“One of the most ground-breaking groups in Blues/Rock “ (Classic Rock Magazine).

Michael Vdelli is the front man and namesake of the band VDELLI. Having spent more than 35 years mastering his craft, Michael has become one of the leading exponents of his art in the world.

Combine this with his raw and captivating vocals, Michael’s stage presence and energy continues to mesmerise audiences around the globe.
Joining Michael on stage, are internationally renowned musicians, Ric Whittle on drums and Leigh Miller on bass who both have a string of accolades to their names. Together, this dynamic trio is a musical tour de force!

VDELLI have worked with some of the greats in the industry including the likes of BB King, Buddy Guy, ZZ Top and most recently two shows with George Thorogood in Perth. The band’s two epic performances at Sweden Rock proved their ability to cut it on the big stage and beyond.
In 2014, the band moved to Hamburg, Germany, to keep their reputation as one of the hardest working road bands in the world intact. The band remained in Europe until 2020 gaining growing audiences and glowing reviews.

Now back in Australia due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band used the time to get creative and smash out what clearly is their most impressively diverse studio album to date. The release of the album “NOW” is the culmination of years on the stage, in the studio and on the road – and it shows.

“The Australian blues guitar master Michael Vdelli released his seventh album with “Now”. Overall, the focus of the Vdelli blues – whether rocking or ballad-like – is the intensity. Vdelli has the blues and delights the listener. Vdelli again convinces with “Now”. “Now” is impressive. “Now” is a highlight!”
Joachim “Joe’ Brookes – ROCKTIMES.

“The Australian Michael Vdelli, who is hip in Europe, returns after five years with NOW and combines earthy hard rock, boogie and blues into a tasty and rousing brew. A multifaceted cocktail full of surprises.”

“The new album is a variegated collection of songs that utilise the blues genre’s entire expanse of possibilities. …Vdelli can efficiently and persuasively talk the talk… an inarguable display of musicianship and artistic focus, one that such a musical classification requires. …culturally and historically significant…”
