WKNDR (pronounced "weekender") plays a style of music they like to call "alternafolkrock.” Fusing classical flute with iconic guitar riffs and rhythm-driven acoustic guitar, WKNDR plays mostly original music but covers some of their favorite artists as well, like Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, and Wilco.


WKNDR began in 2015 when Jim and Ali teamed up to perform as a duo. Adam came on as drummer after hearing them play at a gig and offered to join because their music “didn’t annoy him.” ;) The trio was tight and the band went through several iterations of a four-piece ensemble and back to a trio over several years. Elliot Johnson joined in 2019 to solidify the lineup and additionally brought his expertise in music theory and production to shape the group’s sound and music. Aaron Jonas played bass and keys with the band from 2021-2023, and then Noah Boyle took over on bass. This is a powerhouse 5-piece band whose footprint only continues to grow.


After releasing a series of singles over several years, WKNDR released their debut album in 2021: “RISING” features 10 original tracks and was mixed and produced by Elliot. Some more singles followed in 2022. The band released an EP, "Brighton Green," in February 2024, also produced and mixed by Elliot!
