ION INDIE MAGAZINE December 2015, Volume 19 - Page 23

Opening the show on this night, was an "All Star" lineup of local talent, which featured the 2015 CMA Award Nominee for “Male Rock Artist of the Year”, Jake Haldenwang and his band Halden Vang. Also performing, was the 2015 CMA Award Nominee for “Female Rock Artist of the Year”, Lauren Nicole and her band LaureNicole. Rounding out the lineup was, one of Charlotte's favorite local rock bands, Poor Man's Fame. All 4 bands blew the crowd away, with their sets of classic and new rock and roll hits. If you get the opportunity to catch the guys in Wayland LIVE, don't miss it! They love the interaction with their fans and the crowd, and on this night, they stuck around for hours after the show, taking pictures, chatting and signing autographs for whomever asked. Before the show, Phillip Vilenski (their lead guitarist), hinted to me that the band is in prep mode for a possible World Tour in 2016, with the release of their next new album. I am proud to call them friends…they are WELL on their way, to becoming superstars. WWW.WAYLANDTHEBAND.COM WWW.LAURENICOLEOFFICIAL.COM WWW.POORMANSFAME.COM WWW.REVERBNATION.COM/JAKEHALDENWANG
