Orange Willard at Canal Street Tavern

Orange Willard at Canal Street Tavern

By Nicole Wroten

According to, well, themselves, Orange Willard has been called “the toast of Dayton,” a “local phenom,” and “a band to watch out for.” Come find out if they’re all those things yourself on January 1, at Cana Street Tavern where they’ll be performing with Authors and Audio for a special New Year’s Day show. Orange Willard can best be described as having a blues-metal/funk-rock sound with stellar talent from members Rusty Paquay on vocals, Charley Skira and Josh Gwin on guitar, Eric Ditmer on bass and Gub Pedrotti on drums, i.e., the “five guys who rock.” Orange Willard will appear Saturday, Jan. 1 at Canal Street Tavern, with opening act Authors and Audio and Market St. Dream. Tickets are $5. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9:30 p.m. More information can be found online at www.orangewillard.com or www.canalstreettavern.com.
