WILDER ROAD was formed at the close of 1995. The band spent much of 1996 recording their debut CD, 'Take One,' performing as the House Band for the television program, "The Gary Leavitt Variety Show,"and fine-tuning their live production. In February 1997, WILDER ROAD held their long-awaited "Take One CD Release Party" in Lowell, MA. The band's impressive following had anticipated this night for months. This was quite evident as the band played to a packed house of 1000 fans! WILDER ROAD did not stop there, however. They immediately began working the club circuit, to much acclaim. WILDER also began working on and playing out their newest material, which culminated in their 2002 follow-up CD, 'Keep Your Eyes On The Road.' Then in 2005, WILDER ROAD released their first DVD, 'Live Over Time,' a multi-year video compilation of nearly all their t! unes, plus special guest appearances and bonus footage. Since their debut release and subsequent follow-up CD material, WILDER ROAD has become quite successful and show no signs of slowing down.
WILDER ROAD has built and maintained a large and loyal fan-base by routinely performing in all the notable MA, NH, RI clubs; i.e., Mama Kin, Hard Rock Café, The Town Line Lounge, The Middle East, TT's, Sharky's, Chantilly's, Living Room, Backstage, Scuttlebutt's, Bleacher's, etc.
In addition to the rock clubs, they have performed for various colleges and festivals, including Boston University, U-Mass and the Annual Topsfield Fair, and prominent Ski Resorts, such as Sunday River and Wachusett Mountain.
Every engagement has resulted in complete satisfaction by the establishments and 100% re-booking.
The band has also received much radio support; i.e. WGIR, 101.1 FM (airplay, on-air features and performances, and hired as the station's feature band for their Annual X-Mas Party); WHEB, 100.3 FM (rotational airplay), WHOB, 106.3 FM (rotational airplay and chosen as one of the "Best Unsigned Bands" for their live broadcast concert from Greely Park, Nashua, NH); WXRV-"The River," 92.5 FM (rotational airplay, sponsored the Annual Mill City Brewer's Festivals at the Tsongas Arena w/Wilder Road as feature band each year), WERS, 88.9 FM (airplay), and WJUL, 91.5 FM (on-air features and performances).
WILDER ROAD has amounted a large amount of positive press (features and reviews), they substantially add to their fan mailing list at every show, and have maintained impressive CD/merchandise sales. Since 1997, WILDER ROAD has been sponsored by the Mill City Brewing Company, Lowell, MA and the band received a major cash grant from The Jim Beam Company to be used towards their 2002 CD release of 'Keep Your Eyes On The Road.'
