About Jesse Wilde & The Drive:

Jesse Wilde’s music has a rich Americana-rock style reminiscent of Steve Earle, John Mellencamp and Bob Seger. A true performer, he is at his very best when playing live. You can get the very first copies of the his new album, available when the E.P. is released on April 29th 2016 at this exclusive release event.

And with yours truly kicking off the evening with a solo performance, it should make for a fantastic night of Americana music.
