I’ll start you off with our title track from our latest album. All of these songs are different & have an influence on me as a writer. They’re favorites from my friends, bands we’ve toured with, & those who inspire me. All great bands, all great writers, & different from the norm.
— Joshua Fleming

The magic for Joshua began the night he went to a Bad Religion concert with his sister, where he was inspired to create his own sound. Catch the Vandoliers onstage this weekend at Smoked Fort Worth, a BBQ showcase of the best Texas barbecue & live music. The all-day celebration will take Fort Worth by storm this Saturday, Oct. 13 from 2 to 6 p.m. in front of the Livestock Exchange Building at the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. It’s a can’t miss & the Fest’s first-annual Fort Worth event.

We’ve got a double win for everyone, on this #MUSICMONDAY! Love a bit of country music & BBQ? Well keep reading, because we’re giving you a treat. Meet Joshua Fleming, the mastermind behind the alt-country band, the Vandoliers. Joshua brought together a group of DFW musicians who felt extremely proud of their marvelous homeland. They put their own spin on Texas country & threw in a dash of punk roots to create a sound that caught Rolling Stone’s attention. This Texas lover wanted to express his love for the great Lone Star State with the new single “The Native.” One listen stirs up memories of “East Dallas dive bars, Pantego pool halls, small towns, big cities, & the rolling ribbon of bluebonnet-covered highway that stretches throughout the state”.
