Jim Vegas CD Release "Rock N Roll Ain't Cheap"

Roots Musician Jim Vegas will release his 3rd album "Rock N Roll Ain't Cheap" on Goonzy Magoo Records May 13th. Available on Amazon & I-tunes

Wichita, KS, April 27, 2016 --( Jim Vegas: Rock N Roll Ain't Cheap

Roots Musicians' new album showcases contemporary songwriting. (To be Released Via Goonzy Magoo Records on May 13th 2016.)

"Jim Vegas sits squarely in the space where blues & jazz meet at the crossroads with a light drizzle of fuzzed out electric guitar rolling in over the horizon"- Torin Andersen- F5 Paper

Jim Vegas’ forthcoming album “Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap” (Goonzy Magoo Records) highlights his artful songwriting, guitar playing, and ability to convey deep emotional experiences, which have made him a favorite of many Midwest music fans.

Vegas, currently residing in Kansas (long time fans remember his days in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Denver) describes the 12-song set as “modern blues and jazz based songs with an emphasis on strong lyrical content” — his discography, includes two previous albums under his own name and one with former Los Angeles based band Budhi Brown.

“Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap”, which follows last years “The Bullfight is in our Heads”, explores Vegas’ sophisticated writing and playing style, creating a new chapter in his musical catalogue. The album features special guests: H2 Quartet’s sax man Geoffrey Deibel, and Carter Green (From the Cajun Band The Mudbugs) who also engineered the album.

Although Vegas’ releases always reflect his musical roots — which go back to his discovery of blues as a child – “Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap” is somewhat of a departure. Using tradition as a springboard instead of a crutch, he incorporates his version of jazz, pop, blues, rock, funk and soul onto a canvas for his poetic lyrics and emotionally charged vocals.

All of the music and the lyrics on “Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap” come directly from Vegas, who also gives a nod to New Orleans and Bo Diddley inspired rhythms on tracks like “Nashville Heart”, classic Funk on “Waiting For Something to Come”, and even gospel on “The Mirror & Me.”

The Engineer captured Vegas’ slightly overdriven Sheraton guitar tones, which run through a Fender Princeton Reverb and Swart Atomic Tube Tone amp simultaneously.

Vegas who believes songwriting is a craft, says, “If you work every day at something you’re going to get better. I think my writing on this album contains some of the best songs I’ve ever created.”

Vegas and his band will be having a cd listening/ release party at Barleycorn’s in Wichita the evening of the release (Friday May 13th) and have a number of shows lined up to support the album, both in Wichita and throughout the Midwest. In addition to the live dates, Vegas will be releasing a two promotional videos shot by Digital Brand. (Youtube links: and )
