How many siblings can honestly say they get along most of the time? The majority would probably respond with a resounding “no”, but when you’re the Velasquez brothers of The V-Knights, they would definitely say, “Hell yeah, we do!” On Friday, March 24, at Phoenix’ legendary bar Cactus Jack’s, not only did they prove they get along, but their charisma and rock star qualities gelled seamlessly on stage. 


The V-Knights - lead guitarist Gabe 23, drummer & lead singer Alex 20 and bassist Nicolas (Nico) 17 - are nothing short of extraordinary. Brothers first. Rockers second. They truly brought down the house, took no prisoners and displayed bona fide passion, heart and soul, and they’re just getting started. 


These gifted musicians are currently working on recording various tracks for their new album. Many of the songs they played that night are included in the following setlist. Check it out.



“Punished By Love”

“Angels Of Tears”

“In The Red”

“Kissin’ Kitty”

“Beats Walking”

“Bad Luck Charm”



“Good Girls”

“No Pressure”

“Cheap Talk”
