One Question Interviews: Vandoliers

Josh Fleming (Vandoliers)

SPB: Take us through your gear setup from your last tour? 

Fleming: We roll around the country as a six-piece band, stuffing everything in to the back of a Ford Transit named Vannah Montana. I play a Gibson SJ200 and SJ100 ‘cause they are giant and I love swinging them around, Dustin our lead guitarist plays a blue Telecaster and Les Paul trad pro through an old Orange Thunderverb 100 and a 2X12 Vox cab with V30’s. Mark our bassist rolls with a pair of Guild Starfires (just like Murry Hammond from Old 97’s), Guyton our drummer plays a one up two low, five piece Ludwig kit from the ‘70s with a soundguy-approved 26” kick drum, Cory twiddles his fingers on all 88 keys of a Korg SV1 and our fiddle player saws across a fiddle that was given to him by Bryan Duckworth, the fiddle player from Robert Earl Keen.
