Artist In Residence - June 2011 - The WandasDetermined to bring back the musicality and work ethic of the 1960s & 70s, The Wandas cut their teeth on their last album, New Wave Blues, then self released the LP and backed it up with a year and a half of touring in their 20 year old 30 foot RV that doubled as their home for the near 2 year road stint. Spanning 40 U.S. states and 200+ shows, The Wandas grew their fan base from the ground up; one brick at a time. From DIY basement shows to theaters, they left no potential fan untouched.
