Inside Info: Wayne

Wayne is the “other” guitar player in the band and is very happy to have 2 lead singers in the band as this allows more time to focus his attention to the on-stage joking that takes place during each show. If you pay close attention you will notice that other band members (mostly Zach) do…

Over the next six weeks, we will introduce you to each band member, including the instrument(s) they play, how long they have been performing, and whatever else would seem appropriate for the page. “We…

Postponed Shows
