FEATURED MEMBER: The Wendy Clark Band Rocks COMBO’s World
The Wendy Clark Band or WCB (2011–present) is a Denver-based original rock band that evolved from Tequila Mockingbird (1996–2011).
Active on the Front Range music circuit and indie scene since 1996, Wendy Clark is a writer, composer, guitarist, bandleader, recording artist, manager, and promoter. Her music is classified as Americana and rock-centric — the melody and playful lyrics combined with Clark’s infectious melody and retro-modernistic meanderings are catchy, powerful, and kept fresh by delving into multiple genres.
Wendy has released three critically-acclaimed full-length CDs under the moniker Tequila Mockingbird; she’s performed at more than 1,000 festivals and gigs regionally, including A Taste of Colorado, Adams County Fair, Alamosa’s 4th of July Fair, and The CHUN Peoples Fair (1997–present); she’s toured the Rockies into Wyoming and through New Mexico; appeared on live TV and radio, conducting interviews and live in-studio performances on Denver’s Channel 2 Evening News (The Deuce), KRFC FM Ft. Collins 88.9 FM, KYGT FM, 1190 AM, KRUU FM Fairfield, Mile High Underground, Raven on the Rocks, KCMJ FM Colorado Springs, and Band Talk indie104.com; released dozens of videos (The Honeymoon and Catching On receiving tens of thousands of views on her YouTube); and opened at sold-out shows for bands such as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, The Samples, Bob Schneider, and Chris Daniels and The Kings.
She’s opened up for Tim McGraw at Fiddler’s Green, sat in with The Refreshments, Hazel Miller, members of Firefall, and backed up Brian Blush (The Refreshments) and Jamon Scott (The Toluenes), as well as collaborated and recorded with bassist Rob Squires of Big Head Todd and the Monsters on UFO (1998). She’s recorded tracks with Kenny James (The Samples), Sean McIntyre, and more. She also contributes her time and talent to many area charity benefits annually, including promotions, such as the 2011 and 2012 campaigns for CD Relief for the LLS. And she worked on the campaign for Chris Daniels and Mark Oblinger (Firefall) for the 2011 Grammy Awards.
Wendy has recorded with award-winning sound engineers/producers including Eric Shiveley (Alien-American 2004), Bill Thomas (UFO 1998, Luck and Trouble 2010), and multi- GRAMMY recipient, David Glasser. Wendy won Vocalist of the Year in 2009, and UFO was the fifth most popular in the Night Howler Radio Awards. Her song, Blue, has been awarded one of the top 100 songs of the year internationally by IAIRA in 2010. She has been listed in the Top 5 artists in Colorado and was in the top 50 most played singles and albums in 2010. Wendy has been working and promoting, as well as supporting the Colorado network since 1996. The band is promoted by Best 303 Songs and was recently named Band of the Week by that organization.
WCB is currently in the studio and expects to drop a new EP in the summer of 2018 with Brian Blush of the Refreshments on guitar.
