September 17, 2018 ---- Here We Go Again....another month goes by , so quickly; We had an absolutely blast playing for all of the wonderful people that attended Uptown Untapped in Westerville. The 2nd. Annual Event certainly appeared to be a success based on the the large crowd and the good time that everyone was having, and the weather was fantastic!. We really appreciate you all chipping in and singing along on Bohemian Rhapsody, that was really cool. We heard a rumor that we will be back headlining that event again next year, so it may become our annual tradition as well! Thanks to the all of the event organizers and especially Sam Ross who brought us together with this chance to entertain everyone.
Well it is with heavy hearts that we announce that one of the founding members of Waterloo5 is moving on to other opportunities. We want to wish Phil well in all his new endeavors, he will be greatly missed. BUT before he goes, we will be doing a show at Fender's on September 21st. and just announced this week a show the next night at the Ugly Mug....and are you in for a treat. Phil will be performing the songs you know and love from Waterloo5 on Friday night and we are going to invite Tom Fitzgerald to join Phil on a few songs that night. Tom has agreed to take on guitar duties for some of the upcoming gigs we have on our schedule while Phil is transitioning to his next project(s).
Sounds confusing, but it is really just going to be a lot of fun! I guarantee it....come see us this weekend and check out all the guitar work on some of our core set songs and some of the new ones we are working to add. Come on out to wish Phil well, and welcome Tom. We will see you in Lewis Center or in Canal Winchester this weekend!!!!
August 25, 2018 —— Been off the board for a little while; it is crazy how fast summer goes by, especially when you are having fun! We’ve stayed busy playing some private gigs in Buckeye Lake (well not really in the lake but BY the lake) and in Piqua. Thank you for having us as part of your celebration. Also, just finished playing at O’Nelly’s last night. As usual, it was a fun night. A shout-out goes to the Buckeye Lake chapter of the Waterloo5 Fan Club! Great to see you all and thanks for coming out. September has a couple of outdoor gigs planned. Come see us in Canal Winchester for the Labor Day Celebration and then come see us in Westerville for the Uptown Untapped event on the 15th. See the Upcoming Shows page for details....hope to see you at one of our September events 🎶✌️😎
July 10, 2018 —— Many thanks to the staff at the Ugly Mug Bar and Grill; our first time there and we had a blast, we hope you did too! Thanks also to One Bad Mutha for letting us join their party, we are very grateful to share the stage with you. There are more thanks to share, it was that kind of night....thanks to Jim Graham for joining Lisa and kicking Zeppelin up a notch, you two brought the house down. Thanks, as always, to Jimmy Hahn for making us sound good, but also for bringing back some memories for Phil and Lisa by playing drums on Long Train Runnin’ ....not a dry eye in the house 😃; and last but not least, thanks to family, friends and fans, new and old, you always make us enjoy bringing Waterloo music into your lives! See you out there. Check our Shows page, September 1st. in Canal Winchester has just been added.
June 27, 2018 ---- Just checkin' in to say....OH MY MY, what a great time we had at Papa Boo's. I'm pretty sure everyone had fun and if you didn't, what is wrong with you! The sun was shining, the drinks were cold, the water was fine and the dance floor was full. We have so much to be grateful for, but most of all, we are thankful to all of you who support us and enjoy coming to see us. We are especially happy to see so many new fans that have heard the word, "and the word is love" (it's a Beatles reference, I couldn't resist) ....and decided to come check us out. We hope you've been successfully Waterloo'd and that we can count on seeing you soon! Check back here to see updates on our Upcoming shows, and follow our Facebook page to get notifications.
June 18, 2018 ---- Happy Father's Day to all those that qualify and a Happy SUNday to everyone else; We just have one word for June so far.... WOW... meaning What Oh What, can top what this month has been. The weather has been wonderful and three outdoor performances have put us in front of all of you and we hope you are enjoying it as much as we are. We've made the rounds, Logan, Whitehall and last Friday night in Canal Winchester. I have an idea, let's do it again at Buckeye Lake! Come and see us at Papa Boo's, music starts at 3pm. Can't wait to see you all this summer, enjoy yourselves be safe and thank you for supporting live music.
