    With influences from the heyday of the 60's and 70's, their sound is equal parts infectious-pop and dark-stomping-blues, combined with their own blend of hope, disappointment, grit, and wit.

    In 2005, when Dave Vicini (lead singer, formerly of The Lot Six) moved into an apartment in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, MA, with Chris Warren (singer/guitarist, formerly of Officer May), the friends already had an idea that they should be in a band together. Their previous bands had shared bills and even covered each other's songs. Before long, six Chuck Taylor boxes full of 4-tracks were recorded in their apartment. Then they decided they should find a band and make a record.

    Viva Viva's reputation has grown steadily over the years, from those apartment recording sessions to the music hall-shaking, band they are today. Dan Burke (bass, formerly of The Lot Six), Fumika Yamazaki-Burdett (keyboard) and Dominic Mariano (drums), complete the sound that is causing a stir in the Boston music scene.

    The Boston Phoenix Music Editor, Michael Marotta wrote, "the legend of Viva Viva has grown exponentially on the shoulders of explosive live performances" in his Fall Arts Preview article. Their unbridled energy can be heard on their debut self-titled album, out on Fort Point Recordings. "Basically we're the second greatest band in the world," says Vicini. "Yeah, second to the Rolling Stones circa '72," adds Warren. "We’re not trying to re-invent the wheel, just keep it rolling," says Warren.
