They’ve created the most intense live show in St. Louis and mastered a danceable sound that blends disco groove with hair metal intensity and pop sensibility. Last Night’s Vice is a five-piece rock band heading to the next musical level with their unstoppable enthusiasm and unfathomable level of energy.
LNV is fastly becoming a crowd favorite in the Midwest’s music scene. Passion and talent mixed with motivation and sheer determination gives the band an edge, making them stand out as a force to be reckoned with. Ticketmaster’s New Music Spotlight recognizes LNV as the band that “commands the stage like rockstars.” As Full Throttle magazine’s Band of the Month, the guys pride themselves on their do-it-yourself mentality, taking charge of their own recordings, websites, videos, promotions and show-bookings. They hit the streets of St. Louis nightly handing out thousands of demos and flyers outside dozens of venues. Fans regularly hear them on iChannel.fm (“playing the best music from artists and bands from around the planet - live 24/7!”) and on 105.7 the Point’s Local Show where music guru Cornbread plays only the hottest bands in the STL local scene.
Not only is it about commanding the stage, but LNV also likes to bring attention to bigger issues at large. The band recently participated in the benefit concert, “Help End Child Slavery in Haiti,” hosted by Lindbergh High School. They brought awareness to the LiveFeed charity organization (a grassroots group dedicated to making sure no child goes to bed hungry) by rocking out at the McKendree University benefit show in Illinois. And they’ll be entertaining the crowd at the upcoming annual Dan Kelley Christmas Show that supports North County Food Pantry & Homeless Shelter in St. Charles. They’re rock guys with hearts.
As long time friends, the band has experienced many changes together, each more valuable than the last. LNV is home to the soulful and powerfully-driven voice of Brandon House. Joe Fitzsimmons and Jordan Phoenix freak out on the guitars with noisy effects influenced by blues riffs while playing over the hip-thumpin’ rhythm section of Chris Blake’s bass and Andrew Ghiassi’s drums. Together, the band gets you off your ass and keeps you dancing. “Funk is smeared all over these guys, it drips from them like sweat, its hard to understand how these white boys fell into such a funky sound, but they do it with precision and soul!” – STLUniverse Review
Collectively, LNV has been thrilled to play with Story of the Year (Maverick), Fall Out Boy (Fueled By Ramen), Bowling For Soup (Jive), Hawthorne Heights (Victory), A Change of Pace (Immortal), Men, Women and Children (Warner Bros.), Lorene Drive (Lobster), Family Force Five (Tooth & Nail), Bedouin Soundclash (SideOneDummy), Calico System (Eulogy), as well as a long West Coast stint of the Vans Warped Tour.

Spotlight Stl interviews Last Nights Vice by Last Nights Vice Lead Vocalist Brandon House described the band’s music to George Clooney as “a mix between Motley Crue and Frank Sinatra meets Daft Punk.” Clooney responded, “So, you’re telling me that you wear tight leather and croon like Frank Sinatra, and you have a drinking problem?”
LNV is the Rock and Roll Report’s band of the week by Last Night’s Vice is unsigned, and weighs in at less than 4,000 MySpace friends, which means they may be one of the most hidden jewels in rock music out there.

Unsigned Artist of the Week: Last Nights Vice by Eat Sleep Breathe Music Upon first listen, I was instantly charmed by the band’s high energy and and catchy hooks. The quintet has a ferocious and powerhouse sound that incorporates a variety of musical influences. Their ambitious mix of rock melodies with soul, funk, and pop creates a unique and delectable musical treat.
“St. Louis music makes a scene” – The Alestle by The Alestle Last Nights Vice can only be described as enigmatic. This charismatically charming band lets the world know that they have a passion for music that will not be denied. Though they are self-described cartoon characters, that does nothing to dissuade people from making Last Nights Vice their musical vice. When a band’s goal is to create music that record stores cannot find a category for, you know they are something special.
