Band

In 19th-century Dublin, a union of cobblers (known as "waxies" for their waterproofing wax) grew famous for throwing wild parties to spite the rich townsfolk and their extravagant caravans. Then, in 21st-century Grand Rapids, a new incarnation of The Waxies came together to incite some revelry of their own. A folk lineup combined with rock energy make for a knock-down, drag-out, hell-of-a-good-time show. Since The Waxies' birth in 2007, their continued success is ensured by their contagious enthusiasm, loyal West Michigan fanbase, and niche in the region's thriving roots music scene. Experience The Waxies by downloading the latest album, Down with the Ship, or seeing a local show!
