Wanted Man’s songs are about what we are, working people in America in a strange time,” says songwriter Kenny Pirog.
Formed in Washington D.C., Wanted Man plays rock ’n’ roll music as it once was, yet as it has never been. Over three years Kenny Pirog (vocals, guitar), Anthony Pirog (lead guitar), Scoops (bass, ask him about his name, you won’t be disappointed), and Rick Irby (drums) have crafted a sound usually only heard in one’s imagination. The release of their self-titled album in 2016 (available on all streaming outlets) showcased the band’s abilities to play in many different styles, as well as address vast subject matters. “That was just the beginning,” says Pirog when, alluding to where the band’s music is going.
The new music, which will be available for viewing at Gypsy Sally’s, takes place between here on Earth and cosmic fields. “Now, the lyrics are more relevant, there is more room for improvisation, the are stronger grooves, and Anthony is growing even wilder on his guitar,” says Pirog. Wanted Man’s music exists in order to make sense of what’s been happening as well as what can happen. “We are creating the world we live in, after all" says Pirog.
Syrupy vocals. Gravel undertones. Smoky rhythm. Juxt is a provocative display of sounds and motion hosted by Piano Whitman, Jay Burden & Akira Yasuhara. Their debut album - Coming In Hot - will make your palms sweat and your hair jerk as you fly into restricted airspace.
Oh He Dead
Perhaps best described as "rock and soul," Oh He Dead mixes in healthy doses of classic R&B vibes, funk, and folk with deliciously addictive songwriting. Led by the stirringly passionate harmonies of Cynthia Johnson and Andy Valenti, Oh He Dead mixes Motown influences with poignant lyrics to move both your soul and your feet.
Oh He Dead came to life in Washington D.C. in the summer of 2015 when Johnson and Valenti met serendipitously on H street. After finding their musical match in one another, they quickly collected some of the best musicians in Washington, DC, and formed Oh He Dead. The band has since exploded onto the indie scene, playing festivals and large music venues across the East Coast.
