Roger Alan Wade And The Last Band Performs On New Year's Eve At Mayo's

Thursday, January 4, 2018 - by Mark A. Herndon

Roger Alan Wade is no stranger at Mayo's Bar & Grille on Brainerd Road. The place, established about 30 years ago, hasn't changed much. They serve up cold beer, adult beverages, sweet tea, burgers, meat and three, etc. (AKA as Southern comfort food. Roger and Rick Mayo have been friends for a very long time.)  Roger penned several of his more popular songs here  ... such as "If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Better Be Tough" a staple song for his cousin Johnny Knoxville's series/movies "Jackass".

It made perfect sense for Roger to return with his Last Band and perform like an outlaw country music star on New Year's Eve with his BAHF and friends.

These guys are crowd pleasers, Roger Alan Wade, vocal, guitar Neal Nichols, vocal/bass Dave Summers, steel guitar Michael Dillard, drums. 

Roger Alan Wade & The Last Band will perform at Puckett's Chattanooga on Jan. 13, prior to performing on the Outlaw Country Cruise on Jan. 22 -26, New Orleans to Costa Maya.

A movie is in the works "The Reckless Kind: Story of Roger Alan Wade by Cindicate Productions on Vimeo Teaser No. 1 , Directed by Geoff James & Benson Greene.

RAW albums: "Southbound Train", "Deguello Motel", "Stoned Traveler", "Too Fat To Fly", "All Likkered Up" - Available NOW on iTunes, Amazon and everywhere music is sold online.  (Johnny Knoxville Record Label)
