June 2017, Jan de Vrieze, accomplished Dutch guitarplayer, and Miranda Snijders formed the band Way Out West. The mission from the beginning was to create a modern country sound. The music is still rooted in the warm, raw authentic folk sounds as sung by artists such as Alan Jacksons, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and George Jones. WOW uses this great classic sound and merge it with the fast paced country-rock of today.
The WOW band members interpret their cherished roots in a unique European way to bring you music with a compelling new twist: Traditional Country, Country Funk, Southern Rock. Inspired by contemporary artists such as Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill and Billy Ray Cyrus, Travis Tritt ,the band focuses on energetic live performances with great entertainment value.
Country… at its best!
