9 Bands With Utah Connections

One of the many things I love about Utah is the music scene. Yeah, it’s seen ups and downs over the past 24 years (as long as I’ve been paying close attention), but we have a really cool scene. As a teenager, my favorite venue was the basement of DV8 (RIP). It was a place that not only allowed me to see some of my favorite bands of the 90’s, but it also gave my friends and I a chance to put our own bands on stage to show the SLC music scene what we had. Same goes for my favorite venue from a little later in life: Velour. If DV8 gave me the bug, Velour actually gave me the opportunity to live my rock star fantasy. I honestly can’t remember how many times my band, Foolish Pete (shameless plug), played Velour, but it was fun every single time… and we had pretty good crowds there too.

The point? We have a great little music scene here in Utah. The best part is that Utah has ties to some pretty cool bands…
