"Waiting4Andy Sell Out The Flytrap"

Since I’ve been trekking round the local scene with my lens there have been few local bands I have enjoyed spending the evening with as much as Waiting 4 Andy. With a wealth of great, and at times diverse, songs and a heap of talent onstage they are a band that manages to deliver the goods whilst never taking themselves too seriously. It’s that sense of fun, which adds another dimension to their performance, and that always manages to spill out into the audience.

Tonight at the Fly Trap they return to a sold out house that bridges the age gap and with a new band member filling out their sound on keys they just may have found that missing ingredient. Tonight they are tight and focussed and lynchpin Mick Parker is working hard, but making it look easy after his recent trek around the north of our beautiful state. Perhaps best of all though tonight is the new material he’s brought back with him. - The Rockpit


W4A released their debut album in September 2010. The albums title track and name "Back In The Mud" is a reference to Micks days running his own fine dining restaurant and then returning to his trade as a grano worker.

They are regulars on RTR FM's Spoonful of Blues, where they recently performed live in the studio, delivering new songs about Aboriginal warrior Jandamarra and a song about Wittenoom called Blue Dust. These are just some of the new material Mick wrote, whilst on a six month Solo tour of the North West and The Northern Territory, where the last 100 CD's of the 1000 printed were sold.

The album is available through the bands website and of course, at gigs.



W4A is a six piece band that has reviewers and punters alike, searching for superlatives to describe their music. They work tirelessly at producing songs that continue to cross genre's and have their own identity. The band prides itself on delivering an energetic infectious performance every time they hit the stage. They leave the punters wanting for more and feeling good. Without fail this band has the crowd on its feet at every gig, grooving out to songs they are generally hearing for the first time. This is a testament to the quality of the live performance and the songs themselves.

With gigs under there belts at the Bridgetown Blues Festival, Fremantle Arts Centre, Swan Basement and The Rock Inne to name a few, combined with a residency at Fremantles Bar Orient, a recent sold out show at Fremantles Flytrap, they are building a strong and loyal following. Waiting4Andy are in high demand, with gigs booked every weekend. The bands moto is "never knock back a gig", these gig junkies just love to play, such is the passion and work ethic.
