Upcoming Performances

Keep in mind, not all of the gigs I do are posted here. I do A LOT of private events, private and corporate concerts and recording sessions that I don’t post. This page is geared towards the performances that are open to the public. Also, because of the nature of the way the website is designed, the Wade Preston Band and Wade Solo gigs are listed separately, so while separately they are listed chronologically, the page still seems a little out of order. Sorry ’bout that, folks. : )

One of the things I love about what I do for a living is; it affords me the opportunity to meet all kinds of people I would have never met otherwise. Thank you all for your indulgence and making me feel so welcome over the years. Means the world to me.

The long awaited CD LOST IN THE NOISE, featuring Jon Ventre on bass and Steve Kurilla on drums, as well as a number of orchestral musicians to add to the eclecticism of the music is now available as a CD at Wade’s performances, or as downloads on iTunes or streaming on all digital formats.

My apologies for the lack of an ordering CD option. My bad … When it’s time to order the next pressing those options will be back up here. I can certainly mail one to you if you’d like.

This project took a year and a half to create. It’s a concept record and it’s about an hour long. I’m very happy with how it came out. It’s quite eclectic, very Wade. I hope you enjoy it. Check out the free liner notes that include all the lyrics and additional musicians and other information.

Originally released in 1995, Wade’s classic No Present Like the Time CD with the original WPB, with Christo Pellani on drums and Clifford Rehrig on bass, has been remixed and remastered. I was never too happy with the original mixes, so when it came time to transfer all my original ADAT tapes to a digital format that wouldn’t deteriorate (ADATs used VHS tapes), Eric Ritter and I took it upon ourselves to remix and remaster the whole thing. Thank goodness the tapes and machines were all still in good shape! We even found two instrumental tracks that weren’t on the original pressing, so we included those as well. The only thing missing is the beautiful original artwork done by Steve Johannessen, and the original photography. Sadly those hard drives had deteriorated beyond repair. But the music survived! So, for now this recording is only available as downloads on iTunes and streaming on all digital formats. There are some real classics on this recording. Christo and Cliff are still on the west coast, but we still chat quite frequently. Love these guys. Funny as hell! And they were and are amazing musicians. To this day no drummer has been able to pull off Coffee To Go like Christo, or even figure out the time signatures. We never did, either. We just felt it. It really was a great band.
