Starting a touring-ready band from scratch and instantly hitting the road is a tough thing to do, but it seems to be working for Mister F.
Formed in 2013 from members of Timbre Coup and Capital Zen, these young guys from Upstate NY have already brought their fresh blend of fusion and funk to 19 states across the country. By year’s end, Mister F will have played over 200 shows as a band, with 141 of those gigs falling in 2014 alone.
A busy festival season, filled with events like Hudson Project, Catskill Chill, and Mantrabash (to name a few) paired with opening slots for Snarky Puppy, Toubab Krewe, Conspirator, Dopapod, and Consider the Source, have really contributed to the buzz surrounding this group.
Whether you love good music, or just really like Arrested Development, you should give Mister F’s debut album “The F Stands Four” a spin. It was recorded only 10 months after the band’s first show, and we think you’ll agree…it’s a sign of great things to come.
Wyllys started spinning at age 15 and hasn’t looked back since. Training himself with drum and bass on belt drives in 1997, he has since moved on to many genres of music, playing coast to coast as well as international and festival dates. He has shared the stage with contemporary luminaries Orchard Lounge, Justin Martin, Gigamesh, and The Magician, as well as many talented bands and musicians from many genres of music including Umphrey’s McGee, Trey Anastasio Band, The Greyboy Allstars, Jurassic 5, Soulive, and many more.
