Since Low Cut Connie's debut record Get Out the Lotion (NPR’s Fresh Air Top 10 albums of 2011), they’ve firmly established their reputation as one of the most exciting live shows in the US, with Greg Kot (Sound Opinions / Chicago Tribune) exclaiming they are “the essence of what rock n roll should be” and The New York Times stating, “Low Cut Connie’s word-of-mouth legend is built on live shows like this one.” Sweat-drenched, piano-pounding songwriter and frontman Adam Weiner’s writing has been described as “Seventies Stones (but dirtier), the New York Dolls (but tighter) and Jerry Lee Lewis (but Westerberg-ier)” (Rolling Stone).
In 2018, the band, who can already count Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen, and Nick Hornby as fans, received a shoutout from Sir Elton John took the stage at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center.https://www.dspshows.com/event/1861106/
Low Cut Connie made unprecedented strides in 2018 as they released their 5th studio album Dirty Pictures (Part 2) via Contender Records. In August 2018, Low Cut Connie made their network television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers where they performed the rollicking album opener “All These Kids Are Way Too High.” That following month, the band, who can already count Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen, and Nick Hornby as fans, received a shoutout from Sir Elton John took the stage at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Sir Elton John dedicated “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” to the sold out crowd and said, “There’s a band that I love at the moment so much called Low Cut Connie, who are from Philadelphia. And I’d like to dedicate this song to them right now, because I love them very much, and you should check them out. Buy their records, go see them. They’re amazing.”
To kick off 2019, the band was featured in the print edition of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Year In Music” issue with a photo essay chronicling their recent sold out national tour. The publication also named Dirty Pictures (Part 2)’s single “Beverly” one of the 50 Best Songs of 2018, calling it “...the catchiest chorus of a career that’s produced more than a few and a song that could’ve been on the radio in the era it honors.”
As part of their famed First Listen series, NPR Music said, "Across five albums of piano-driven rock and soul, Low Cut Connie has proven masterfully fluent in the foundational languages of Western pop, living at the crossroads where the church house meets the roadhouse, or where the Dew Drop Inn meets CBGB... The blood that pumps through the Philadelphia band's work comes from a place that's fresh, original, and truly pledged to rock and roll."
With more than 120 shows per year, including stops at festivals like Bonnaroo, Bottle Rock, Rock The Garden, Pickathon, Newport Folk Festival and more, Adam Weiner and his punky little band from South Philadelphia continue to dig in their corner of the sandbox. Low Cut Connie light a fire at every show and with every record. Dirty Pictures (part 2) reminds all of us, all the little people, to keep our fires lit at any cost.
Vee Da Bee is a pseudonym for Victoria DeBerry. She was born in Houston, TX and ventured up to NY for college. She has been playing and performing for over 15 years now, and only in the past few years has decided to pursue her passion (which was once a coping skill tbh). During her solo sets, she’ll rock out with loops, shakers, and terrible puns.
During her full-band sets, she’s got the COOLEST dudes ever!
Chris Bedell can be found playing the WILDEST percussion, providing back up vocals and harmonies. Look out for his hand-painted miniatures! They’re pretty awesome.
Paul Vidovich brings those bassy thumps you didn't even know you needed! He also wears the coolest hats...
Mike Parker is the one you’ve gotta watch out for! You won’t be able to look away from his sweet guitar licks, face-melting solos, all put together with his ~flashy~ dance moves.
While they’re being who they are, Vee usually smiles, dances and tries REALLY hard not to trip over her cables.
Her style is eclectic, citing influences like SRV, Fleetwood Mac, Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, George Strait, Marvin Gaye and so many more!
Solo or backed by her mixed bag of dads, it’s an adventure every time you see her!
