Local Artist and multi talented human being Christopher “Etch” Wayrich stops over to the podcast to say hello. He tells us about his passion for art and where it comes from. What his roles are in helping to support the community. And how we can all find happiness in the world if we are doing what we love.
On the fringes of the jam band scene, local rock quartet Grover, blending funk, soul, and jazz, is a down and dirty rock band that comes across unpolished and “garage” as much as they do highly-skilled, almost veteran. Their music is fresh and fun, energetic and playful but with a mission.
The guitar reverbs and bass lines groove like funk, the vocals are soulful, and the solos take the songs to …a higher plane. Because even with much improvisation, every note has a purpose. Together, the funk rockers blast a sound that defies a single genre or even a fusion.
A Grover song never sounds the same twice. Improvisation during their pieces is about “keeping it fresh” and creating a “loose feel”. What evolves are freewheeling and confident party jams and ballads that are lush and sensual.
Their influences range from The New Mastersounds, The Black Crowes, to jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, to jam bands like The Grateful Dead and Phish.
The name Grover sounds gritty, funky and dirty, kind of like our music.

The monthly sessions will feature burlesque babes, roller derby girls, belly dancers, drag queens, fetish models, and a plethora of other strange lovely people along with contests, prizes and alcohol galore. Since it’s inception Dr. Sketchy’s has received coverage from the likes of The LA Times, The Washington Post, BBC Radio, NPR, The Village Voice, WNBC, Time Out London, and The New York Times
Alexis grew up in the Dayton area. She has been singing and playing music for as long as she can remember. Her dad, brother, and sister are all musicians as well. As she got older, she joined the family band. She plays guitar and piano and dabbles around with a few other instruments to include banjo, bass and drums. That instrumental talent, combined with her clean country vocals has greatly contributed to her success. But, it’s also her songwriting that has been noted and recognized these last few years. She’s won a number of local contests where she’s been given the opportunity to showcase some of her original music. Alexis plays with her band, Dayton Lexy, here locally as well as with a variety of bands in Nashville on the legendary Broadway strip. Next to music, her passion is Spanish. She loves the language and the Hispanic culture. Alexis currently travels to Nashville once or twice a month but will be moving down there to chase her dream full time in the center of the country music industry. There she plays a variety of clubs but can be seen regularly at the famous
Tootsies, Honky Tonk Central and Rippy’s. Be sure to check her schedule and stop by and see her.
GCP: Storyteller (McGuff and the Dumpster Fires)
McGuff and the Dumpster Fires blends punk, ska, rockabilly and grunge influences to create a raw, chaotic sound. This is a Dayton band that’s guaranteed to get you on your feet and moving.
Formed in the winter of 2012, MDF brings a punk ethic to a multi-genre format. Frontwoman Emily McGuff delivers snappy witticisms with soaring vocals lines, which fight alongside guitarist’s Taylor McGuff’s aggressive guitar style. A fast and steady rhythm section, led by bassist Keith Klein and fiery drummer Phil Doncaster, brings up the rear and provides a thunderous backboard to the band’s sound.
The band’s new EP entitled Peel It Back is available on iTunes and Amazon; but the best place to pick it up is at one of their live shows, where the band’s stage presence gets a chance to shine. For more details, check out their info at: https://www.facebook.com/mcguffandthedumpsterfires/
