Episode 31A: Vax Lavala

Isamu Jordan / The Spokesman-Review

Formerly known as Big Wang Theory, the Cheney High School kids in Vax Lavala are frontrunners in the all-ages scene. These guys are oodles of talent that should make their older peers in the local scene nervous. While they dropped Adam Brock’s kid-sister keyboards, they still get bonus points for their super-secret weapon, the very non-ska trombonist John “Big Cheese” Weisgerber. Vax Lavala was among the RAWK Final Four and was the runner-up for BOBfest this year. Last year they wrote and performed a one-night-only rock opera called “The War,” and they’ve got a new rock opera in the works following their upcoming album “Vaxination.” It has something to do with turtles and bats. Not baseball bats, but not vampire bats either. Potentially two rock operas before they get their diplomas. C’mon!
