Biography

Following the traditions of Rock and Roll, Wreckloose combines the power groove, folk, and funk. Melodic guitar riffs, flowing keyboards, smooth bass playing, and grooving drums make Wreckloose stand out among the many bands today. Powerful vocal harmonies, intricate rhythms, and smart original compositions add to Wreckloose’s tremendous on-stage chemistry and connection with the audience. Wreckloose formed in early 2004. Guitarist Brian Shafer, formerly of Slinky Tripp, joined the band in December 2005. Wreckloose has consistently performed gigs throughout the Northeast and are looking to extend their travels. Past experiences and dedication have proved to be valuable tools in fine tuning their performance skills while reaching a growing, loyal fan base.

Influences include:

Talking Heads, Paul Simon, Fela Kuti, Medeski Martin and Wood, Gov't Mule, Elvin Jones, Allman Brothers, Black Crowes, and let's not forget to note inspiration from many of the fabulous "hair metal" bands of our youth.
