WAM November 26-27 Rock Wiseman

Darrick ” Rocky” Wiseman has been backbeating some of the best musicians in Newfoundland and Labrador for, oh, what …. fifty years!

Hard to imagine that the man who has given the riddim to the Wonderful Grand Band, Peter Narvaez, the Ravens - who recorded one of the very first 45s in the province, Marylou Collins, Joan Morrissey and so many more, has been pounding it out for half a century.

So what better way to celebrate this golden jubilee than by putting the man to work!

When travels brought Rocky back to St. John’s the WGB was quick to arrange a reunion of the original band on the last night of their recent provincial tour. A mere snap of a synapse then made it obvious that a night to celebrate Rocky while he was still here in St. John’s would be a wonderful grand idea.
