Greetings Wayside fans!  Happy New Year! Rob here. Tons of news afoot.

For starters, Chris got married a few days after Christmas. Congrats to Chris & Maureen, and sorry, ladies. 

With some of that wedding and holiday money, Chris went out and got himself an electric guitar amp. Chris pretends to mainly be an acoustic guitar player, but anyone who has seen him shred on a Telecaster knows otherwise. He’ll be debuting the new amp and effects pedal setup at upcoming gigs, so come out and hear him test drive some fat and funky sounds.

Speaking of gigs, we’ve got a few. We return to the main stage of The Legendary Dobbs on Feb 2 at 10 pm. A week later, on Feb 9, we play ICAC Hall in Gloucester City, around 8 pm.  After that, we’re back in Philly to play an acoustic gig at Manny Brown’s on Friday, March 1, and then we’ll be on stage at Connie’s Ric Rac on March 30 at 10 pm.

The Legendary Dobbs - Feb. 2nd, 2013



ICAC Hall - Feb. 9th, 2013


There are some new songs in the works. Some of you may have heard one or two of them at other shows, some which will be hitting the stage for the first time at one of these gigs. Come on out and let us know what you think.

Because we’ve got so many new tunes, we’re looking to play some slightly longer sets. The livehouses around town will give us 45 minutes, and our acoustic gigs rely heavily on covers. If you’ve got a living room, a backyard, a garage, or a basement, and you’d like to invite 50 of your friends over to watch us stretch our legs and let the jams roll, drop us a line. With Chris shredding and Eric working his magic on keys, we can melt some portion of your face for, I don’t know, somewhere between 90 minutes and 3 hours. We might even take a request.

Finally, what do bands do when they start putting together new songs? You guessed it. They make an album. We’ll be heading into the studio in mid-Feb to start laying down tracks, and we hope to have a whole mess of new material by summer, so stay tuned for that. It’s time. We are due.

Thanks everybody! Hope to see you soon.

"Raible, D’Antonio and Volansky all contribute to lyrics, which means three different perspectives on all aspects of life including relationships to commentary to the realities of adulthood. Furthermore, they deliver Americana music with a little bit of edge, funk, old fashioned, rock and roll, and everything in between with full force. Nothing is done halfheartedly."  Melissa Duong, That Mag

"The band came together through high school connections and the magic of Craigslist. Chris and Rob were playing acoustic shows for a while, but eventually wanted more. This lineup played its first show together after literally one rehearsal. Three hours in the basement plus nine songs plus a 45-minute set. How do you do that math? We went right into the deep end, no goggles, nothing. It worked out. We’ve been playing in Philly and Jersey ever since."  Vents Mag

"I know good music when I hear it! This is a modern all american rock band rooted in multitude of musical places. Capturing so many styles and genres, a true mixture and "shakeup" on the norm, "The Wayside Shakeup" is what happens when creative and talented artists get together and stay true to their pasts and the music that inspires them. With their own unique sound and cult following forming, I predict they will only continue to get bigger and better."  Christopher Kellz, The Watchtower
