Meet the players

    • Joe Atkins

      Rhythm Guitar, Doubles On Sax
      Ring Leader and saboteur. He has has a million and one chances to be a jerk and hasn't been.

      You can never over dress for this event.

    • Walter Vanek

      Guitar, Vocals, Snare, and use to be Bass
      Walter really got going on the guitar when meed the devil at the cross roads. Smashes the snare, plays a mean bass, and shreds the mandolin. A real steady Eddy of a player.
      That oyster lady is a real mother shucker

    • Rob

      Bass and Guitar
      We couldn't be more grateful for our bass player. He always goes whole hog for us.
      The rhythm boulanger.

    • Sam Atkins

      Drums, Trupet, Other Percussion, and we have seen him on Bass
      Sam has been a gift to the band. He is very talented and awfully willing.
      I asked for the orange drink and they gave me this. I think it may have alcohol in it.

    • Brian Mondel

      Trombone
      We would be lost with out him.

      Put a good Brian quote here.

    • Dan Pugh

      Trumpet - Suzi
      You can see Dan on the grid iron for Dan is in the Ravens Marching Band. We couldn't be more proud of Dan, and he owes it all to us.
      Don't let Dan foul you, this man is quite accomplished.

    • Paul Weeda

      Suzaphone
      Wholesome fellow who came factory equiped to play the Sousaphone.
      The big Wheezy.

    • Jim Fox

      Trumpet
      This young man once played with the Naval Band. We feel honored to have him aboard.
      Made the team on his first note.

    • Maureen Farrington

      Clarinet, Sax, Klavas, Guitar, and Vocals
      Key master and keeper of the time. Tons of talent squeezed into this little power house.
      Q: Whats a Wild Anacostia?
      A: 5 bucks the same as it is in town.

    • Walter Vanek

      Guitar, Vocals, Snare, and use to be Bass
      Walter really got going on the guitar when meed the devil at the cross roads. Smashes the snare, plays a mean bass, and shreds the mandolin. A real steady Eddy of a player.
      That oyster lady is a real mother shucker

    • Marianna Previti

      Sexigenerian Vocalist & Trumpet
      We have been begging her to join us for years, and we must have gotten good enough that she now has.
      You say the lyric is this, and I'm telling you it is going to come out like this.

    • Kim Eddinger

      Fiddle and Vocals
      Kim brings the cajun french traditions to the band with killer fiddle licks and not too sweet vocals.
      "That ain't Cajun!"

    • Dwayne Grimes

      Accordion and Dance Monkey
      The bands second and worst drummer. Now moved over the to the cajun accordion to play some good old dance tunes we all know and love.
      Thank you for flying Wild Anacostia Air Express where we hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.
