The Steel Wheels with Weda Skirts and Sweet Lil and the Nothings

May 28 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$20 – $50

The Steel Wheels have long been at home in the creative space between tradition and
innovation, informed by the familiar sounds of the Virginia mountains where the band was
formed, but always moving forward with insightful lyrics and an evolving sound. In 2005, Jay
Lapp (vocals, guitars, mandolin) and Eric Brubaker (vocals, fiddle) joined lead singer Trent
Wagler (guitar, banjo) in forming the band as a vehicle for Wagler’s songwriting. They released
several albums under Wagler’s moniker, before officially adopting the The Steel Wheels name
with the 2010 release of Red Wing. Quickly staking their claim as independent upstarts in the
burgeoning Americana scene, The Steel Wheels followed up this release with three more self-
produced albums in the next five years, before joining forces with producer Sam Kassirer for
Wild As We Came Here (2017) and Over The Trees (2019). Kevin Garcia (drums, percussion,
keys) joined in 2017, bringing a new level of sonic depth and polish to the outfit. Newest
member Jeremy Darrow rounds out the rhythm section and grounds the band as they continue
to explore deeply rooted yet fresh folk rock sounds. Having gained the experience of thousands
of shows, festivals and many miles on the road, the stubbornly independent band has formed
deep bonds with each other and the audience that sustains them.
