Way Too Famous

Way Too Famous has quickly become one of Kansas City’s most sought-after progressive and classic rock bands. Originally founded in 2015 by drummer Derek Gjovig as an Eagles tribute band, the original core of musicians which included guitarist/vocalist Trent Oehlert, keyboardist/vocalist David Page and bassist/vocalist Tim Doherty decided that they wanted to expand the repertoire beyond just one band. Violinist/vocalist Brad Athey was added to the group with guitarist Doug Perkins rounding out the troupe. Way Too Famous features a combination of incredible lead vocals, rich vocal harmonies, technical prowess and shredding soloists. In 2020, guitarist TJ Klein stepped into the lead guitar spot, adding a new dimension to the group with his jazz, country and fusion chops. With the myriad experience and high level of musicianship within the group, Way Too Famous has the unique ability to cover some of the most diverse and difficult music in rock. From The Allman Brothers, The Beatles, Kansas, Steely Dan, Peter Gabriel, Led Zeppelin, The Police, to Foo Fighters, Genesis, Toto, U2 and many more, WTF’s wide variety only adds to their ability to put on a fantastic show. Gaining steam over the last few years, Way Too Famous has had the privilege of performing at KC’s best live music venues as well as many private events. WTF has also gained regional notoriety headlining at many civic festivals, concerts and charity events including the Off The Wall Art Auction benefitting the Sheffield Place, the city of Clinton, MO’s Olde Glory Days and Topeka’s Rock and Food Truck Festival.
