Wayside Shakeup

Our featured band this week has a brand new album out called Optimistic


The Wayside Shakeup are a bluesy pop rock 5-piece and this week’s featured band. Two of the members have been writing music together since 2003. Their self-titled album was released in 2011 and it is a solid collection of songs; in fact that album has been featured in our #fullalbum at 3pm ET on several occasions. You can grab a few free downloads from the first album on their Reverbnation page.


The new album, Optimistic, was just released last week and we were fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at a few tunes. The self-titled track is just the right amount of catchy. It’s the kind of tune that will get stuck in your head, yet the music is intricate enough to hold your interest.


Tune in all this week to hear some new and some old tracks of Wayside Shakeup in heavy rotation. We’ll also be starting every episode of Gashouse Live (weekdays 6pm ET) with a track. And look for Wayside Shakeup to make an appearance in our studio very soon for the Gashouse Acoustic Series!
