” consisted of five tracks, and they followed up with their debut album, self produced and titled, in the summer of 2014. The records have had plays from BBC introducing and have led to sets at Rhythms of The World, Balstock, Goatfest, as well as Indi and The Vegas being crowned Battle of The Bands winners at The Horn in St. Albans. This resulted in them receiving a Standon Calling invitation.
In October 2015, Indi and The Vegas embarked on a tour of Los Angeles, playing many prestigious venues including The Whisky A Go Go and The Viper Lounge, Hollywood Boulevard and performing with and for Grammy Award winning musicians.
When not performing at prestigious venues, the band love playing events such as weddings. Indi explains this as ‘everyone is up for a party!’ A particular favourite track to play at such special occasions is The Killers’ ‘Mr Brightside’. As for parties in general, Indi states that Prince’s ‘Kiss’ goes down a treat. With a massive playlist of 150 songs plus, the band are happy to learn one cover for an event. However, there is already a vast selection of tracks that can be performed already. In a nutshell, Indi states that the band’s performance is about ‘No cheese or cringe moments. Just great songs played with finesse, but most importantly, with feeling!’
