WAYJO 2019 Act-Belong-Commit Regional Tours

Regional Tour is a highlight for almost every WAYJO member’s calendar. Not only do they experience an intensive week of playing and honing their skills as a band, but they get to share their music with people, from all walks of life, all over Regional WA. Regional audiences are extremely important to WAYJO, and we can’t wait to hit the road once more!
