The Wildbirds Shakin' Up Canada, On Tour With White Cowbell

posted October 5, 2007

The Wildbirds Shakin' Up Canada, On Tour With White CowbellJust a few weeks after playing in Toronto at the Virgin Festival, Wisconsin's The Wildbirds are packing up and heading back up north. The classic rock inspired quartet are getting ready for a Canadian tour. Set to start in late October, The Wildbirds will be the supporting act for White Cowbell.

Within’ minutes of jumping on stage, swarms of men are bobbing their heads and shaking their legs to the raw and bluesy rock n roll rhythms and riffs of The Wildbirds. Minutes after they exit the stage, swarms of Anita Pallenberg type beauties are stealing them away to show them their home-town, coolest dive bars and favorite juke box songs before the band roll on to another state. When these four young musicians from Wisconsin decided to pack up their belongings (seriously) and jump in a beaten out van to take their songs on the road across America, not in their wildest dreams could they have imagined what was in store for them.

After joining Jesse Malin on the road this summer, then continuing to headline a bunch of venues in select cities, homeless and spirit-free, these guys are hell-bent on doing it the old fashioned way. Just like their musical mentors The Rolling Stones, The Band & Johnny Cash had done before them. Selling their debut LP “Golden Daze” (Pat's Record Company), on the road, playing and writing their own material to hundreds of fans and living the dream that so many desire.
