About the Band

Hailing from Yellow Springs, Ohio, Wheels plays their own brand of music. Some might call it Americana, but they’ve dubbed it ‘outdoorsy bird funk’ – a high-energy, foot-stomping hootenanny steeped in bluegrass tradition, seasoned with classic soul and rock n’ roll, and delivered with a forward-minded and innovative approach. Known for their stunning three- and four-part harmony vocals, the band consists of Rory Papania on guitar, Sam Salazar playing mandolin, Jamie Scott providing percussion and harmonica, Sam Crawford laying down the bass, and Conor Stratton covering everything in between. Show after show, Wheels delivers an energetic and engaging performance, always leaving the audience wanting more of this one-of-a-kind experience.

    Every time I see you four perform, it amuses me to think that, statistically speaking, musicians’ best work gets done between their late twenties and middle thirties, meaning you all have over ten years to just keep on getting better at what you do-

    which is phenomenal since you already pack a hell of a punch. Keep up the sterling performance!
