The Wallies are an American rock band from Sarasota, Florida.
It started with a “roommate wanted” ad, and ended with crowd singalongs in sweaty, jam-packed venues all across South Florida.
The Wallies were started by Myles Edwin [guitar] and Neven Skoro [vocals/guitar] while they were roommates in Sarasota, Florida. They bonded over their mutual love for all things British, including “Only Fools and Horses,” “Peep Show,” and The Libertines. The band’s name is a hat tip to the very culture that inspired them.
They posted an ad on social media in search of more band members. Quickly, they recruited Drew Silverman [drums] and Ryan Hurst [bass] and started working on a home demo recording.
The foursome wear their rock influences proudly on their sleeve, smoothly blending the sounds and moods of The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Sonics, and the early Arctic Monkeys to create their own brand of fast-paced melodic rock ‘n’ roll. With their fusion of 60’s surf rock and post-punk revival, The Wallies are quickly turning heads. Just a few months after forming the band, a home-demo recording was released, sparking demand for live shows and catching the attention of local press and radio stations all around their home state of Florida.
The Wallies’ live shows have been described as raw, honest, and energetic, with the kind of no-frills performances that leave the audiences wanting more.
