Victor Spoils is a band both energetic and delicate, passionate and precise, marrying energy and melody.
The five-headed Cincinnati creature gestated in 2014, when heavy hitter Dan Newman and jukebox guitarist Nick Federinko, both born May 24th, needed a singer for a birthday show with bassist Doug Lee. Dan called his old bandmate, Josh Neugebauer, out of retirement, not unlike Rambo. Josh, singing and writing since he was a teenager, toured with Dan in A Day Late, seeing the East Coast, getting Chicago radio airplay, and entertaining troops in the Middle East.
From the first rehearsal, the cohesion of melody and firepower was stunning. But bigger guns were needed – Josh called A Day Late’s lead guitarist, Aaron Ellis, to bring the key artillery to the sonic arsenal. Let there be leads! Let there be guitarmony!
In 2015, the full lineup made their debut at a Bunbury after-show at the Southgate House Revival, and were stunned by the support of old friends, new fans, and anyone with a love for a good old fashioned rock show.
Victor Spoils kept playing and building, as their friends at MVP’s Rock Bar – a rejuvenated Never on Sundays – helped them land opening slots with Mike Tramp of White Lion, Blessid Union of Souls, and Brandon Gibbs. They played live on Class X 88.9 FM. They self-released live videos. They acquired a tour bus. And the band began saving money from four hour bar gigs to fund an expedition to Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago. That November, a six song EP was laid to tape – the bulk of a forthcoming full-length vinyl.
This year, the band is touring the Midwest – and anywhere their wheels will take them – in search of good people with a taste for rich brews and an ear for both familiar warmth and energetic firepower – a world where everyone is a Victor.

Primarily an original blues band, playing blues as well as other classic rock favorites. Mark Duncan (bass player) and Jerry Toms (drums) have been playing together in different bands since 2001. John Bays (lead guitar/vocals/song writing) brings a shredding lead guitar, he also does most of the writing of our originals. If you like the pure sound of a three piece band, you’ll like Stone Kold.
