“There’s nothing common about this rising talent.” -WXPNWanderlustNASHVILLE, Tenn. — The music industry was different in the 1990s. Rock ‘n’ roll ruled the roost. Spotify had yet to be invented. It was during this golden age — somewhere between Bill Clinton’s inauguration and the start of the New Millennium — that a rock band named Wanderlust made its stand.Wanderlust felt like a timeless band for the modern world, its songs rooted in electric guitars, classic pop hooks, percussive stomp, and the shared chemistry of four friends — frontman and principal songwriter Scot Sax, guitarist Rob Bonfiglio, bassist Mark Getten, and drummer Jim Cavanaugh — who’d finally gotten their shot at the brass ring. Decades after inking a major-label contract with RCA Records, opening for The Who, and touring America with Collective Soul, Wanderlust has reconvened to finish some unfinished business with 2021’s All A View, available on July 2, 2021.To understand Wanderlust’s present, it helps to look at the band’s past. The group formed in Philadelphia in 1993, signed a record deal in 1994, and released the debut album Prize in 1995. Championed by publications like The Sunday London Times (“Wanderlust‘s album Prize is one of the greatest rock albums ever made”) and MOJO (“power pop at its best ”), Wanderlust burned brightly and briefly. Dropped from RCA before they could finish their second album, the musicians released a self-titled record in 1998 and soon went their separate ways. Sax established himself as a hit songwriter, solo artist, and sought-after filmmaker during the 21st century, co-writing the Grammy-winning “Like We Never Loved At All” for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw and serving as the hand-picked opening act for Robert Plant and Allison Krauss‘ Raising Sand tour. Meanwhile, Bonfiglio released a half-dozen solo albums, performed with the Beach Boys, produced an album for Wilson Phillips, and landed an ongoing spot in Brian Wilson’s band.Recently, in 2020, Sax came across a DAT tape featuring acoustic recordings of songs he’d written after Prize‘s release. These demos felt like a time capsule — a blast from the past, dreamt into existence during the band’s heyday and filled with the same sonic spirit that had once earned Wanderlust admittance into the big leagues. The songs would’ve made a great Wanderlust album … which is why Sax decided to get the band back together and finish the work he’d already started.“I feel like a young Cameron Crowe, with a story about a band that fell victim to its own insecurities in the bright lights — and with the big wigs — of the music business, circa 1995,” he says. “Now, the same four guys find an old cassette of songs never recorded, long forgotten in their fall from grace. So what do they do? They put on their big-boy pants and make the album that never was.”That album is All A View, and it bridges the gap between Wanderlust’s past and present. Sax’s original demos represent the record’s bedrock, with most of his performances from 1996 remaining intact. Nearly 25 years after he laid down his vocals and acoustic guitar, a reunited Wanderlust began turning those bare-boned recordings into full-blown rock anthems, with each bandmate overdubbing his contributions from home during the 2020 pandemic. Sax wrote new songs for the project, too, including several collaborations with Rob Bonfiglio. The album was then mixed in Philadelphia, the same city that Wanderlust once called home.“What began as a revisitation of older material became a kind of snapshot of our musical journeys in the present tense,” explains Bonfiglio.Removed from the forces that drove the band apart — including conflicts between bandmates, pressure from their record label, and the collective desperation of four 20 somethings to succeed — Wanderlust’s members have rediscovered the singular sound that turned them into radio darlings and cult favorites during the mid-’90s.“We’re all grown up now,” Sax says. “It’s so great to reconnect once again, after the dust settled. I’ve been in all kinds of bands, but when the four of us played together for the first time in 1993, something special happened. It’s exactly the same feeling we got when we started working on All A View. The four of us just have a connection. We’ll play a song, and it just sounds like Wanderlust. It’s been amazing to let go of the ego and paranoia I had as a younger person, and just realize how great this band is.”

“NRBQ are that rare group that’s eclectic, stylistically innovative, and creatively ambitious while also sounding thoroughly unpretentious and accessible. At its best, NRBQ‘s music casually mixes up barrelhouse R&B, British Invasion pop, fourth-gear rockabilly, exploratory free jazz, and dozens of other flavors while giving it all a stomp-down rhythm that makes fans want to dance and expressing a sense of joy and easy good humor that comes straight from the heart.”

