Wakey!Wakey! added to CMJ Showcase

One of my favorite New York bands, Wakey!Wakey!, has some big shows approaching. Wakey!Wakey! is the brainchild of Mike Grubbs, a piano-pounding singer/songwriter who possesses one of the most "holy shit!" voices on the entire Manhattan scene. His band changes depending on the show, but it doesn’t matter if he’s playing solo, with a string quartet, a 3-piece band, or whatever - the guy is always wowing audiences. It’s in his damn second nature.

Tonight (Thursday, 9/20) Wakey!Wakey! (myspace) will continue their residency at New York’s close to acoustically perfect Rockwood Music Hall. Surprises have been promised to those already familiar with the band.

And in big news Wakey!Wakey! will be playing 2 shows as part of the CMJ showcase that takes over New York clubs every year. He’s been added to the Brooklyn Vegan showcase at Pianos on Wednesday, October 17 and also Indaba Music’s as well. Find out about Indaba here.

As mentioned earlier on this blog, Wakey!Wakey! is due to release a live album on Family Records called Make A Fist Inside Your Pocket in the near future, but according to the label’s website no release date has officially been set.
