Spotting Waldo is primarily a rock band which incorporates various styles of music. By combining flairs of Bluegrass, Prog-Rock, Reggae, Dance music and face-melting Rock & Roll with a unique lyrical styling, the Waldo sound is full of variety and constantly evolving. Their goal is to blend as many of these styles and write as many different sounding tunes as possible. The band consists of drums, keyboard, bass, congas, and guitar. Based out of St. Louis MO., Spotting Waldo was formed in 2005 by Kyle Anderson, Jon Byrd, and Jack Schurk. Dan Bess, a composition student at Webster University, and Shaun Spiker, percussion major at SIUE, were added to complete the Spotting Waldo lineup. The band has played at many venues all around St. Louis and southern Illinois. Currently, Spotting Waldo is in the process of recording their debut album. Influences include all of the classic rock, jam band, blues, and jazz greats. By focusing on good times and good music, this band pushes to make each show a memorable experience.
