Last American Virgins represent a return to the ideals that once made rock music great. Mating raw intensity and cocksure swagger with unforgettable melodies, they give birth to a style that is instantly familiar, yet all their own. Band members Jason Klug (vocals), Jesse James Salucci (drums), Bradford Tukey (guitar), and Matt Hampson (bass) were drawn together in 2002 in Syracuse, NY by a common vision: to create timeless rock and roll. The Last American Virgins believe in the virtue of a sparse and thunderous drum beat, in the innocence of a softly sung passage, in the purity of power chords played through raging amplifiers. Above all else they believe that their music is the sound of your rock and roll soul being saved.
Despite their name, these young men are by no means virgins to the stage. They have performed in many local and regional venues and opened for national recording artists EVE6, Fountains of Wayne, and Tantric. Even MTV has taken notice by signing on to use songs from their debut album Not So Secret Plan its series Power Girls. With the release of the record in January 2005, fans of pure American rock and roll are quickly joining the revival. These achievements, combined with work on a follow-up album will no doubt aid them in their pursuit of a recording contract.
Listen to the music. See them live. Witness their talent for songwriting, their drive to succeed, and their charisma in winning an audience. The Last American Virgins have arrived, and they will not be denied.
