This event is 21 and over
Waylon Speed is the convergence of four musicians from Burlington, Vermont, bringing their unstoppable no frills country-metal blend of rock to a rapidly growing horde of devoted fans nationwide. The formation of this band could not have come at a better time. Seemingly overnight, they have become a staple in the music community, equipped with a full pallet of all original music. Since their formation in April 2009, Waylon Speed has been touring extensively and picking up new fans like truck tires pick up mud. In support of their debut release, Georgia Overdrive, Waylon Speed toured the east coast of the US two times over. They have a nationwide tour planned for 2011 in support of their sophomore release 'Horseshoes and Hand Grenades'. Members have shared bills with national touring acts such as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Blues Traveler, Little Feat, My Morning Jacket, Junior Brown, Del McCoury, and Les Claypool. With relentless determination and positive driven attitudes, Waylon Speed is setting the bar for originality and genre-stepping with a firm rooted belief that live music has been, still is, and will always remain alive and well worldwide. "Gas on the fire of the current music scene,"It's heavy, fiery country rock, for those who like their punk rock with some twang in it — but also appreciate high quality, intelligent songwriting" "Waylon Speed is not all that different from metal, punk or any other style of music that's got a knife-in-the-boot attitude" to name just a few things being said in the press to describe this perfectly formulated foundation of true brotherhood known as Waylon Speed.
