Lots goin' on with The WAYDS lately

We had a KILLER band reunion in August 2003... the first time we all played together in 37-40 years!   We video-taped it with a stereo audio feed of the band and all the interviews, and produced a reunion DVD and CD for the members.

We played at some high school reunion events last summer, and are getting ready to play a Benefit for the Oregon City High School Choir Trip to Italy.  Another local band listed here, The Stags, from Oregon City, played at the benefit at Rodders Pub in Oregon City on Friday evening, April 8, 2005.
