Named after the peaceful and charming resort town at the end of Cape Cod, Wellfleet enters our 12th year and remain committed to the ideal that music brings everyone together. The band’s sound ranges from the bluesy rock of J. Geils Band, the poppier vibe of Blues Traveler, with roots of The Band sprinkled in the mix.
Wellfleet has produced two full-length albums, and their debut “From the Garage” was nominated for 3 Spotlight music awards in 2017. Their second LP, entitled "Bettering" was released in the Fall of 2018. The group is currently in the process of recording their third record, expected to be released in 2023.
Wellfleet has opened for national acts Blues Traveler and John Mayall at sold out shows at the Rochester Opera House, and also participated in 3s Artspace’s Loading Dock series. The band has also frequented other notable local rooms such as the Dover Brickhouse (including an opening slot for Boston legends Bim Skala Bim), and the Press Room in Portsmouth, NH, as well as at town-sponsored events such as the Cocheco Arts Festival in Dover, NH, the Hampton Seafood Festival in Hampton, NH, and the Summer Concert Series at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, VT.
The band splits time between pushing their original music and performing at private events such as weddings, parties, and corporate functions. These gigs have brought them to venues all around New England, including a performance at Fenway Park.
