    Waker

    Rock

    Waker was founded by childhood friends and songwriting duo Chase Bader (vocals, acoustic) and Conor Kelly (electric guitar). The group mashes soul, rock & roll and funk into an eclectic, danceable sound, focusing on songs that aim for the heart, head… and feet.

    Originally known as Koa, Waker was christened in late summer 2016 following the addition of drummer Dave Czuba and organist/pianist David Crutcher to the already talented lineup of Ryan Ladd (bass), Alex Mathews (sax) and Ryan McClanahan (percussion). With a name that stems from the line, “Getting close to bedtime, time to wake,” in their song, “Fever,” the intention has always been clear: to “wake people” with their music. In a short amount of time the band has already conquered festival stages at ACL, Hangout, SXSW, Firefly and Wakarusa. They’ve toured with JJ Grey & Mofro, Moon Taxi, Galactic and The Wailers, and recently recorded a session for Audiotree Live.

    Since the release of their 2015 EP the band has continued their nonstop regiment of touring and writing. Look for new music in 2017.

    Waker is an experience meant to be shared with others.

    Funk-Rock

    In Syracuse, New York, one of the coldest cities in the country, four college friends brave the snow as they head to class. As music majors, the FLOTUS guys are never without their instruments on their back. A typical day is a culmination of ear training, ensembles, and music industry classes, but when the sun sets they can be found in a practice room for hours on end, or playing a basement set for a packed room of daydreamers. The volume is cranked, the tempo is up, and the energy becomes electric.

    With a band name inspired by Michelle Obama’s Twitter handle, they constantly reinvent the acronym to be just as versatile as their sound. They challenge traditional genre labels by infusing classic rock influences with a new wave of funk and hip hop elements. Their debut EP, Sundance, was released on February 16, 2018 on all major streaming platforms.
