The Wait, with their latest single charting number one locally, and top 40 nationally on ReverbNation, the online platform for artists to advance their careers with more than 3.8 million members. The band took to the stage Saturday night at The Orlando Brewing Company at 1301 Atlanta Ave in South Orlando, Florida. They just wrapped up recording their new LP of 12 new songs, which is scheduled for release April 15, 2018. The early success of the new single has shot new life into the group whom have recently reunited in 2017 after going their own ways twenty years earlier.
Songwriters and bandmates, Don Rowe lead guitar, Terry McMahon lead vocals, and Gregg Saxonis on drums, came together in Boston Massachusetts in 1988. Then set out on the road by management to Orlando in 1989. Once in Florida, they kept recording material and became a headliner throughout Central Florida, until 1997. Their Rock / Indie or alternative rock music style, lead to opening for The Romantics to Foghat.
With added members, Randy Cook keyboards/backing vocals, Mike Knarreborg guitar/backing vocals, and Vince Heyer on bass, the bands maturity and three part harmonies makes for a full sound. Saturday night’s show highlighted the band’s past and present work with “Firewall”, “Stay in Love”, “World Without You”, and the newest hit single “One Day is Now”.
From the show I witnessed Saturday, it appears that experience is paying off. The show was refreshing and what Central Florida needs right now. I can honestly say, it has been well worth The Wait!
