Biography: Formed in 2010, Wendy and the Lost Boys are a band of musical misfits who came from four different directions and the same place all at once.

Rooted in the Great American Songbook, their music covers whiskey-tinged ancient and modern folk, rocking Zydeco, the high-lonesome harmonies of loss and regret, and the joys of road-kill opossum dinner.

With Wendy and the Lost Boys, the music comes from the magic place where performance is bigger than the individual parts of the band. If they weren’t playing together they would be hanging out together.

They follow in the footsteps of great bands who take any song, original or classic, and make it their own.

I miss WLB
by: AJ

I saw Wendy and the Lost Boys first show and many that followed.

I left Portland this past winter, and I miss my Wendy and the Lost Boys. The internet helps, but it is all about getting out and seeing them live.

Is there a gig coming? Go see it for me and put your dollars in when they pass that hat. I'll buy you a beer. Somehow. Some time.
