Even as they grow in popularity nationally and internationally, The Waydown Wailers have landed more performances locally due to their rising stock on musical charts and reviews from across the world.

The Band has had a busy summer. They performed as an opening act for the Charlie Daniels Band at the St. Lawrence County Fair in Gouverneur on Aug. 2 and opened for Jerrod Niemann at the Franklin County Fair on Aug. 13. But the largest-to-date act for the Canton-based group of mostly 50-something rockers took stage Aug. 5, when they opened for hit country music group Lady Antebellum at the watertown Fairgrounds. We sat down with two members of The Waydown Wailers last month for a conversation about how a group of friends has gone from playing local bars and clubs to landing shows that some only play in their dreams.
