Heading North! – Wayland Tour Log 3/19/14
The final batch of Florida shows on this run are over. The last show, at Aces on St Patty's Day, was one that we'll all remember for a long time. It was a benefit to raise money for an anti-child abuse organization.
We had so many friends come out! Some we've known since our first trip to Florida an…
Goodbye to Big Fancy – Wayland Tour Log 3/6/14
The show was a lot of fun last night. We had a good set but I was so excited to see Zach Myers, Zack Mack, and Chris Allen play. They killed it. At the end of their set we all went up on stage with them and jammed "Take it Easy" by The Eagles and "The Weight" by a…
Heat Wave! – Wayland Tour Log 3/4/14
Last night really escalated quickly. I would love to have watched through the eyes of an outsider as the shenanigans ensued between us and our pals in Bobaflex. When we get together it's like high school kids who's parents have gone on vacation. We can't wait to break every rule we ca…
Ice, Fog and the Great Plains – Wayland Tour Log 3/2/14
Freezing!!! Our bus isn't insulated at all and there are many holes in it. We don't notice when it's sitting still with the heat cranked, but when we're going 70mph across the Kansas in 2 degree weather, it tends to be all we can think about. I can't get warm. I'm in my bunk, in my sleeping bag, und…
Coming Down the Mountain! – Wayland Tour Log 3/1/14
Yesterday was a crazy Friday. We loaded into the club at our usual 5 p.m.
Once we loaded in and sound-checked, Mitch and I started walking to meet our friend Ryan for dinner. It was a 35-minute walk to the Thai restaurant. We laughed the whole way there and talked about out plans for the next few mon…
One Road Up a Mountain! – Wayland Tour Log 2/28/14
Wow! Back in the saddle again! We all spent the three "days off" working from morning to night.
Our days were filled with running errands, getting gear fixed, and booking shows,and planning tour routing. I don't think I set my phone down hardly at all during the break. My plan …
One Road Out of Salt Lake City – Wayland Tour Log 2/22/14
Last night was fantastic in Salt Lake City! There were some little road bumps in sound and production as usual, but nothing team Wayland couldn't overcome. For those instances we have a secret weapon, his name is Chip! Haha! We had a fantastic turn out and the local bands were great to work wit…
