Based in Fort Collins, Colorado, Wasabi’s music is a unique mix of ass-kickin’ Rock-and-Roll, Psychedelic Blues, and Funky Jazz. A six-piece with two electric guitars, keyboards, saxophone, bass and drums, Wasabi produces a full and exciting contemporary rock sound: live Wasabi is a sweet and spicy mix of driving rhythms, compelling beats, soaring guitar leads, and passionately sung vocal hooks, harmonies, and melodies.

Sonically influenced by Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes, and Widespread Panic, Wasabi draws heavily from the song-writing craftsmanship of Tom Petty and The Band to make for a gripping, cohesive, and highly danceable musical performance. With a philosophy that incorporates the crowd-pleasing sensibility of classic funk with the improvisational, heart-wrenching spirit of the blues, Wasabi is quickly becoming THE Rock and Roll band to see in Colorado.

Blind from birth, keyboardist Brian Collins possesses an unnaturally powerful voice. Lead guitarist Sean Waters and rhythm guitarist Ehren Crumpler both sing lead as well, and together the three of them create
awe-inspiring harmonies. Drummer Marshall Van Stone relentlessly drives the band and music forward with powerfully unique drumming, while Eric “Bulldog” Skjerseth holds it all together with heart pounding bass guitar. To top it all off, saxophonist Tom Grey interweaves beautiful melodic structures throughout the hard driving rock and roll.
