The Vacancies are a Punk/Rock band with a purpose, which is speaking up for individual rights, freedom and hope for the "working man/woman". Catchy melodies, fierce guitars and a driving backbeat give them a sound that is reminiscent and fresh at the same time. Members Billy Crooked (vocals), Michael James (guitar/vocals), BO (bass), Dave (guitar/vocals) and Kevin (drums) bring a mix of influences ranging from classic punk/hardcore, 50's rock, 70's rock/glam and reggae to the writing table. These boys have been developing and spreading their infectious sound since 1998 from their hometown of Cleveland Ohio.
