The Come On Come Ons had a fantastic time on Saturday night opening up for the astounding Almighty Get Down from Cincinnati, Ohio. Thanks to Casa, Josh Brown and all the fans who came out to groove.
We’ll let organizer Ginger do the blogging for this show, but suffice it to say we had a blast and were honored to help this amazing cause:

In this episode of “Conversations from Studio B”, host Robin Barnes invites members of The Gathering Place to talk about their upcoming event, the Community Illumination Benefit, taking place Friday, August 21st at Central Venue, Central Venue, 29 Carpenter St., in Athens.
The Come On Come Ons second show went off without a hitch thanks to the good folks at Boogie on the Bricks, Judy Palmer, Tom Potter, Bob Dewey, Robin Barnes, and all the fans. The minute our set ended the skies opened up and it rained like nobody’s business. We were happy to get our set in and our gear out. =)
In addition to our set we debuted a new song, Elvis’ “I’ll Be Back” which was a lot of fun. We’ll see you at the next gig!
The Come On Come Ons appeared at the Shade Winery on Saturday, May 9, 2015 for our very first appearance in front of scores of family and friends. The sun was shining (hot!) and everyone seemed to have a very enjoyable time.
Thanks to Neal and Oui for inviting us into their amazing winery.
We appreciate the visit by Eric McFadden who was snapping fantastic photos, and Brant & T-Bone from “Sounds Great” for doing sound.
We cracked the seal on the band with some neat songs including two originals (Breeze, Soccer Mon) some Clash (Jimmy Jazz,) a Phish song (If I Could) and KC of course blew the doors off the place with “Hurt.”
The Come On Come Ons are a classy rock outfit based out of Athens, Ohio. This brand new band employs a smooth, jazzy sound that is infectious to dance too, and gets better with every listen.
The band members include:
– K.C. Waltz, Vocals (Voodoo Birds, Johnny & the Kitty Box)
– Dave Wooster, Guitar, Vocals (Leave Corp.)
– Roman Warmke, Bass, Vocals (Voodoo Birds, The Royales)
– Bill Rawlins, Drums (Broken Ring, Keesey Band)
The band is excited to debut on May 9, 2015 and hopes you will enjoy the new sound.
