I don't know whether Wanted Man were named after the Johnny Cash song (or even the Frankie Laine song) but it seems like there might be an outside chance. Wanted Man have a real old-school rock sound which draws heavily on blues and country music. More than anything else, though, they play take-no-shit outlaw music. Real mean, real aggressive... hell even their ballads are pretty aggressive. They remind me of the Chrome Cranks, though Wanted Man stay quite a bit closer to their musical roots.

They have some old recordings floating around but I definitely recommend checking out their recent live recording from DC9. That recording captures their impressive live energy. It's fairly obvious why someone decided to pair them with Reignwolf. - Here for the Bands

Wanted Man - This local trio had a guest guitarist tonight, a certain Anthony Pirog who is quite brilliant and prolific in just about anything he does. Being that one member of Wanted Man also has the name Pirog, it all makes perfect sense. And what would have been a fun crazy psycho-blues rock show with just three, became even louder and wilder with four. The rhythm section pummeled away with both guitarists blazing away with thick rhythms and dueling solos. Somehow the hearty vocals made it through the forest of fuzzed out barre chords. This was well delivered rock and roll music pushed beyond the barriers that the large crowd totally dug tonight. A solid opening set, perfectly leading into the headliners. - DC Rock Live

D.C. rock group Wanted Man has gone through several changes in membership before settling upon its current lineup (fun fact: Louie Diller of Holychild played in Wanted Man during the band’s early years). As of now, Wanted Man does not have an official release out yet, but they’ve performed quite a bit in D.C. over the last few months, with a show coming up this Saturday at The Lot.
After seeing them many times in concert, I can say that Wanted Man is one of the most exciting acts to come out of the D.C. scene in a long time. Take note-this is a band you’ll want to have on your radar before their debut album drops soon.
Before their show on Saturday, Wanted Man released a short music video for “Slow and Steady” that was filmed at DIY venue Paperhaus. Also, be on the lookout for our studio session with Wanted Man coming up soon! - DC Music Download


Still working on that hot first release.



Wanted Man is a rock n roll band. Blues, country and R&B all play a major role in the sound, played with punk rock attitude. Wanted Man began playing in their hometown of Washington, D.C. in February 2014 and have been drawing great crowds at some of the top venues in town. The shows display top musicianship from all members with a rock n roll edge that is really a sight to been seen. Wanted Man is currently working on an album and will begin releasing new material in late 2014, expect a record that takes many twists and turns through different styles of rock music.
