A "legendary" late-'70s college band featuring Sim Glaser, Jack Wade,
Alan Trebat, and Scott, also performing original material. Though the
band was only together for the better part of a college year, the

A longtime and well-known Ashland musician, and good friend, he played piano virtually every
Sunday night at Alex's (which is now gone) for 26 years. He continues to play regularly at The Wild Goose and other venues.
The Wild Goose
A great small venue (and excellent restaurant) right off exit 14 in
Ashland. WWR has played there many times. Owners Dal & Renee Carver are great supporters of live music in town.
A beautiful winery in Talent, Oregon, with excellent wine, easy access
to the highway, splendid views and a really friendly staff. WWR
sometimes plays there in the summer season.

A relatively new and beautiful winery between Medford and Phoenix, Oregon. Plenty of room for bands like ours and dancing!
A very impressive and friendly wine bar in Ashland, which also hosts
live music from time to time. WWR was proud to debut
Wooldridge Creek Winery
between Grants Pass and the Applegate Valley, this family-run winery
offers superb wine, friendly staff, beautiful views, and great release
events, which we love to play.
Located in Medford, this winery has one of the greatest performance
spaces in the valley. We've only played here a couple of times but it's
always an honor and a pleasure.
A disc duplicator in Salem Oregon that offers great service. Our first
CD, First Vintage
was printed there and we highly recommend them. They are very
competitive in prices and quality with the large national duplicators,
and very helpful.
We live in an
amazing time where an independent artist/band can create a
professional-caliber CD in their home studio and have it distributed
worldwide--electronically and physically--quickly and cheaply. CD Baby
gets your music out there! And it's an Oregon company.
