About


A funny thing happened on the way to the future…

Musical scholars have a hard time pinpointing where (and when) the plot for Vanillaphase was hatched. Leading theories run the gamut from the backwaters of Texas to the beaches of California to gambling dens in Monaco to a temporal vortex that suddenly opened up over the leaden skies of late pandemic-era Lake Erie. While the origins of this misfit musical outfit remain hazy, what is crystal clear is their obsession with bass that bumps, beats that thump, and songs that make you shake your rump. 

G3 (vocals, AI), Nico Denaldo (guitars, vocals, throwing knives), Rick Taggert (synths, vocals, bullwhip), and Taylor “Paco” Ripley (bass, synths, vocals, cutlass) come from all corners, and take on all comers, committed to the credo that when it comes to art, the only rule is “there are no rules”. When this colorful cast of cosmic rapscallions musk up, strap on their eclectic instruments, and the ice cubes get to tinkling in their Scotch glasses, there is no territory Vanillaphase will not traverse in the name of cheap thrills, interstellar harmony, and sonic seduction. Grab your double cassette boom box, slather on the SPF 50, and hop onboard…this boat is guaranteed to be rocking.
