WAYLAND is a four piece, blue-collar American band from Wayland, Michigan who began selling out venues all across the midwest in 2010 before relentlessly traveling the United States over 300 days per year for the past five years. 

Committed to their roots and their songwriting, you cannot pigeonhole their sound into a genre, as every verse is penned from their heart telling tales of their stage to stage gypsy lifestyle. Comprised of Mitch Arnold on vocals, Phillip Vilenski on lead guitar, Dean Pizzazz on bass, and Nigel Dupree on drums, WAYLAND is a modern take on their vintage influences.
