As you may already know we are heading out to NAMM in Anaheim in just a couple weeks. Besides getting to check out the latest in music gear as well as get to see and talk to so many interesting musicians, I always look forward to what the nightlife brings during NAMM week.  Every year, in addition to the long days at the Anaheim Convention Center there is a multitude of great bands playing throughout the Southern California area and all are hoping that you get to check them out.

I have so many shows planned to cover for that week and I just recently added another one to my schedule. After listening to them I had to fit them in! Allow me to introduce you to an awesome Rock band from Phoenix, Arizona; While She Waits. These guys are delivering great rock and roll with a Southern flare that I am excited about.  They already have an extensive following in the Phoenix area and have been nominated for Phoenix’ Best New Hard Rock Song. I am glad they are heading further out West here, to treat us with some hard southern rock during NAMM week as well as a couple shows in Las Vegas.

These guys are a new band and were recently endorsed by Krank Guitar Amps and you will be able to catch a couple of the guys at the Krank Amplification booth during NAMM. They are just getting started but they are sure off to a running start. You can head over to their website and listen to their music. The first song I heard was “Stars and Bars” and just loved the slide intro and then you get the emotion filled edgy vocals of James Cole. It really will captivate you and infuse you with energy. Another song that I really love is “Home”. This song just takes me to a lazy summer afternoon where I would just sit back and enjoy the moment. It reminds me of when I would listen to my brother’s Lynyrd Skynyrd records and blare the music out to the patio while sipping a lemonade and suntanning. Then you listen to ‘The Road” and you get straight up rock and I truly love the drums in this one. I really like all the songs and I am looking forward to what While She Waits has in store for the year ahead. We are planning an interview and will keep you updated as to what they have in their future plans.


While She Waits will be playing at the Whiskey A Go-Go on Saturday January 26th, 2013 and they have an 8:15 pm slot so make sure to get there in time and catch this rockin band. They have a really impressive sound. Think Blackstone Cherry blended with some STP, sprinkling in some Volbeat and a dash of Godsmack. There you have the recipe for some splendid Southern Rock. So if you are in the area during NAMM week, come on out and join me for a great show. I have a feeling we won’t be disappointed…

*** If you want to buy your tickets early which I strongly suggest due to NAMM week, you can call James Cole directly at (602) 341.1629 and he says he can get you all set up!
