About the Wild West

Wild West Rocks has been promoting rock, punk and alternative acts since 2005. After a break of a few years, we could not stay away. Explorations into web radio evolved into WWR, and our web skills have maybe gotten a little better. Maybe. At the end of the day we still want to get back to promoting shows! Not to be the boy who cried wolf, but the shows will be back. . . have faith.

How did I arrive at the name Wild West Rocks? Well, way back in 2003 I had the brainstorm to bring Irish Guitar Hero, Bernie Torme to the US. In the process I rediscovered the amazing stuff going on right here in and around NYC. Wild West is the first track on Torme's classic Electric Gypsies.

Check out Bernie Torme's Discography here.
