UVE CONCERT WITH THE WAYBACKS Sat., Nov. 13 Doors open at 7pm Concert at 7:3Opm The Waybacks repertoire is touched by Memphis soul, honky-tonk, Parisian swing, classical music, vintage blue pop and original tunes penned and performed by songwriters and singers James Nash and Warren Hood. They draw freely from the old school and the old world, but the Waybacks are no throwback. They've been erroneously pigeonholed as a bluegrass band and celebrated as purveyors of "'acoustic mayhem." They are as uninhibited and unpredictable as the eclectic San Francis Bay area that claims them, and for nearly a decade, their experiments have always proven sharp-witted and musically dazzling.