May 18, 2018 ---- June is coming fast and it will be a marathon; plan to see us somewhere, just about every weekend of the month; Take a peek at the upcoming shows listing for places and dates; Thank you to those of you that have joined our mailing list; Show reminders will be sent about a week before each gig.
The next show will be back at one of our favorite hang-outs, with a great staff that takes great care of us....Fenders' in Lewis Center on June 1st. This will be a great way to kick off a full month of shows; we all hope you can make it and as usual, we will roll out some new material for your listening pleasure.
Thanks again for all of the continued support, hope to see you on June 1st. or sometime in June! Summer is here and the time is right for Dancing in the Streets, or wherever Waterloo5 is playing.
Apr 7, 2018 ---- Sorry it's been awhile..... Did you miss us? Join our mailing list and we will send you updates to all the happenings! We sure enjoyed ourselves at Finnegan's Wake in Pickerington, OH. on March 31st. Hope to be back there soon. They have a clock in Finnegan's that actually counts down to St. Patrick's Day. Only 350 days, 1 hours and 7 minutes, the last time I looked at it before we broke into another song. We are still adding material to the set list. A few more rehearsals and it will be that time again, to see all of you on a Saturday night at O'Nelly's and guess what! It will be Cinco De Mayo....so you can't miss that show. I'll give you a little history lesson....this is a very important day, it is NOT Mexican Independence Day (that is September 16th. if you must know), it is the day that Mexico defeated France in a battle long ago and guess who was involved, Napoleon....YEP he lost that time too! So now that you know it's not just a day to come out and party and have a great time with family and friends, okay, it's definitely that, BUT, now you can say not only did you celebrate Napoleon's defeat on Cinco De Mayo but you also celebrated it with Waterloo5....should I give you that history lesson too???....hint, Napoleon lost the battle of Waterloo to the English; Learning history while having a good time listening to great music, see we bring everything to our shows, can't wait to see all of you at O'nelly's. Oh, I may need to interpret, it will be on the 5th. of May!
Mar 9, 2018 ---- Back into the studio for a few weeks and yes, we are going to add some additional material. Our fans requested it, so we are going to make it happen. You'll have to be at our next show to find out what we are putting together.
Phil is planning to let loose on Mar 31st. at Finnegan's Wake, so don't miss it! Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and we will see you all in Pickerington at end of this month.
Mar 2, 2018 ---- Such a fun night at Fender's; THANK YOU ALL for being there! New additions to the set list, included some new Shania songs and of course some new Zeppelin and the debut of Bohemian Rhapsody. First time played and it was pretty good, we are glad you all like it and how about Black Dog? Lisa channeled her inner Robert Plant and that song came together....we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Can't wait to see you all next time around!
Feb 24, 2018 ---- Getting ready for the last rehearsal before bringing some new tunes to Fender's, we are all excited! Hey, we heard that Kendall is coming to celebrate her engagement at Fender's on that Friday, so can't wait to see her and everyone else; Music starts at 9pm!
Feb 9, 2018 ---- Back in the studio to work on new material for some upcoming shows in March. I'm pretty sure, you are going to love it, a few danceable, a couple instrumental jams and one pretty spectacular story that might have you thinking about doing the "Fandango, Thunderbolt and Lighting" very, very frightening....we are having a lot of fun putting it together.
Feb 2, 2018 ---- Dayton Hollywood Casino; Good night, strong set; when Eric arrived and got the sound setup up, we were off and running and didn't stop until 12:30am. Great crowd, saw some dancing, heard some appreciation for the Zeppelin songs; We always have a great time in Dayton, can't wait to get back. Thanks to Tammy and Class Acts for having us!
