The Vellacos formed through the break-up of a Darlington based band due to the singer leaving. After a fruitless search for a new singer the lead guitarist took on the vocals and a new guitarist was added to the line-up. The sound and direction of the new songs were different from the previous band so it was decided a fresh start and a name change was the best way forward. This is where The Vellacos came to be. The band members are:
Guitar & Vocals: Mark Brown
Drums: Paul Hutchinson
Bass: Paul Hood
Guitar: Chris Prager
We’ve recorded 5 songs of which “Scream Queen” was our first release. One of our songs (Ego) was recently played on BBC Introducing Radio Tees (15-Sept-2018)
We’ve worked very hard and are proud of our tracks and are keen for people to hear them. We are currently working on some new songs and are looking forward to recording these.
