The Wise Guys

The Wise Guys

Artist Information

From their beginning in the late 1970’s as a four-part harmony acapella group, to their hard gigging days playing over a hundred dates a year in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, to the building of the refined and powerful band sound of The Wise Guys today, you have to experience a Wise Guys performance to fully appreciate how great live oldies rock n’roll can be.

Drawing from a repertoire of hundreds of songs from great artists like The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Hollies and Tommy James and the Shondells, The Wise Guys put forth highly-articulated 4 part harmonized vocals over instrumentation that is period-correct. The Wise Guys are also well known for spontaneous humor that builds a unique and fun experience into their performances. A year ago, Sandi Davis, entertainment editor of The Daily Oklahoman, picked a Wise Guys show as Number 1 entertainment choice in the metro in her column “Sandi’s Best Bets” and called the band “Oklahoma City’s Favorite.”
