Wavytrain has a show on 09/20/2014 at 09:45 PM @ Foggy Mountain Brew Pub in Asheville, NC http://www.reverbnation.com/q/53pasq #concert


“Wavytrain is a band based out of NC, & evidence that you can be whatever genre you need to be. Cal Taylor is founder, songwriter, singer & guitarist. He is flanked by two lead guitarists, Nick Weaver, who has a more edgy, D Trucks rock style, & Charlie Trexler, who brings jazzy fusion noodling a la Scofield or Anastasio. Josh Rutherford is a HammondB3 & Rhodes player, who brings a Brent Mydland/Merl Saunders sound to the fray. These guys are held together by former funk players Mo Garlin & Mario Ellis(drums/bass) who hold the pocket together like a funky beat machine. What makes this band unique-and interesting-is that no genre can peg them. Taylor's originals are influenced by Steely Dan, The Stones, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Phish, EW&Fire...& the esoteric covers they play can take you everywhere from the Gap Band to Rage vs the Machine to Outkast & back to Led Zep before you know what happened. Nice to see a multi-racial/genre band work together to make you dance yet keep you guessing.”
