Brian Wachhorst (guitar/ vocals)

Brian was the founder and lead singer of the power-pop quartet, The Aftershocks.  The 1993 SF Weekly reader’s poll named them as one of the ten most popular Bay Area bands along with Counting Crows and Cake.  Brian started another project in 1994 – the Bay Area headliner YellowWood Junction.  YellowWood Junction performed regularly to packed houses across the Western U.S., sharing the stage with bands like Train and Third Eye Blind.  In 1995, KFOG featured Brian’s song “Fade to Blue” on the10 O’clock Newsradio broadcast.  This was just the beginning of his extensive international AAA radio airplay, which includes four new songs from his most recent album “The Life of Riley” (released in 2000).

As a cover performer, Brian performs 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and current material influenced by John Lennon, Elton John, Neil Young, REM, Counting Crows, and Train.  Recent clients include  Silicon Valley Bank, The Gap and The Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay.
