Wig Party has kicked off 2018 with a bang!
The band has already blown the doors off afterparties for both Phish’s Trey Anastasio on his solo acoustic tour in Morristown, NJ and at BB King’s Blue Club in Times Square for the Bob Weir and Phil Lesh’s duo tour.
Now the band is pleased to be able to present their EP, 99th Birthday!
Diligently perfected at Mixolydian Studios in tandem with Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth, studio engineer Don Strenecker, and as mastering engineer, 9 Time Grammy Award Winner Gene Paul. The three song EP highlights the band’s jam flavor and soulful fun vibe while leaving plenty of room for the live improvisation that made the band who they are this year. The record features a guest appearance by the late incredible Andy Goessling of Railroad Earth on sax on the song “Rubber Bullet”.
Some exciting new talents have joined Wig Party for 2018 including bassist Eric Marcazo (Mother’s Wine), keyboardist Joe Biglin (Turkey Farm 5 and Jungle Jazz Initiative) and drummer Tom DiCiann. John Cisco moved to guitar and original band member Vincent Ventrigliaremains on lead guitar and vocals. The additions gave Wig Party the much bigger sound they were shooting forand they were able to debut the new sound and lineup opening for Chris DeAngelis of Kung Fu at the Stanhope House this past September.
Wig Party can’t wait to bring this new sound to our fans. The group is excited for the New Year ahead and the opportunities that will come with 2019.
