OM(usic)FG - Wesley Cook at The Vinyl - Feb 17

Wanna get “leid?” We can help with that. Fresh off a win at Hard Rock’s battle of the bands, Wesley Cook is bringing his full band to the Vinyl’s stage for a great show that is not to be missed!

Wesley started off with a solo acoustic album in 2005 and has come a long way since then. His most recent full-band album has a laid back, pop/beachy (is that even a category?) sound. Cue my Van Morrison reference and add some of O.A.R.’s bold, high-energy sound, and you’ve got Wesley Cook. He puts so much of his personality into each song, and you feel like you know exactly what he's singing about.

He has shared the stage with many great artists such as Drivin’ n’ Cryin, Zac Brown Band and Manchester Orchestra. In 2006, he was nominated for “Soloist of the year” in the Athens Music Awards, and he has appeared on MTV2 as an “Artist on the Rise.”

Some of my favorites from the cd are: Tasty Devil Woman, Home Grown Girl, and Sunrise Over Georgia. You can check out the cd New Ground at, or click the picture below:

You can hear Wesley LIVE tomorrow night at Vinyl! Also on the bill: Christopher Alan Yates, and Patrick Scott. Doors at 7:30, $10 at the door. That's a bargain for some great music, plus you get a LEI! Just do it!

Here’s a video from Wesley’s 7/21/10 show at Hard Rock Café. Always a very enjoyable show!
