John Waite with Special Guest Nick Muilaert
As a solo artist and as the lead singer of The Baby’s and Bad English, John Waite was a fixture of album-oriented rock radio stations during the ’70s and ’80s. John Waite had a talent for power ballads and driving arena rock, occasionally touching on new wave-styled power pop.
With more live shows and new music in the offing, John Waite continues to forge his own singularly personal path, celebrating the present and engaged by the promise of the future. The story is far from over for the Lancaster, England-born rock star/balladeer/storyteller who was inspired onto his musical path by blues, soul and country along with a deep connection to the Celtic folk music of his homeland.
Nick Muilaert is a Chicago-born singer/songwriter who takes his inspiration from folk artists, old and new, such as Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket, Nick Drake, and many more. Nick’s music deals with many coming of age topics like self-discovery, apathy, and romance while utilizing a DIY/lo-fi approach to creating music. Performing with his talented backing band, Muilaert & The Society , Nick, and the band constantly reinvent themselves on stage, which in return creates a unique live performance every time.
