Ian Valor

Ian Valor & The Vendettas are a rock band based in the Twin Cities. The band consists of Ian Valor (guitar/vocals), Jeremy “Mel” Melzer (bass), and John Suihkonen (drums). They deliver their own style of kicked up, old school rock’n’roll with heavy dustings of rockabilly, punk, and blues.

Starting out as a Misfits cover band called “The Misprints”, the group would meet after work in the back room of a Minneapolis warehouse to play. In 2017, they formed Ian Valor & The Vendettas and started to play shows around the Twin Cities, cutting their teeth on a month-long residency at 331 Club. Since the recording of their debut, All Riot All Right, the group has played extensively, supporting artists like The Bad Man, Low Rats, and Daddy Long Legs at 7th St Entry.
