Vanguard Party is a rock band from Space. Currently operating from an outpost in Durham, NC, Vanguard Party provides melody driven rock music for the citizens of Earth. Their music blends soaring vocals with innovative guitar work, classical piano motifs, driving bass and pounding drums. Their exciting live performances are as precise as they are aggressive.
Vanguard Party began as a failed rocketry experiment when Alex Jergensen (guitar) and Matt Lawless (bass) plummeted to Earth after their space capsule disintegrated upon reentry over the skies of Durham. They knew the time was right to form an explosive rock band. Alex's long time friend and multi-media creative virtuoso Derek Rowe (vocals/piano) immediately teleported from Orlando, FL to Durham. A careful scan of the sector revealed Josh Brackett (drums) as the perfect percussionist to propel the band.Vanguard Party is everything you want in a rock band. Words. Music. Excitement. Space travel. For fans of Muse, Queen and Foo Fighters.
