Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys is an Austin soul band blending elements of rock, funk, and old-school R&B. Front person/vocalist Akina Adderley lights up the stage as "the little woman with the big voice." Granddaughter of jazz trumpet great Nat Adderley, grandniece of jazz saxophone legend "Cannonball" Adderley, and daughter of Nat Adderley, Jr. (producer/pianist/band leader for Luther Vandross), Akina brings a distinguished musical pedigree to the Vintage Playboys, who are a tight group from an eclectic musical background. The brainchild of four inspired musicians, AAVP is now a powerhouse nine-piece, and has become a vital part of Austin's newly resurrected soul scene. The band has been together for nearly four years, and has shared bills with such acts as Big Sam's Funky Nation, Budos Band, and Carolyn Wonderland. The band's credits include: showcases at SXSW '09 and '10; performances for Radio Without Borders on Austin's KUT 90.5 FM, News 8 Austin's Summer Rooftop Series, and Balcony TV Austin; road shows in Memphis, TN, Los Angeles, CA, Santa Barbara, CA, Shreveport, LA, Hattiesburg, MS, Northport, AL, and all over Texas. AAVP's eponymous debut album was released on March 28, 2009. The band is currently working on their sophomore album, scheduled for a Spring 2011 release.
