All 3 players came from established Denver-based bands; Megan (aka GoGo) Wise played the cocktail drum kit with cow-punk legend, Buckwild while finishing her degree in music performance. Susan Phelan also played with Buckwild, and hard-rockers Rexway. She currently plays with singer/songwriter Angie Stevens and the Beautiful Wreck. Tony "Nascar" Asnicar started playing in the Denver scene in 2005 with the country band, The Calf Branders with Lance Bakemeyer of the Hillbilliy Hellcats, then was hired on by the hard-country band, The Railbenders. Megan and Susan discovered they had a mutual love of jazz, country, blues, surf, and exotica and wanted to put together a small combo that somehow incorporated all these styles. Although known only for his country guitar work, they discovered Tony also shared their eclectic musical tastes and asked him to join them. Tony began writing all the original tunes trying to mix all these styles. Under the influence of perhaps one too many Mai-Tais, Vibes On Velvet became a unique blend of Lionel Hampton, Henry Mancini, Martin Denny, The Ventures, and Chet Atkins. Here's music with the wonderful, silvery tone of the vibes, with darker colors of a jazzy guitar and powerful upright bass.
