Wicked Garden faithfully recreates the Stone Temple Pilots concert experience. Everything from the hard driving guitar riffs, melodic bass lines, complex drumming, and of course Scott Weiland's hypnotic vocals. Top that all off with bull horns, feather boas, orange hair and on-stage antics, and you are in for a great show. Expect to hear all of your favorite hits from the early 90's plus much more.
Troy Aylesworth - Vocals
Troy is a die-hard fan of all things grunge and has been singing the anthems of 90's hard rock since they first hit the air waves. His vocals will draw you in from the first notes and have you wanting more long after the mic drops. He is also temporarily filling in on lead vocals for Washed in Black, the Pacific Northwest's premier Pearl Jam tribute act. Other current projects include fronting Second Hand Flannel which is a salute to 90's rock hits.
Jeff Hardwick - Guitar
Jeff is a multi-talented musician and songwriter that is equally comfortable on guitar, bass, drums, and more. He grew up playing 90's rock on guitar and it shows in his ripping solos and driving rhythms. Jeff has played in numerous bands including most recently bENDT (hard rock originals) and Far From Given (90's covers). His favorite STP album is Core, having worn out the cassette within the first year of its release.
Dave Bevan - Bass
Dave handles the low end of the rhythm section in Wicked Garden and loves the challenge of keeping up with Robert DeLeo's melodic bass lines from STP. He has been playing guitar since high school, but only dabbled occasionally on the bass. That is until he teamed up with Troy and Jeff and discovered his love for it. Dave hasn't completely abandoned his six string axes and can be seen playing 80's and 90's hits with Megabox.
Jesse Van Dyke - Drums
Jesse is a true power house on the drums! He is the most recent member of the band and was first introduced to the guys when a drummer from one of the supporting acts at a show they were in called in sick at the last minute. When the call went out to the audience if there was anyone that wanted to sit in for a few songs, he jumped at the opportunity and proceeded to crush it! Jesse is a seasoned drummer, having played in several bands and enjoys teaching drums as well.
