Welcome

at the homepage of the bluegrass band VEGET. You haven't heard about us? It doesn't matter. We will provide you some brief information right here (there is also information for organizers available):

  • First of all, do not think we are vegetarians. The name of the band does NOT reflect our eating habits.
  • We are 263 years old (aproximately). The average age is 52,6 years.
  • People call our music country, folk, bluegrass and many others. But we think, that our music can't be labeled as one style. Try to listen on your own.
