“The kings of New York City rock ’n’ roll” LA Weekly
“Armed with big choruses, blazing guitar solos, and powerful melodies, WILDSTREET is a sex-fueled rock n roll explosion beckoning the glory days of 80s arena rock.
“They (Dorothy) found the most awesome opening band, WILDSTREET, who warmed up the crowd in the best possible way. Exceeding beyond expectations, with remnants of Motley Crue in the best of nostalgic ways that rekindled my love of ‘Too Young To Fall In Love’, but in a more intense way that sweeps the rug under your feet way. Each band member brings their unique personality, you’ll never know at what point you’ll get surprised. At one point they even played on their guitars simultaneously onstage while the crowd yelled and applauded in amazement.”
Pancakes & Whiskey
“If Wildstreet don’t get your heart pumping and feet moving. you should go see the doctor because I’m pretty sure you could be considered legally dead…”
HARD ROCK NIGHTS
“Do you wanna have a good time, do you wanna party? Wildstreet is the perfect party starter, their mix of straight ahead non compromising hard rock and singalong choruses makes them easy to love. Let there be rock! ”
“Wildstreet’s name personifies the entire band in sound and appearance—wild. With singer Eric Jayk’s crazy hair/attire, one might pass them by as an 80s gimmick, but they would be missing a hell of a show. The band put on an energetic performance, rallying the crowd like most bands only wish they could do!
“The band Wildstreet is one of my absolute favorites. They are the complete embodiment of every thing I love about music.”
