The Asylum Wind Band is coming off the release of their 2nd EP of original music, entitled “Lookin’ Up”. The band continues gigging throughout the southeastern Pennsylvania and south Jersey areas, bringing an uncompromising blend of catchy original tunes and carefully crafted versions of their most-loved cover songs to very receptive audiences. The band continues to write and perform new material and is scheduled to go back into the studio later this year (2017) to begin laying down tracks for their 3rd record of original material. All members of the band play multiple instruments and sing lead and backup vocals allowing for some stunning vocal harmonies and innovative instrumentation.
The Asylum Wind Band loves performing for live audiences– wherever the venue! Whether it’s a concert hall, festival, club, restaurant, bar, public event, or private party. A typical performance finds the band effortlessly switching gears from one musical genre to another. Enthusiastic audiences are treated to a wide variety of music as represented on the band’s latest CD, entitled “Lookin’ Up,” available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, Pandora, or wherever you source great music.
There’s the rockin’ harmonica infused “You Can Only Control (What You Can Control)”, mixed in with the socially conscious “Cheaters”, followed by the artful and alternative “Why”, succeeded by the whimsical and hard driving “Not My Fault”, and rounded out by the tender ballad, “I’ve Never Loved No One (Like I Love You).” Few bands offer such diversity!
AWB has the versatility to perform powerful rock sets, quieter acoustic sets, or anything in between, depending on the mood or venue. With such a varied set of musical influences among the 5 band members, you never know what type of song will pop up next! One thing we’ve learned is that our fans like it hard, soft, fast, and slow!
