The Tubes and The Persuasions Enter Into Distribution Agreements with Wolfgang’s Vault, January 25, 2008


January 25, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - Wolfgang’s Vault, the online destination for live music, announced today agreement with veteran recording artists The Tubes and The Persuasions to distribute archival concert recordings for download at The arrangement between the bands and Wolfgang’s Vault provides an innovative forum for these legacy artists to make available to their fans rare, historic recordings and to distribute their music to a larger community of music fans who visit

The Tubes: A wild mix of progressive rock theater, multimedia, and scathing social criticism of America’s television culture, the Tubes were unquestionably one of the most outrageous groups to surface in the Bay Area. As their name suggests, the Tubes based their performances on the surreal, alternate reality of television in which anything could happen and nothing was off limits.

The Persuasions: The story of the Persuasions, in many ways, is as exceptional as the sound they created: five guys from entirely different parts of the country - and five distinct but complementary musical backgrounds - coming together on the corners of New York’s Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood in the early 1960s to form one of America’s most unique vocal ensembles.

Said Bill Sagan, CEO of Wolfgang’s Vault: “The music industry is changing very quickly in this digital age, and artists are looking for new ways to make their music heard. Organically, Wolfgang’s Vault has become a community where people dig deeper into artists’ work, and connect on a new level. We are happy to promote and support these important artists and provide a unique forum for the distribution of these rare recordings.”
