The Wicked Good Band

The Wicked Good Band crawled out of the wreckage of an early 60s jug band that performed subtle anti-war songs at high school football rallies and hoots. Taking inspiration from the legendary Maine band leader, Rufus Doofus of Rufus Doofus and the Duffers, The WGB has performed in parts of many Maine counties, The National Press Club, Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, and the Norm Festival in Norm's back yard. Oddly enough, the band has endured and occasionally suffers brief moments of self respect that lead to new music.
The WGB once performed at the grand opening of a gas station, a bah mitzvah, several weddings (once covering Billy Joel's "The Longest Time"), The Maine Festival, The Clam Festival, The Lobster Festival, lobster crate races, stock car races, horse races, submarine races, on flat-bed trucks in 100+ degree temperature, outside of LL Beans on New Year's Eve in 10 degree temperature, on a float in a parade through Southwest Harbor, on a boat traveling up and down the Penobscot River, at the launching of a nuclear submarine (seriously, why?), for a Gary Hart for President rally, for a Eugene McCarthy for President rally, for a George McGovern for President rally, and once was paid to leave a country and western bar in Ellsworth without finishing the first set.
The band is now running for mayor of Portland, pledging to bring back trolleys and ticker tape machines.
