Welcome, thanks for visiting.

Hello, we started out as Pat and Sean, a father/ son team playing around south central Alaska and later changed our name to the No Wake Band.  We play a variety of familiar folk, country, and rock music.  We are available to play for events and establishments, weddings and parties.  Our modest beginning in music has snow balled and the requests for our music and the scope of events we play in is still growing.  We are very happy with the CD we produced, and we encourage you to check out our music.  Our CD is also available on Amazon and digital downloads are available on iTunes, Spotify, and many other online stores.  Sign up for our mailing list, check out our schedule, come and see us.  Contact us for more information.

Wind in my Sail  

While Stationed in Germany in 1986, being under a lot of stress I was unable to sleep.  I had to get up for work on Ramstein Air Base at 5am.  At 4am, I had not yet fallen to sleep.  I decided to get out of bed and try to learn a Don Williams song that was floating in my head.  Instead, I picked up my 12 string guitar, and this song came to me instantly.  It is the Title track to out recently released CD, Wind in my Sail.  It remains my personal favorite of the songs I have written.  Our music is also available on Amazon, itunes, and other online music outlets.

KTVA 11 News Daybreak show  

This morning we were on the Morning Mic check on KTVA 11:  http://www.ktva.com/mic-check-morning-no-wake-band-583/
This evening we are headed to the the Quaint little drinking town with a big fishing problem, otherwise known as Homer Alaska.  Not only is Homer beautiful, but every time we go there we are either playing music or fishing.  It is a win-win situation.  We will be at Alice's Champagne Palace tomorrow evening.

I have always enjoyed playing in variety shows, and I'm happy to be playing in the Alaska Home Companion show again this year.  Check it out:

We have played at the Alaska State Fair several times at Slippery Gulch.  This year we will be playing again at Slippery Gulch, although a date and time is not set yet.  We will also be playing at the Hitchin Post, which is a new venue for us.  We are really looking forward to it.  We hope to see you there.

Release of our CD, "Wind and my Sail". 

We are excited about the release of the CD Wind in my Sail.  Sean and I have been playing in parties, weddings, bars, salons, fairs, festivals, lodges, hotels and so on of the last five years or so.  We do mostly covers, and sprinkle our original songs in between the familiar cover everybody is familiar with.  We noticed, as I already knew from my experience playing them years ago that we got good responses from people on our original songs.  Five of the six songs on the CD were written by Pat Wake between 1978 and 1986.  Sean's instrumental, "Chasing Sean",  was composed by Sean Renard, who performed it live by himself, by looping.  A family friend, dubbed the song Chasing Sean, so that is what he named it.  The songs on the CD range from light heartedness to heaviness to peacefulness, and they range from country/ folk to rock.  Michelle Larose plays the bass on most of the songs on the CD, and she is very helpful to the band with coordination of the band members and logistics of our performances, so a special thanks to her.  Cameron Cartland plays the drums on the CD.  Cameron was suggested to by Kurt Riemann at the Studio, and we were delighted with his work.  The banjo on "Smoke in my Eyes", was played by Doug Schutte.  Kurt Riemann at Surreal Studios did all of the Studio work.  I Sean and I would like to thank all of them for their work and input to our CD, "Wind in my Sail".  Thank You!
