"Mollies Way" started on a street in West De Pere, WI called "Mollies Way", 697 to be exact. It started as nothing more than a Wednesday night friendly jam session after the fallout of the band "Slave in Slave Out" in which it left Peter Kornowski, Josh Peterson, and Joe Cheslock with nothing to do but move on.
Shortly after the SiSo implosion, Zach Dey was recruited to play drums, and move Joe back to his more natural position, guitar.
After learning a slew of SiSo songs, and adding a few cover tunes, a gig at the Brown County Fair was offered, and the guys figured what the heck, and oddly enough it was that moment that gave birth to the guys calling themselves Mollies Way.
So gigs continued, and "The Salt and the Season" their first album of original tunes was made available(and still is) for free on their website. Soon after Zack Dey moved on, and was replaced by a spark plug named Candy Dax.
Never too shy about inflating the truth, Candy helped the guys move around, getting gigs in Chicago, Minneapolis, which fueled the fire to push it even farther. A complete West Coast tour was booked and the group Recorded "The Great Deceiver" a collection of new songs written by the group and served as the motivation to push on to California.
Starting in Seattle, and going down the coast line through Hollywood,(Whiskey a Go Go) and numerous other gigs the band was thanking their brand of music on the road.
After the tour Candy Dax moved on and the band was on a 2 month hiatus.
New Drummer Adam Cain joined the group in November of 2010 and has filled the void, and has made the group wish he was with them since the start. Gigs have followed, and this summer they played their 3rd straight July 4th downtown gig, going 3 hrs straight, and with their 3rd drummer.
In Late July, Josh Peterson, founding member, and bass player has left the band in a mutual decision. New Music is on the horizon, and gigs will follow....
