The Waybacks have pulled in at No. 9 on the Americana Radio chart, just a few spots ahead of the South Austin Jug Band, a band Los Alamos audiences know well. At No. 4, the Waybacks stand four spots ahead of Tim O’Brien, another Los Alamos favorite, on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart.
The new album, “Loaded,” like the band itself, is doing very well.
“These guys can play like bandits,” said Billboard’s Ray Waddell.
The Best Western Hilltop House will host what promises to be a great, dance-inducing show at 7 p.m. Friday when the Waybacks take the stage for the band’s first show on the Hill – first, that is, for most of its members.
Fiddler Warren Hood has played in the summer concert series previously, only as a member of the South Austin Jug Band. The Waybacks retain the SAJB’s charismatic, folk-friendly sound, but have gone off in a direction all its own.
“The Waybacks are an interesting mix of genres,” said concert producer Russ Gordon. “That’s why I call it Americana – they’ve got everything from blues to jazz to bluegrass to country and certainly rock. All of those are the roots of rock’n’roll.”
