Wayland is a four piece rock n' roll band consisting of Mitch Arnold on vocals, Phillip Vilenski on guitar, Dean Pizzazz on bass, and Tyler Coburn on drums. All four members have deep roots in the midwest, and the band is named after Phillip Vilenski's hometown of Wayland, MI.

Managed by Jesse James Dupree, (Jackyl, Full Throttle Saloon) the band released their first album (self-titled) in 2010. They have since released a four-song EP, "Welcome To My Head." The title track had a successful run on Active Rock Radio.

The bands 2nd single Reno won many "best of" radio awards in 2013 all across the country. Wayland's current single "Get A Little" peaked at #6 on the iTunes rock chart and was labeled the "Friday Song" on radio stations nation wide. Wayland is currently in the studio working on a new album.
Staying true to the their midwest work ethic, Wayland has a reputation for high energy live shows. . "Always on tour," the band averages 2-300 shows a year.

They have shared bills with some of rock's biggest acts such as Alice in Chains, Volbeat, Halestorm, Rob Zombie, Brett Michaels, Sammy Hagar, Theory of a Deadman, Black Stone Cherry, Seether, Hinder, Shinedown, Buckcherry, Jackyl, Slash, Alice Cooper and many more. Perfect harmonies, riveting guitar solos, and lyrics that connect to working class America, keeps this band in demand.

Since first hitting the road in January 2012, the band has steadily built a grassroots following. Wayland is very true to staying connected with the their fanbase, the Wayland Warriors, and is active on many Social Media platforms.

Hard Rocket
Hard Rocket crash-landed in the mountains of WNC 5 years ago to rock Asheville off its foundation. Cosmonauts Colonel Lewison Clark, Sir Guido Stein and Captain Rubio Gold armed with the essentials for Rock-n-Roll have been playing around town winning over converts one Rock show at a time. Colonel Lewison Clark, armed with his Les Paul Jr. aka Johnny Crunch and his SG Jr. aka Johnny Lightning, has been the main force behind Hard Rocket’s success. Guido Stein possesses the Sonic Boom of the universe with his Bam Bam drum kit and his Mighty Max chops. Rubio Gold digs in his trusty Fender bass, attacking audiences with his rapid-fire 8th notes. Along the way, Renegade Rebel Rod joined forces with the Cosmonauts. Renegade Rod has added the One, Two punch to make the band of misfits a lethal Rock-n-Roll band!!! Not afraid to wave the Rock-n-Roll flag, the members of Hard Rocket wear their influences on their sleeves. Aficionados of straight-up Rock-n-Roll love this band because they rock hard, hence the name Hard Rocket.
