We’re excited to be heading back to The Glad Cafe, Glasgow on Saturday 9th June 2018!
Get your tickets here: http://bit.ly/2Dv3DWB and come join us for a night of rock ‘n’ roll.
We’ll be playing songs you know from our self-titled album, released in 2016, and previewing some new music.
If that wasn’t enough, this is bound to be a very special night for other reasons, as for the first time we’ll be joined by Chris Smith on drums. Chris has previously worked with Big Country, Nazareth and Dougie MacLean and we’re thrilled he’s joining us!
We’re wishing you all a happy new year and all the best for 2018!
There’s currently a *very* limited number of Signed CDs remaining in the Veloninos.com Shop.
This is our self-titled album released in February 2016, signed by us on the inside sleeve, featuring all six tracks from the previously released digital EP and four brand new tracks “Red Diesel Medicine”, “Preacherman”, “These Quiet Lands” and “Hillbilly Girl”.
Avoid disappointment by visiting the Veloninos.com Shop to get your copy before they’re gone!
We’ve added a brand new “Road Rash, Rhythm ‘N’ Bop!” t-shirt to our Music Glue store!
These t-shirts have a bold circular print across the chest, with “Road Rash, Rhythm ‘N’ Bop!” written around the edge in bright yellow, and a vibrant red guitar with our logo in the middle.
