The Grave Dancers
The Grave Dancers
The Grave Dancers is the latest band from singer/songwriter/guitarist/novelist and longtime local rocker David Wildman. It began in 2016 as a recording project with bass player Matt Gruenberg and drummer Seb Kossack at Blossom Studios in Natick. In spring of 2017 new members Mark Wilkins joined on drums and Art Esposito on bass to provide a whole new level of crazy energy for live gigs. Wilkins comes from a history of playing in gospel and soul outfits, but behind the kit he’s a volatile musical presence that rocks like the devil. Art is a longtime John Entwistle disciple with serious chops who loves him some Smithereens and REM. He’s returned to the scene after many years of not playing music, and you can tell from the way he attacks his axe that he missed it. Along with Wildman’s angular guitar playing and Tom Verlaine-like vocals, the band comes off like some fever dream jam between The Who and Television. You can hear the original recordings (pre-Wilkins and Esposito) on David Wildman’s blog www.wildmanboston.com or check out those as well as some live fare at https://thegravedancers1.bandcamp.com/
