Wylde Nept: News

Thanks for joining us! - March 31, 2014

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our various St. Patrick's Day Celebrations all through the month of March!  The band had a lot of fun, but we owe it to everyone who celebrated with us at all of our new venues.  Whether you were there for the full house at The Mill in Iowa City, braved the constant snowfall during the Dubuque Street Party, or hoisted beers with us on a late St. Patrick's Day Monday night at Jameson's in Waterloo, it was a great time!

Now that the band is recovering, keep your eyes on our calendar page for future show dates as the Spring/Summer season begins.

The New Year finds many of looking back and reflecting on the past.  And with that ham-fisted segue, let’s introduce our new Photo Gallery!  Just click on the “Photo Gallery” button and you’ll be taken to a series of mini galleries, each with slideshows of days-gone-by.

But let’s not get too nostalgic!  Send us your recent photos, and we’ll add them to the gallery as 2012 marches on.  And as more vintage photos are unearthed, we may add those, too.

Happy New Year...and Sligo!

Then, Saturday the 29th, it’s the annual Wylde Nept Halloween Show! There’ll be candy, a costume contest at midnight with lots of prizes, plus all of the strange and unusual musical treats that Wylde Nept performs only this one night a year! What will the band’s costumes be this time?

Zombies and Haggis! - September 21, 2011

Special thanks!
Thanks to everyone who joined us for the show at Jamison’s Public House this last weekend!  In years past, we’ve spent that weekend in the company of the Annual Iowa City Zombie March, a great little walk organized to raise funds for charities.  And in the spirit of their event, we’ve donated our paycheck to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  For more information on how you can help out, visit  Again, thanks to everyone who came to the show, and to Jamison’s for making the show possible!

This weekend is the All Things Scottish CelticFest, brought to you by the Hawkeye Area Grand Gaelic Isles Society (H.A.G.G.I.S.).  But this year there are two differences for us.  First, the event is now being held at the Middle Amana Community Park in the Amana Colonies.  And second, we’ll be doing two shows instead of just one; 2:15 and 5:00!  Come out and enjoy Scottish food, Highland Games, and of course, music by Wylde Nept!
