Redbone: Funky, Native and Classic!

Updated on January 27, 2013

Classic Funky Swamp Rock

One of my all-time favorite bands is Redbone. Their cool, funky rhythms and awesome Pow wow style dancing on the stage is a site to see. Come and get your love right here and listen to some of the best classic swamp funk ever made.

Who are Redbone?

Redbone is a rock band from the 1970s. The band was formed in Los Angeles, California by the brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas, two Native Americans, in 1968.

Come and Get Your Love

What does the Name Redbone mean, anyway?

The name Redbone is a joking reference to a Cajun term for a mixed-race person ("half-breed"), the band's members being of mixed blood ancestry.

It's a Sad Day: Redbone singer and guitarist Lolly Vegas dies at 70

On March 5, 2010 Lolly Vegas, 70, the lead singer and guitarist for Redbone, a Native American swamp rock band died in his sleep Thursday at his home in Reseda.

According to his manager, Michael Stone, he was suffering from lung cancer and had been in poor health since suffering a stroke 15 years ago.

Vegas was born Oct. 2, 1939, in Coalinga, Calif., and grew up in Fresno. He and his brother Pat, a singer and bassist, were session musicians who performed together as Pat and Lolly Vegas in the 1960s at Sunset Strip clubs and on the TV variety show "Shindig!"

In addition to his brother Pat, Vegas is survived by his wife, Risa; his mother, Eloise Vasquez; two other brothers, Ramon and Rudy; and three sisters, Linda, Marie and Theresa.

Rest in peace Lolly, you are missed.
