Wilderado at The Warehouse 6/17/24

Happiness is…
Walking up to the will call booth saying, “Hi! I should be on the band’s list?” and getting handed a comped ticket and a photo pass and then picking a spot in the front row. Thanks to Stunt Company Media, I was able to check out Tulsa, OK band Wilderado, which I had previously seen perform at Hanson’s Hop Jam Festival in 2019. The touring bassist for the band (Aaron) has also played with Hanson a couple of times, so it was cool to see him again.

The opening band was a band from London called Flyte and they were really good. Unfortunately, as happens a lot at this venue, there was a lot of talking at the bar and I’m pretty sure it was distracting the lead singer, he even asked for people to stop having conversations at one point but I don’t think the people who were talking even heard him because they just kept going. Fortunately, once Wilderado took the stage, the conversations were to a minimum and everyone seemed to be really into the show.

I’m not really familiar with their music but based on the woman behind me’s reaction for each song when they started, it must have been a really great set list. She just kept saying wow. Wow, oh, no way I love this song.  So it must have been a pretty solid set less if you were a fan but honestly not being familiar with any of their music I don’t know if they skipped anything, but it was A really good show.

They opted to not leave the stage before the last 2 songs and just have us cheer for them anyway and then did 2 more songs the first one the crowd was really, really into it. It became a big sing along and the last 1 all 4 members of the band were singing around one mic and the lead singer played guitar. That was pretty cool to see and that song also turned into quite a sing a long as well.  I’m definitely gonna have to check out some of their music soon – and September 20th they will have new music coming – their album “Talker” which they did play the title track from. Thanks to Stunt Company Media for a hooking me up with the ticket and photo pass for the show. I was a lot of fun and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to cover some more shows that I wouldn’t go to on my own in the future because I’ve been introduced to a lot of great music this way!

Stay in Touch w/ Wilderado
