Upcoming show: Friday August 10th, Wing Hub, Bethesda MD


We're keeping the performance train rolling with another show, this time on a Friday night, in Bethesda MD. We'll be playing with our bassist's younger brother for his birthday, a show that is sure to be of epic proportions. The place is at 4914 Cordell Avenue, and the show starts promptly at 8:30pm. We're up first, so come out and join us for some zesty wings and tasty tunes.

For more updates, check out our facebook page.

For deets on the other 2 acts, check out Shake Dog and Noah Silver.

Upcoming show: July 18th at Acre 121

We will be playing a 45-minute set at Acre 121 on Wednesday July 18.  The venue is right next to the Columbia Heights Metro Station.  The stakes are high: multiple bands will play, and the audience will get to vote for their favorite band at the end of the night.  The winner will get paid -- and, more importantly, the winning band will be offered a weekend show at Acre 121. We go on at 9 p.m., so please come out on the 18 and show the Cycle some love!

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for coming out to see us at Acre 121. Thanks to your support, WE WON THE BAND SHOWCASE!!!

We have been invited back for a weekend show TBD.

Thanks also to all of the great acts that played with us: Elena and Los Fulanos, Nobody’s Business, and The Justin Fung Band.

Also thanks to Acre 121 for hosting us and having delicious BBQ.

Thanks for coming!

The band would like to thank all our fans who braved the 100-degree heat, high-humidity, and healthy distance from thenearest Metro station to see us play our first gig with the new lineup on Thursday night at Del Ray Music Week.  Jasper has only been with us for about a month, and I was only 10 days removed from an operation, but the crowd and venue seemed to dig us.  Our demos and performance seem to be getting us noticed, so look out for more shows over the coming months.

The Cycle preps for the Del Ray Music Festival

We are excited to report that The Vico Cycle was selected to play Del Ray Music Week!  The schedule is out, and we are on it. (In fact, the schedule has a link to this site - so if you are visiting our page for the first time, welcome! Feel free to check out some of our tracks.) This musical exhibition is part of the festivities leading up to the Del Ray Music Festival in Alexandria, VA.  We will take the stage on Thursday, June 21 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.  Details on our location and time-slot can be found here.  We look forward to playing songs across our wide repertoire spanning rock, blues, funk, soul, and hip-hop. Hope to see you there.

Welcome Jasper!

If you were interested in drumming for us, I'm afraid it's too late: The Vico Cycle would like to welcome Jasper to our active family!  He is a rocket scientist in training and a quick study. We are excited to have him.

The Cycle Keeps Rolling...

Much has gone down since our last update.  We lost an original member, as Fabrizio is moving to the bright(er) lights of New York City for a better day job than the one he had here in D.C.  The Vico Cycle will miss him, and we wish him the best of luck. However, he left us a parting gift: studio drum tracks.  We have utilized his gift to something that was frankly long overdue: we recorded studio demos!  The first two have been released on our Facebook page over the past two weeks; you can also listen to them here.  We will be releasing a couple more in the coming days/weeks.  It took us a while (and some continuity) to realize that we really needed some studio polish to give people a better demonstration of what we can do.  They aren't alum-ready, but they are light-years ahead of any previous recordings you've ever heard from us.  Go ahead and take a listen.


Band Update: The Cycle Rolls Again

After a summer of upheaval and change, The Vico Cycle is back practicing and writing new tunes to play soon at a place near you.  We have more lineup changes to announce: during the past several months, Derek and The Vico Cycle parted ways. Since then, guitarists Galen and Greg joined the band at the end of summer and the middle of fall respectively.  We'd like to extend them a warm welcome, and we are all excited by the creativity and new tunes the band is putting together as we get the engine rumbling again.  Stay tuned for details on our re-launch, which will probably take place within weeks at a open mic near you!
