Wild Eyes Band

Excited to welcome WILDEYES back to West of Wise Winery!
This is a concert you won't want to miss!

Deep Nashville roots, rich Western influence, a veritable fortune of experiences touring in support of a-list artists, and a non-sexy, woodshed, 1950’s American work-ethic have unified Daniel and Emily Kohavi and Max Hoffman to forge the marvel of Wildeyes. A writing machine, Wildeyes has the uncanny ability to viscerally connect across generations, ideologies and genres with pure American music wandering South and West. Wildeyes performances are inimitable gifts that sonically, visually and emotionally retrieve and elevate you.
