Wess Meets West is an instrumental electronic infused rock band from The East. Initially, Wess Meets West was intended to be solely an electronic music project by Sam Stauff (My Holy Ghost, A Paper Tugboat). The project stayed this way until 2008 when bassist Bryan Gottshall and drummer Jesse Vengrove were recruited enabling the project to become a live band. In early 2010, bassist Erick Alfisi (ex-Forget Paris, A Paper Tugboat) and drummer Brian DiCrescenzo (ex-The Ghost Sonata, The Attending) joined to keep the project going in a live setting. With new members came a new sound and a new direction for the band. The culmination of these factors is the band's newest endeavor, "Chevaliers". "Chevaliers" is the band's most expansive effort, combining the creative influence of all the members, past and present, while pushing the sound to its furthest limitations. The ever-expanding lineup has recently grown to include Mike Howard and Ian Tait to help accurately present the new sound in a live setting. Wess Meets West will continue to explore new musical territories and tour the northeast in 2012.