— Huffamoose members Kevin Hanson (guitar/vocals), Jim Stager (bass) and Erik Johnson (drums) are The Fractals, one of the Philadelphia area’s most unique and interesting bands.
Guess what happens when a trio of three martini lunches staggers toward a ragged copy of “Respect For Acting,” stumbling over bell-bottoms into plasticine porters, hissing like 8-tracks, knocking over emo kids with Flying Vees… The Fractals, thats what happens, and they have been happening for over ten years. Tearing it up mercilessly in a cyclonic maelstrom of Steely-cum-Stevie-cum-Angus, with outer rings of Zeppelin and Trane, the whirling dervish that is The Fractals is not to be ignored.
Kevin Hanson, lead singer and songwriter, has performed and recorded with the likes of Usher, Jay-Z, The Roots, Musiq Soulchild, and countless others. He appears in the acclaimed films “Fade to Black” as a band member for Jay-Z’s “farewell concert,” and Dave Chappelle’s “Block Party” as a member of the house band. His distinctive songwriting is what has drawn so many to both Huffamoose and his current band. His compositions and masterful guitar playing are the spinal cord of The Fractals.
Jim Stager, bassist, has performed and recorded with hundreds of artists, ranging from Rosemary Clooney (!) to the legendary punk band “X.” His mastery of rock and jazz merge in a style that has earned him a place in the pantheon of Philadelphia’s notable session greats.
Erik Johnson, drummer, has performed or recorded with countless artists in myriad styles. His credits include: Ben Schachter’s Trio of Many, George Garzone, Tim Hagans, Jack Walrath, Gary Bartz, John Swana, Jef Lee Johnson, Ralph Bowen, Larry McKenna, Jim Ridl, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Kurt Elling, Gerald Veasley, Lelia Broussard, Liz Longley and Susan Werner. In addition to his legendary status as a jazz virtuoso, his drumming has served as the heartbeat for a striking range of Philadelphia’s singer-songwriter community. His fiercely original expressiveness on drums and soaring background vocals have become vital to The Fractals’ sound.
began in the dark smoky bar years of Philadelphia when South Street had trees covered in gum and boutique shops and punks.
They used to haul amps around town in used cars that rarely started and stay up late howling at the moon and then go to work in the morning. After an attempt at making mainstream music with Arista Records in the late 20th century failed, they went on to independently release records like That’s Ok I Can Sleep at Work, The Lift and the Drag, Young Professionals and Big in Texas. Philadelphia learned all the songs and filled its venues with singing fans. With those echoes still ringing in their ears, the band hauled their gear around the country, howling at the moon with lots of cool bands and meeting lots of interesting people worthy of stories that are still being told in a van that occasionally didn’t start.
The road had many detours, some bad traffic and huge cruise-ship-sized pot holes that swallowed the band more than once. It was high seas, big drama, cracking snares, thick power chords, drop jaw harmonies, microphone stands caressed, rooms wet with sweat and the raw passion of growing up in rock and roll. But it all peaked like a passing parade and disappeared into the dawn, the howling fading into the sounds of mail-trucks and school buses starting a new day. The band broke up in 2006. Everyone went their own ways.
It’s 2021. The van is gone. But the road has been patched up, and the detours all eventually led back to Philadelphia. Now, they have vehicles that are fairly reliable, probably insured and include car seats and plastic figurines stuffed deep down in the cracks.
There are stories that haven’t been told, old amps that can still peel the paint off a wall and the moon hasn’t had a good howlin at in a bit… HOWWWWLLLL!
If you like cool jams, space flute wizardry, friendly encounters, and breathing, you will probably love the Cookie Rabinowitz band.

The Peace Creeps is the current musical project featuring Bush. Bush and his A’s were the darlings of Philly in the ’70s and early 80s and had the hits “After Last Night” and “A Woman’s Got the Power,” which was later recorded by both Clarence Clemons and Jennifer Holliday. They released two albums on Arista Records and toured nationally, but they disbanded due to disputes with their record company. After that Bush had a few other bands and then took a long hiatus to write and record. Finally, along with guitarist John Marchiano, bassist Roy Fisher and drummer Jeff Pancoast, The Peace Creeps were born. Bush and songwriting partner AJay McLaughlin’s clever lyricism, along with their Elvis Costello-like wit, Faces-like looseness and the pop sensibilities of the Beatles are reasons for their appeal. Their second album, the backward looking/forward sounding, “Time Machine” is available at CD Baby.
