The Way-Back Machine
The 60's. It was a time of change, a time of growth. And it shows in the music. The Way-Back Machine faithfully recreates the music of the 60's and early 70's, from The Beatles to Iron Butterfly, The Kinks to Tommy James. One comment we hear a lot, "Wow, I forgot about that song. That's so cool".
What sets The Way-Back Machine apart from other cover bands? The sound is real 60's & 70's. Many of their songs contain the three part harmony that made the 60's sound. The 12 - String Rickenbacker electric guitar really brings out that sound too. And they look the part. From their button down shirts and thin ties, to their Beatle boots. And the crowds love it all. They can play up tempo for faster dancing (it's great to see some of the crowd doing the original 60's dances), as well as easier tunes for slow dancing. Whatever the mood of the crowd.
Musical talent runs deep in this band. The members have been playing live since the 60's and 70's. They played with multiple local bands over the years, opened for acts like The Troggs, Gary U.S. Bonds and Leslie West, and even played with the likes of Eddie Money. Most recently they've opened for Felix Cavaliere's Rascals, Creedence Clearwater Revisited and twice for Eric Burdon and The Animals. Where ever they play, standing ovations and calls for an encore are the norm.
So where do these guys prefer to play? They are equally at home in a small club or on a big stage, at a corporate event or a public show. Wherever they go, the stares of amazement at the set list is what they live for. Well, that and playing some of the best music ever written.
