"Wildcard Society draws from full deck of music"

What do you get with three musicians, one common goal and a long list of cover songs?

In case you didn't guess it, it's The Wildcard Society.

Guitarists Nick Carver and Seth Stroud have played together since their days as college freshman at Mississippi College in Clinton, Miss. Soon after moving to pursue degrees in the music business program at MTSU, they met Wayne Baker, a recording industry management major, and began playing officially as The Wildcard Society.

As other players came and went, this core group of three focused on learning cover songs, establishing a name and honing their craft.

"We try and do something to hit everyone at least once with a jam or a tune to satisfy them for the night," said Carver.

Recently, the guys began writing original tunes to accompany their repertoire of cover songs, which include tunes from Led Zeppelin, Dwight Yoakam, The Doors, Guns and Roses, and Snoop Dogg, just to name a few.

The Wildcard Society prides itself on being able to perform songs from different genres to please the audience. Because you never know who will be in the audience at any given time, the guys make sure to have a complete list of songs that reach all generations.

"There has been a lot of stuff in the music industry that has turned young people into old people ... turned them off to the mainstream and vice versa. (We want them to know) there are still real people playing real songs with real emotions; there is still freshness as it was back in the day," Stroud said.

The Wildcard Society wants to make sure fans get a performance full of diverse music and a ton of energy. So expect songs of both the old and new and maybe some original music thrown in the mix at the show Saturday at the Bunganut Pig.

The Wildcard Society also plays a show Sept. 19 at Coconut Bay Café. - Daily News Journal


Still working on that hot first release.



The Wildcard Society consists of a simple formula combining seasoned musicians, who all play in a variety of bands of many genres, and adding in a dash of good sense for great music. Taking the "We Play Everyone's Favorite Song" approach, there is never a wrong chord struck with listeners. Streching across the musical spectrum from everyone's favorites to the oldies but goodies, you never know what you are going to hear next. This incredible lineup features Seth Stroud and Nick Carver nailing the vocals with their alluring harmonies, Brian Rosser on percussion keeping the pulse alive, Alex Smith, ripping it up free-style to chickin-pickin on electric guitar, and Lane Baker keeping everyone on the "down low" with the bass. Avaliable for hire in every occassion whether it be a venue, wedding, family reunion, fraternity or sorority function.
