Vidavox was an instrumental rock band from Miami, Florida. Formed in 2002, "Vidavox drew from jazz, progressive rock, jam band, math rock, and elements of electronica to strike a balance between repetition and development" (CdBaby Reviewer 2005)

Their 2005 self titled release met with positive reviews from the Broward-Palm Beach New Times [1], Decoymusic.com [2], babyblaue-seiten.de (in German) [3], Winterlight (in Japanese) [4]

Vidavox has notably performed with Aloha, Cex, and The Method and Result

They were posthumously awarded "Best Band to Break Up in the Past Year" [5] by the Miami New Times
