The Wavy Train concept was first born in August 1995 in Charlotte, NC after the death of Jerry Garcia. Founding members Chris Caudle (lead guitar) & Cal Comerford (Rhythm Guitar) went to the Garcia memorial in Charlotte’s Freedom Park with acoustic guitars as young pups and began playing Grateful Dead tunes. Inspired from the experience, Cal & Chris
enlisted college friends John “Johnny D” Dimier (bass guitar) and Rob Armstrong (keyboards) to begin what was to become Wavy Train. The name was taken from the infamous prankster Wavy Gravy and combined with the words “….we’re riding the Gravy Train.”
