Hardly a purist, he has described the music he and his band, The Beatnecks, make as “Rock for Roots fans and Roots for Rock fans.” His raucous live shows featuring his booming baritone, blazing guitar licks and punchy rhythm section - overlaid with a healthy dose of his quirky humor - have created a devoted worldwide following of enthusiastic fans. His last 2 CD’s went to #1 on the Roots Rock Chart. Using all manner of media (music, movies, TV, print and radio), Webb Wilder has been impacting Popular culture, and it him, for way over 20 years. Webb was recently inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame for 2010! He is now listed alongside Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Buffett, BB King, Muddy Waters, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley, and Jimmy Rogers.
