About: Vulture Whale was formed when former Verbena drummer and guitarist Les Nuby joined Wes McDonald (aka Terry Ohms of The Ohms) to create a new Birmingham collective. A few years, five albums and hundreds of live shows later, and Vulture Whale has emerged as one of the most popular bands from the Magic City music scene. In addition to Nuby on lead guitar and vocals and McDonald on vocals and guitar, Vulture Whale includes Keelan Parrish on bass and Jake Waitzman on drums.
