Wyatt Olney and the Wreckage

Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage is a hard rock quartet from Seattle, WA. Formed in 2015, the group quickly rose to prominence in the Pacific Northwest and surrounding territories after the release of the debut album Dark Futures in 2016. Over the course of 2016, the band went from playing basements to performing to a sold-out Showbox Market (1200 capacity) alongside Seattle rock giants Windowpane and Van Eps.

The 2017 release of the anthemic sophomore album Welcome To Seattle was met with widespread acclaim and led to regular rotation on local radio stations and headlining performances at 99.9 KISW’s Red Festival and several other major music festivals.

The band works closely with charitable organizations – specifically those involved with funding research for Multiple Sclerosis. In 2018, Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage partnered with 99.9 KISW to launch F*MS! – an annual benefit showcase at the legendary Seattle nightclub The Crocodile to raise funding for MS research.

In late 2019, the band announced the upcoming release of their third album Silver Bullet – due for worldwide release in June 2020, with an accompanying tour and several summer festival performances to follow.

 

Wicked Garden

Wicked Garden started out in 2010 specializing in the five most influential grunge bands of all time, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and Stone Temple Pilots. After amassing over three hours of set list hits from these five chart topping bands, they have performed these songs all over Minnesota and surrounding states. In late 2014 and early 2015, two founding members moved on from Wicked Garden to pursue more family time and other interests. John Gensmer, Ryan Gaskill, and Jamie Norman joined up with Wally and Jeff Borgan to form a new lineup with more versatility.

After listening to the requests at several shows prior, the newly revamped band decided to expand the set list to include several other artists from the 90′s Grunge Era, as well as Grunge influenced artists that are chart topping today, such as Tool, Foo Fighters, Queens of The Stone Age, etc.

The goal of today’s Wicked Garden is to appeal to today’s generation of concert goers, as well as fans of the 90′s era, which is certain to grow the fanbase to a level that was unreachable by sticking to the limitations of the original five band plan. The band wants fans to be able to expect new songs when they see Wicked Garden return to their favorite venue. The goal is to have an extensive catalog to keep the shows fresh, and to keep fans engaged and excited for what may come next time around. For the venues that the band performs back to back nights, the band will have a different set for each night to keep fans coming back for more the second night.

 

Two Zero Six

“TwoZeroSix” is comprised of 5 amazing NW musicians: Jeff Druzianich (Vocals) Dan Scott (Bass) Lonnie Smith (Drums) Grant Anderson (Guitar) and Scott McAllister (Guitar) who bring years of experience to the stage. They consider themselves a tribute to The Sound of the NW. They are not a look alike tribute (not to say they won’t be dawning their flannel and Doc Martins) but rather a tribute to the music they love, the music that shook the Seattle area and put Seattle on the map musically. TwoZeroSix works very hard to ensure that they sound just like the recordings and tap into those memories for all the fans of the music of Seattle.
“The music that touches you in your youth is magnified when you get older. Each record can be a virtual time machine – all you need is to hear a second or two and you go back to that place and time when you first heard it. It’s a brilliant feeling when music touches you so profoundly and stays with you through time.” Quote by Rob Halford

Bad Reputation
