World Cafe Live welcomes back West Chester’s own WaveRadio, a trio with a big sound, after an impressive debut on the big stage (via self-deployed charter bus!) at Gable Music Ventures’ third annual Wilmo Rock Circus in November.
Thunderous grooves, suspenseful arrangements and huge riffs lay the ground work for the band’s ethereal melodies and hooks.
“It’s (WaveRadio, by WaveRadio) memories in melodies that roll like roadside hills. Songs are shadowy, tinged with grey but able to punch through powerfully. It’s raw rock that’s been polished with a cloth dipped in motor oil.” –Nikki Volpicelli, Philadelphia Area Music Showcase
WaveRadio as you know them is:
Colin McGetrick: Vocals & Guitar
Many of the songs on WaveRadio’s evocative and introspective debut album originated from Colin’s back catalogue of unfinished compositions. Collaborating with James and Chris gave him the perfect opportunity to finish what he started, taking each song to the next level while integrating his imaginative guitar stylings and melodic range of earnest vocalizations. With album number two in view, Colin continues writing music when he’s not busy delivering soulful and captivating performances with WaveRadio.
James McLaughlin: Keyboards
The etherial soundscapes, booming bass lines and classic keys heard on WaveRadio’s debut are all results of James’s innovative approach to playing keyboard centric instruments. His collaboration with Chris and Colin has provided a newly discovered avenue for his song craft, sonic experimentation, writing and performance. James’s enveloping sounds with WaveRadio are as entrancing live as they are on the album.
Chris Cotter: Drums
The pulsing engine of the band, Chris Cotter, drives the thunderous grooves and creative rhythms behind the tracks on WaveRadio’s first album. Working with James and Colin, he has found a way to incorporate his writing and unique drumming style into a truly rhythmic and vastly dynamic band. Chris gives a fully charged powerful performance every time WaveRadio plays. With the second album on the horizon, Chris is readying his ship, TribeSound Records for another epic recording schedule with WaveRadio.
Stereo Box is a dynamic progressive/Jam band from Wilmington Delaware. Formed through long standing musical relationships and personal friendships with-in all the members of the band , this group is pushing the boundries of improvisation and changing the perception of how live music should be perceived in the future. Coupled with straight forward Rock & Roll. Their unique blend of well written and intricate song list that is infused with mind blowing improvisation, sets them apart as one of the most unique, highly talented, and fastest growing groups on the music scene today. Along with the music the band also provides the listener with a visual media to enhance their live show experience.
Glim Dropper is a Philadelphia based original rock trio that formed in late 2008. Comprised of Dan Kauffman (Vocals and Bass), Ben Geise (Guitar), and Rob Schnell (Drums), the trio's sound ranges from reggae and funk to heavier rock. The group, originally known as the Dan Kauffman Band, was assembled by Dan to perform his first independent release "A Human Condition". As the band began to collaborate on song writing, it was decided to rename the band Glim Dropper.
The Late Saints
Led by vocalist, guitarist and kazoo virtuoso Jacopo de Nicola and propelled by Jason Bachman (bass) and Micah Hebbel’s (drums) driving rhythmic section, The Late Saints bring on stage an explosive sonic cocktail, Italian Gypsy Rock style. Treading a path between Lucio Battisti’s baroque pop and the frenetic rhythms of Manu Chao and Gogol Bordello, this Philly based trio manages to charm with infectious songs sung both in Italian and English. Their repertoire includes a wide array of tunes taken from Jacopo’s eclectic original material plus some customized popular covers in which Italian lyrics phonetically morph to resemble the original English ones. One of the band’s trademarks are Jacopo’s driving and inspired kazoo solos, a soul warming tasteful homage to the one man band street music tradition.
