Background Singer, Piano, Acoustic Guitar, Lead Guitar.


Stealing Vegas is a new grass roots rock band from Charlotte NC whose experienced members are making a serious dent in musicworld local and beyond. The band's sound is described as "polished, tight power pop rock arrangements set to brash, heartfelt lyrics.. a refreshing breath in the music scene".

Veteran musician Chris Brackett,the band's founder, looks forward to sharing Stealing Vegas with audiences. "I have always wanted to rekindle the magic of playing live." Chris states from an interview via phone from his home. "I have been on a road of some serious soul searching musically and really focusing on a group of guys to help complete my vision."

The four-piece consists of Chris Brackett on lead vocals and guitar, Justin Parrish (guitar/electric banjo/ vocals), John "JP" Patterson (bass, vocals), and Tony Lanuto on drums. Stealing Vegas is a contemporary, buzzing pop-rock sound that hearkens back to the popular song driven alt-rock of TONIC and MATCHBOX 20.

Relentless walls of guitars dipped in angelic, spine trembling vocal harmonies, are Stealing Vegas' calling card. "I am truly fortunate to have toured and shared the stages with many fine artists and those influences help me craft a new band and a new direction. It's a great time for Stealing Vegas and I'm excited about presenting my passion to fans and friends."
