"The whole spirit of improvisation – that's always been the cornerstone of this band for me," says singer, songwriter and guitarist James Nash. "Through all the stylistic changes and regardless of the instruments we're playing, to me the fun of this band has always been that in some ways I can do whatever I feel like doing at any moment."
A four-piece with a full arsenal of acoustic and electric instruments, the band has been praised by the Chicago Tribune for their "near-ideal balance of irreverence, chops, discipline, and originality." The folk and roots underpinnings that have long been a Waybacks hallmark are still there, but after years of playing a huge range of venues and festivals, touring with the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, and reconfiguring themselves around the hot guitar of James Nash and the fiddle virtuosity of Warren Hood, The Waybacks are enjoying a refreshed repertoire – one that's touched by Memphis soul, honky-tonk, Parisian swing, classical music, vintage blue pop, jam rock, and beyond. Nash and Hood have stepped forward as songwriters, allowing The Waybacks to find a new collective voice, right before our ears.
Driven by the rhythm section of bassist Joe Kyle Jr. and drummer Chuck Hamilton, the band filters genre through its own sensibilities and ends up transcending it altogether, conjuring up musical landscapes that defy boundaries and find common ground. Add in those spirited flights of improvisation and a healthy dose of jaw-dropping chops and what emerges in the end is decidedly Waybacks. A trip well worth taking.
“These guys can play like bandits.” - Ray Waddell, BILLBOARD
“ ... geniuses … whose playing stacks up to anything you’ll find.” - Brad Kava, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS
“The musical maelstrom known as The Waybacks blew in from San Francisco, sending up such a startling tornado of aggressively performed, high-spirited melodies as to remove all air from the room.
Their inspirational combination of influences -- not to mention their recklessly brazen breakneck pace -- exposed the band as virtuosos sharing a singular mind-set.” - Buzz McClain, THE WASHINGTON POST
