"'Must See Act' at Antiwarpt Festival"

The Wallies Hailing from Sarasota, The Wallies are a bunch of dirty-mouthed garage rock bad boys — and we mean that in the best way possible. Heartache, hatred, and moments of passion are the general themes of every song, “I don’t give a damn” vocals mixed with thick guitar licks and piled on top of heavy bass drum and cymbal-crashing rhythms. It’s the sort of rock music made for riding a motorcycle down a lonely highway. - Creative Loafing


"The Wallies Live Shows"

"At Wallies shows, the effect is like being strapped into an electric chair of non-stop, ferociously sexy rock and roll." - ThisWeekInSarasota


"The Wallies"

“Few local acts have risen in popularity as fast as The Wallies, nor had as much excitement surrounding a debut arrival. Upon hitting the scene in late 2010, the quartet quickly earned a reputation as a must-see stage act.” - Herald Tribune

Bio

The Wallies are an American rock band from Sarasota, Florida.

Singer-songwriter Neven Skoro moved to United States from Croatia at a young age to attend school in Fort Myers, Florida. While in school, Neven played guitar in several local rock bands that failed to take off.

Soon after he moved to Sarasota, he met his best friend and the bands guitarist, Myles Edwin. In the summer of 2010 they recruited bassist Ryan Hurst and drummer Drew Silverman to form a rock band. Aiming to bring the kind of music and shows they loved from the U.K. to the U.S.

With their fusion of 60s surf rock and post-punk revival, The Wallies are quickly turning heads. Just a few months after forming, a home-demo recording was released which sparked a demand for live shows as well as the attention of local press and radio stations. The Wallies live shows have been described as raw, honest and energetic with the kind of no-frills performances that leave the audiences wanting more.

Their first music video, for the single What I Like About You is Youre Rock Bottom, recorded by Ben Homola of Bad Books, was released in June of 2012.
